2016 impressions of AC

I typically stay in Atlantic City once or twice a year but the past few years were so stressful that I must have driven back home each night after business meetings rather than stay over. So it’s been longer than I realize since I’ve actually spent leisure time here. A few new observations:

– almost constant sirens downtown. Police, fire, ambulance every minute or so.

– lots of dogs at Harrahs. Seemed like a good idea until I saw on in the pool.

– Borgatta is more upscale but less ‘fun’ than Harrahs

– I easily forget how expensive a good meal can be down here. Even so, I did not find anything to brag about. $40 lunch, &70 dinner.

– obesity rate is astounding here

– Golden Nugget pool is a good place to be young and single and affluent especially if you come from South Philadelphia.

– Overall look and feel of down town economy is negative

– despite my less than raving comments, I will keep coming back, especially for the NJCPA.
