As much as my husband and I enjoyed ourselves on our last visit to AC (June 21st) one of the things I continue to notice is how sad that boardwalk really is. With the addition of the new Ceasars Mall it has really added a pleasant atmosphere to the area, but many of the shops and eateries are just horrible. Some of the "junk" that is sold in these stores are terrible. Thank goodness for the new outlets, some of the better boutique shops and the again the new mall and better dining choices in and around the boardwalk. I understand many of the people that own these not so desirable shops are just trying to make a buck, but if AC really wants to change its image, it has to make that boardwalk a lot more attractive. Some of us can't afford those high end stores. When we my husband and I stopped for drinks at the restaurant EVO, we almost forgot we were in AC. The place is that nice. The same goes for the Quarter at Tropicana. Come in from the street side of AC and walk into this hotel, and you never want to leave. I look foward to the day, when I can stroll that boardwalk and feel like I am in a tropical resort, only an hours drive away from home. I know its coming! Otherwise AC is still a cool place to visit.
Just my personal thoughts on the boardwalk!!
