Close to New York and even closer to Philadelphia, Atlantic City is the East Coast's playground - a 24-hour party people mix of beaches and casinos. Sure Vegas has the glitz - but so do holidays in Atlantic City, where you can work on your tan during the day, and then party by night. With a fine stretch of sand, sparkling ocean, a whole host of attractions and some of the best night-life you'll find anywhere, why go West Coast when you can go East?
The four-mile-long Boardwalk is where most of the action is on holidays in Atlantic City. The pride of the city since 1870, it's packed with every kind of entertainment and home to a string of mega casinos. Strolling its length with a bag of salt-water taffy is a must - or save your legs and cruise along in a trademark 'rolling chair' instead. The Boardwalk bustles with people day and night, and there's shops, restaurants, bars, and any other number of places to be discovered.
A voyage of discovery is what Atlantic City's twelve casinos are all about, too. There's some big names here, including Caesar's, Harrah's and Bally's, as well as some extravagant theming. Caesar's channels Ancient Rome; the Trump Taj Mahal is a lesson in Indian exotica; and at the Cuban-themed Tropicana it's like being whisked off to Havana. Even if you're not a fan of the tables, you'll want to spend time enjoying the resorts' shops, spas, restaurants and multiple other entertainments.
Plus there's plenty more to do besides. Catching a movie at the Tropicana's huge IMAX screen is guaranteed to leave a big impression; the kids will love the aquarium; and everyone is charmed by the quaintly retro amusement rides of Steel Pier. Who needs Vegas anyway?

A spot of gambling is a must on holidays in Atlantic City. Just take your pick from any of the casinos based along the Boardwalk or at the Marina, and try your luck. You can choose from slots, blackjack, poker, roulette, craps - and a bunch of games you'll probably never have heard of. If you want to learn the ropes first, many of the casinos offer free lessons.
From the souvenir shops along the Boardwalk, to the designer names that pack out the Pier at Caesar's, there's shops to suit every budget in Atlantic City. The Walk is an open-air collection of restaurants, entertainment venues and outlet stores where you're bound to bag a bargain: there's around one hundred shops, including many big name brands.
This distinctive black-and-white lighthouse is New Jersey's tallest. Climb the 228 steps to the top, to get up close to its original Fresnel Lens, first lit in 1857, and for superb views across the ocean and the Atlantic City skyline. There's a fascinating museum and replica lighthouse keeper's dwelling to explore too.
There's plenty of places to party the night away, whether in the beach bars along the Boardwalk, or the buzzing bars and clubs of the casino resorts. There's also second-to-none live comedy and music, courtesy of the Convention Centre, the Boardwalk Hall and the casino theatres. Just some of the names due to appear in 2014 include: Aretha Franklin, Lady Gaga, Pet Shop Boys, Jerry Seinfeld, Diana Ross and Joan Rivers.
Take A Trip
Atlantic City isn't all the Jersey Shore has to offer. Take a trip down to Cape May to enjoy a genteel Victorian seaside resort that's said to be America's oldest. Expect historic 'gingerbread' houses, cafés, boutiques , galleries and gaslit inns.
