Normally our HSW postings are about amazing places and things to do that we believe should be on any traveler’s bucket list. Although we’ve covered today’s location before, we felt given the latest headlines that it was necessary to shine the spot light on it one more time.
The iconic Atlantic City is a sight to behold, from the beautiful architecture of the buildings to the adventurous scene that surrounds the outlets and shopping centers to the glowing lights of the famous casinos to the abundance of food and activities that line the boardwalk. It has been a tourist attraction for years with a little something for everyone who visits.
If you have been keeping up with news, you know that there is some financial trouble that has caused some of the casinos and hotels we come to know and love to close their doors and threatens to have others follow the same path. In fact it has been reported that just yesterday Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort filed for bankruptcy protection and threatened to close its doors by Thanksgiving if expenses were not cut making it #5 on the list of closings.
Even with all of this, the remaining casinos are still thriving and welcoming visitors to stay and play to their heart’s content. So if you’ve been wanting to visit, but putting it off, this might be the year you want to plan a weekend getaway.
