I'm going to be in Atlantic City for a 2-3 days in the middle of the week in October (My first time there). I want to see the boardwalk and other sights during the mornings and I'll probably spend the afternoons/evenings playing poker.
I understand that the Borgata is the best place to be playing poker in regard to the volume of games (especially during the low season which is when i'll be there). Initially i thought I'd also sleep there but then i saw that I can sleep in the near by Harrah's for much much less (~50 dollars in Harrah's per night including taxes vs ~125 Borgata). I don't think that I'll spend much time in the room...
Is it worth it to stay in Harrah's and travel back and from to the Borgata to play poker? It seems that they are fairly close, how easy is it to get from one to the other? I thought about taking the bus during the day and a cab if I'm returning late at night, does this sounds like a good idea?
Is it also possible to walk it during the day? How much time should it take?
