What about renting some place in Cape May? It’s definitely different than casinos but it’s a lovely town. Honestly, AC had a weird vibe the last few times I went down

Wildwood would be fun with the boardwalk and you can do a day trip to Atlantic City, it is only 45 minutes away

Go to the city! I’m from Brooklyn and my fiance is from NJ.

Do an escape room! I did for mine and it was super fun. Went to a hotel to drink and play cards against humanity in our PJs after. Too low key for some, but I loved it 🙂

Idk if it’s your scene but what about Hoboken/Jersey City area? The nightlife over there is fun and there are great restaurants and bars where you can bar hop.. And you can even grab the path train to the village and rock out over in the city for the after party..

We did the Borgata in AC for mine and had a great time.  Spent days by the pool/spa, had a nice dinner and then went to the club in the hotel.  It was nice b/c it was January in the northeast & everything was indoors so we didn’t have to travel in the cold.  Plus, IMO, the Borgata has a nicer feel to it than the hotels/casinos on the train station side of AC which seem pretty seedy (I’ve never stayed there but have been to the outlets nearby).

March? It would be cold and the boardwalk is closed anyway

I would definitely do NYC or Philly over AC. If you are going to do AC, you’ll want to stay at the Borgata-unfortunately, the rest of AC is in dire straits economically, and is basically the opposite of the festive atmosphere you presumably want for your bachelorette party. 

Prices may have come down, but I’ve stayed at the Borgata a few times and it was spendy…you could easily get a decent to nice hotel room in Philly or NYC for the same price and have a lot more dining/entertainment options. 

Hoboken is another option, but if you’re going there, you may as well go to the city.

MrsSapphire:  

What are you looking to do? Are you looking for bars to get drinks at, a spa Day, a nice dinner, etc.?

My first thought is to elaborate on AC, but I see everyone has covered that!

I’m planning a bachelorette for my friend for next year at a winery. South Jersey has tonssssss – Laurita is the the first one I can think of and the one I’ve been to most recently. Tomasello? Valenzano? Can’t remember where in Jersey those are. But you could do a wine tasting, and stay at a hotel nearby, and then do a spa day the next day? There are some nice hotels in the Princeton area. Not sure what part of Jersey you were looking to stick to…

That way the “key” is customizable for you and your friends – low key or…high(?) key…is that a thing? Anyway, you get it. 🙂
