Distance Skyline Tower to Trump

Hi I am staying at the Skyline Tower for 2 nights and going to a show at the Trump. How far apart are they? I am also renting a car where is the cheapest place to park it?

soleglo... There are three Trump properties in town. Trump Taj Mahal is closest to Skyline, about a brisk 5 minute walk. Trump Plaza is south of the Skyline, and is fairly good hoof; figure about 12-15 minute walk. Last Trump property is Trump Marina, which I do not advise walking to from Skyline, as the Donald's place is not on the Boardwalk. Probably about a 10 minute drive.

As for parking, I believe Skyline charges a mandatory $10 valet parking fee. If weather is nice, just keep your car there and walk if your show is at the Plaza or the Taj. You can always use the casino coat check to store your jacket.

If you must drive to the concert's host casino, your cost will be anywhere from $5 to $10, depending on the night and what time you get there. Cheapest place to park your car would be if you have a Total Rewards card with Harrahs' casinos. Diamond and above status would guarantee you free parking, and sometimes Gold (lowest level) will, too.

This your first time in Atlantic City?

soleglo... Getting to the marina section of the city can be confusing if you are unfamiliar with it. There are signs, but you can still get disoriented.

My honest suggestion to you would be to take the jitneys from in front of the Skyline to the the front of Trump Marina. The jitneys are small blueish buses that traverse the whole city. They run every few minutes --never a long wait-- and cost $2 per person per ride. Though you could probably park for about the same cost at Trump Marina as it would cost you to pay for 2 roundtrip jitney rides for 2 people, at least this way you will be assured of not getting lost.

Just a suggestion, that's all. Hope you enjoy your time in AC! <grin> Who are you going to see, anyway?

I just might do the jitneys. I am going to see Smokey Robinson. On another note, although I am not a big gambler I do like roulette. Any insight on where to play roulette?

What will the weather be like then?

soleglo... Seeing Smokey at the very end of March should bring you mild weather, though I'm betting that the evenings will be rather cool. Hopefully Spring gets here early! <grin>

As for roulette, all AC casinos use the double 00 wheel. Some casinos have the single 0 wheel (which cuts the house edge in half), but you will pay dearly for this advantage: minimum bets will be $50 and up for this. If you just want to play low stakes roulette, you will have to content yourself with playing either $5 or $10 tables at any place you're at on the 00 wheel.

Make 'em pay by drinking some "doubles"! LOL

In any event, hope you enjoy your time in wonderful AC in March! I am sure Smokey --living legend that he is-- will make it worth your while! <grin>

Thanks for all of the information, I have been a big Smokey fan for over 20 yrs but have never seen him and figured since I had never been to AC I could kill 2 birds with one stone.

When you say "make em pay" does that mean drinks are free when gambling? I know that might be a dumb question but as I said I really don't gamble but I do like roulette!!! Are the casinos open 24 hours? Do the jitneys run 24 hours??

Drinks are free when gambling (except at a very few of the video poker bars) . Marina doesn't have a video poker bar . There are two at Harrah's ( walking distance from Trump Marina) with free drinks . Casinos are open 24 hours . Jitneys are 24 hours but might be a bit of a wait after 2am or so over by the Marina . You can always get a cab though .
