Atlantic City, NJ, is the go-to spot for gamblers who can’t make it to Las Vegas. But that’s not the only reason you should plan a trip down the shore—the seaside city’s perfect for bachelor(ette) parties, romantic getaways and day trips when you just need to get outta the city. Try out the best restaurants in Atlantic City and hit the casino (with a pit stop for a dip in the pool at Harrah’s). Oh, and there are plenty of buses to Atlantic City, so you don’t even have to worry about driving hungover the next morning.
