Atlantic City: the Other Gaming US Destination

May 18th, 2010 | By

You might have heard of Atlantic City’s rival, somewhere called Las Vegas. Atlantic City is a bit smaller. It only has 11 casinos compared to the 40 odd you’ll find in Las Vegas but oddly enough Atlantic City takes proportionately more cash per casino than Las Vegas does. Like Las Vegas, it’s a weekend resort as Americans catch the fast ACES (Atlantic City Express Service) train link which leaves New York’s Penn Station and stops only at Newark to collect passengers flying in. But the express only runs at the weekend and Fridays. That means that hotel rates can be expensive so visit Atlantic City during the week instead. As an add on to a trip to New York, a day or so away from the big apple will show you a different world.
