If you thought Atlantic City was only slot machines and cocktail waitresses, think again. This South Jersey seaside city is reinventing itself as a family destination.
My kids and I took an overnight vacation to Atlantic City last spring, with winning results. The kids were excited to walk the actual streets whose names they recognized from frequent games of Monopoly. We headed over to the boardwalk, and though it was too cold to swim, there were lots of activities to keep the kids entertained. We had a great time visiting the emporium of the weird and freaky, Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Museum. We hit the famed amusement park, the Steel Pier, and had a ball on the rides and trying our luck at the arcade games.
