I've never been to Atlantic City before because all my friends call it a dirty version of Vegas. I have been to Vegas MANY times (even went last month) and even though I live on the East Coast, I have never really bothered to check Atlantic City out.
Now obviously I know Vegas is extremely over the top and almost nothing can compare, but how similar/different are the 2 places?
My birthday is next month and I was planning on going to Vegas as usual, but my friends can't get enough time off work so I am thinking of Atlantic City as an alternative (we can just make it a weekend trip on the east coast)
How to the hotels, casinos, restaurants, entertainment compare to Vegas?
And also, I know nothing about this place so anything I should know about hotel, restaurant, show/activity recommendations?
Thanks for the help.Edited: 06 July 2010, 00:24
