Times in Atlantic City
sun was pouring through the open oceanfront balcony drapes
of my suite at The Flagship Resort. Normally I'd pull the
covers over my head cursing myself for not closing the blinds
before heading to dreamland. But this morning, something compelled
me to rise. I walked to the large windows overlooking the
famed Boardwalk and stood captivated by the white-capped Atlantic
waves in the inland waterway. I knew then there was something
rejuvenating about this place.
City was more than I expected. From the moment the sun rose
over the water, I knew this would be a memorable trip. First
stop - breakfast! I ventured out taking in the sights and
sounds of the Jersey shore. There were many choices, but I
chose the all-you-can-eat buffet at the Bombay Cafe in Taj
Mahal. Exotic atmosphere and the allure of the nearby casino
floor (already busy at 7:30 a.m.) piqued my interest.
spent the day "on the Boards" perusing the shops
and combing the wide beaches for shells. Atlantic City is
more than bright lights and non-stop excitement. With loads
of information from AtlanticCitysBest.com, I headed to White
House Sub on Arctic Ave for lunch, the upscale Pier Shops
at Caesars, the aquarium, and finally the lighthouse.
darkness fell I went to Angelo's Fairmount Tavern for dinner.
I was delighted with the authentic Italian food and service.
It's a must for anyone seeking a little isolation. After dinner
I walked with anticipation back to the casinos. I decided
to hit Bally's Wild West first. After two hours of playing
slots I decided to check out the Comedy Stop at the Tropicana.
night's end I headed back to the Flagship and jotted a reminder
to send the folks at AtlanticCitysBest.com a thank you for
their helpful advice. I can't wait to return; Atlantic City
now tops my list of getaways!
