120 Hours of Atlantic City’s Jersey Shore

In 2011, I spent 5 days in Atlantic City, New Jersey. I visited the Tropicana, Caesar’s Palace, and the Trump Taj Mahal. I also walked a bit of the famous Atlantic City Boardwalk.

We lucked out and had nice weather for most of the trip.

Visiting Trump’s Taj Mahal was something that interested me ever since I read Trump’s business books when I was a kid. I was always impressed with his success as a businessman. Only later did I learn what an asshat he is.

Not surprisingly, the casino is very flashy and bright. But I couldn’t help feeling like it was stuck in the 70’s or 80’s. Plus, the crowd was almost exclusively elderly people. I dare say I was the youngest person there. Very odd vibe.

I don’t gamble so I just went to eat dinner there. There’s an Asian restaurant on the second floor. I had pork fried rice and kimchee. The food was great but way overpriced. The wait staff was very friendly but I’m sure it helped that I was the only customer.

Without a doubt, the beach beat out the casinos.

Have you been to Atlantic City? What did you think?
