Man (which includes women) is a gambler by instinct. We gamble on everything be it a cricket match, the weather, outcome of a war or skirmish, whether the boss will come to the office in time, what kind of food will be available for lunch, and everything which the mind can conceive of and imagine. With gambling being so much a part of our lives, it is strange that very few cities have been designed for the exclusive purpose of gambling and these are obviously some of the major and most popular tourist attractions in the world. Such places include the Casinos of Kathmandu, the island of Macau, Genting Heights not far from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, the entire area of Monaco in Monte Carlo and a few more. However, nowhere is the spirit of gambling captured in giant mentions and casinos as it is the United States of America.

    We had a really great time in Atlantic City,New Jersey.
    We had heard a lot of good experiences from friends about the Trump Taj Mahal..And they indeed turned out true for us too!From the time we drove up to the building, everything was just so much fun..The rooms were well-organized and accommodating! We had an elderly parent with us so asked for an adjoining room which we got!
    After trying several other casinos in that area we found this to be the best.! There were many good restaurants in the hotel like Hard Rock Cafe and all the staff were really friendly and nice!
    Overall we had a fantastic experience here! :-)

    Hi Tex Capp!

    I’ve been to the “Thunder over the BoardWalk” and it is the best air show in New Jersey!
    Dock’s is just the ULTIMATE place for an AUTHENTIC cuisine of DELICIOUS sea food! There is a small bar to the right witha very good piano player!
    One of the servers noticed that my wife drinks only water..So to make it extra special she bought a tall glass with an olive and lemon peel on the pick with water in the glass!! That was really nice! The seafood tasted great!
    Great evening we had here at Docks! :-)

    If you are looking for something other than casinos then going to the lighthouse will make for a good visit.
    Climbing up the stairs of the light house is a good exercise or for anyone who like climbing up steps.! The views of the Atlantic City are lovely from the top of the lighthouse!

    This is something historic in AC and indeed the best!
