Atlantic City
There’s more to Atlantic City than bronzing on the beach and gambling; AC is a major venue for countless concerts, theater productions, and sporting events. Check out what's playing during your stay; many hotels also hold art installations and special exhibitions. History buffs will want to visit the Korean War Memorial—on the boardwalk next to Bally’s—or plan a day at the Atlantic City Historical Museum. Escape the pinging of the slot machines by checking out the cultural exhibits at the free public library or by going for a hike in the state parks and forests, a mere half-hour drive away.
