The Atlantic City casinos and resorts bring thousands of annual visitors to the city. EscapeWizard.com urges you to take part in what the city is known for. If you are looking to win big at the slots, try your hand at poker or blackjack, or see an exciting show, Atlantic City is the place for you. The casinos offer gaming 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Each of the major casinos has its own theme and style of hospitality, and most are located off of Pacific Avenue or the Boardwalk. EscapeWizard.com just reminds all vacationers to gamble responsibly.

The Atlantic City Boardwalk has been called the backbone of the city. The Boardwalk is an almost six mile stretch from Atlantic City to Ventnor City. It provides access to the beach and ocean on one side and hotels, resorts, casinos, shops, and more on the other side. EscapeWizard.com recommends the Boardwalk Walking Tour where visitors can read the markers situated along the Boardwalk and learn about Atlantic City history. When taking a break from gambling, shopping, or site-seeing, stroll along the Boardwalk and go to the beach. The beach offers many enjoyable activities, for example surfing, kayaking, wind surfing, and beach volleyball.

Not only does the Boardwalk provide access to beaches, resorts, and attractions but it also offers a terrific shopping experience. Along the Boardwalk, you can find specialty shops and taste delicious salt-water taffy or fudge. There are also plenty of souvenir shops to buy gifts to commemorate your visit to Atlantic City. We here at EscapeWizard.com would be remiss if we did not mention the other shopping areas in Atlantic City, which is known as one of the best shopping areas on the East Coast. A great shopping center is the Atlantic City Outlets—The Walk. Located at the end of the Atlantic City Expressway, this shopping area offers name brand outlet stores, restaurants, and a night club. You can find other shopping malls at the Caesars and Tropicana casinos. The Pier Shops at Caesars is the place to go for exclusive, high-end retail stores, and the Quarter at Tropicana has over 30 unique shops that visitors are sure to appreciate.

A visit to Atlantic City is not complete without taking advantage of the nightlife. If you are staying in one of the casino resorts, then you can find a bar or lounge within walking distance. There are also bars and clubs off of Atlantic and Pacific Avenues. We at EscapeWizard.com assure you that getting to these and other places in Atlantic City is easy thanks to the jitneys—mini-busses that provide convenient transportation to various parts of the city.

Whether you are interested in gambling, history, shopping, beaches, or attractions, EscapeWizard.com assures you that there is something for you in the city that is “always turned on.” This city that inspired the original Parker Brothers Monopoly game offers activities for every member of the family, including many free activities.
