Atlantic City - anyone been?
Got a few days there later in the year. What's it like?
Seen conflicting reports that it's either a good place or a bit of a dump. Obviously I'm not expecting close to a Vegas experience, but curious as to what's awaiting.

Anything to do aside from the casinos or is it literally that? (Not that that's really a problem)

Funny you should say that Gavvy, we went for a night out while in Atlantic City to a place called Margate, which was a cab ride away.

I went in the early 90’s to see a fight, and to be honest it was a bit iffy in parts back then. Not sure if it’s improved.

Its track two on the NEBRASKA album and the only song to be released as a single from said album.

I have been for a stag do before.

I can categorically tell you without any fear of reproach that it is one of the biggest shit holes I've ever been to. It's run down, every where is tired and grim - and you step off the strip, then watch out because after dark it's pretty lively.

The only decent place that was there when I went was a brand new hotel that opened called Revel - that went bankrupt within a year and is now closed.

I went a good few years back. It's ok, I was there on a conference, so not enough time to get bored.

You'll get chatted up by hookers at the bar, complimenting your Brit accent. Obviously they don't say they are hookers, but when I said I wasn't interested she moved on to a colleague pretty quickly. He did not believe me, and went off with her. He came back an hour later, $300 worse off :-)

Yeah, it's not a prime destination by any means! Suffers from being in the middle of nowhere stuck between more popular places like New York and 'proper' holiday destinations further south. Great and interesting history though.

Just passing through it for a couple of days so hopefully will find something to do. Should be some decent buildings etc and a nice stroll on the boardwalk at least, but otherwise it wouldn't be the end of the world to be playing poker or craps for the duration.
