@goldengrlbride:  im actually going to a bachelorette party in AC next weekend.  We got an awesome rate at a boutique hotel thanks to living social and were partying it up at Dusk in Caesars.  My friends arranged a bottle service there.  None of us are big gamblers tho but after a few drinks we might be. 

I drive down fairly often (its only a 90 min drive) and usually go to the Borgata.  But its no where near the other casinos and always fairly pricey gambling.  Most minimum bets start at $5-7.  and thats early they jump quickly through the course of the night.  I’d stick to casinos on/near the boardwalk since its easier to get to one from the other, plus the beach is right there.

As intriguing as it may be, I’d stay away from Revel.  Thats the spanking new casino thats opening up this weekend.  Since its so new its going to be beyond packed with people.  I think its supposed to be the Borgata’s big competition too.

It depends what you like to do. I am going to Tropicana for my bachelorette because there are many bars and I like bar-hopping. The club at Borgota is great if you are clubby. And Revel is gorgeous but like PP said will be packed, but maybe u like that…Have fun! Ill be at Revel Monday to see Beyonce!

A group of my friends and I stayed at Harrah’s a couple of months ago and loved it! It was affordable and connected to a lot of other hotels (with clubs) and casinos, so you don’t even have to go outside if you don’t want to. I would suggest calling some of the hotels/clubs ahead of time to either get bottle service or reserve tables. There are also some fabulous outlets in AC to go shopping during the day! Have a blast!

I usually stay at the Tropicana. I love it there. Lots of choices! I am also a fan of the Borgata, but sometimes the rooms are just too pricey. I have heard lots of good things about Revel and can’t wait to go!

I organized a bachelorette party at Providence at the Tropicana this past October.  They offer a bachelorette package has a male dancer and a photographer, as well as a private room with bottle service and some party favors.  I don’t think it’s necessary to do the package, because the room is isolated from the main dance floor, and it was a bit of a pain getting things organized, and you can get bottle service otherwise.,,not to mention it took a month and several emails to get the photos.  But Tropicana is great for its variety of bars and restaurants.

I personally don’t like the rooms at Tropicana all that much.  I used to stay at Caesar’s, but now I typically go to the places on the Marina (Borgata, Harrah’s, Golden Nugget).  The only issue with the marina is that it’s not as easy to hop from one place to the next as it is at the casino/hotels on the boardwalk.  Caesar’s has the pier with all the shops, bars, and restaurants.

For daytime things, if you like spa treatments, many of the casino hotels have great spas you could splurge on.  There is always the beach – Ventnor, Margate, and Longport are really nice beaches going downbeach, and the towns themselves are nicer than Atlantic City.  Ventnor and Atlantic City have boardwalks.  Depending on what you like to do, you can find places to rent bikes, boats/hobie cats/kayaks, go fishing, play tennis, golf etc.  The outlets in Atlantic City are pretty nice, and most of the casinos have some higher end shops.  Many casinos have lower minimum bets during the day, if you want to do some gambling early.  Check out the deck bar at the Golden Nugget – they sometimes have bands on their deck during the day.  Check atlanticcitynj.com for more ideas.
