The new hotel Revel is nice and glamorous and VEGAS-like 🙂 I love harrahs properties like harrahs ballys showboat wild wild west. Tropicana has great resturants and great nightlife. Borgota and Water Club are also super fun and fancy.

Bally’s is a nice casino/hotel. You can use the rewards points at their other locations as well.

If I were you, I would do a couple days in Atlantic City and then go to a nice place on the shore (maybe LBI?). AC is fun for a bit, but isn’t very romantic.

Borgata is the only place I stay in AC, though never been to the new Revel. Borgata is not right on the strip, which I prefer.  

You should also look into Delaware beaches.  Fenwick Island has been voted one of the best beaches in the world. The drive wouldn’t be much further than to AC.

Yeah, I’m gonna agree with some of the other ladies and say that AC isn’t very romantic. However, I was born and raised in Southern New Jersey and my ex is from that area, so I frequented it a lot. I’d definitely suggest staying in the new Revel casino if possible, or the Borgata or the new tower in Harrahs. All very gorgeous. If you want to stay on the main strip Caesars rooms are gorgeous as well.

There are a lot of fantastic restaurants. I’d definitely recommend Buddakan in the Pier at Caesars (which also has other great restaurants and high end fashions), PF Changs in The Quarter in the Tropicana, Girasole which is a fantastic Italian restaurant (right on Pacific Avenue down by the beginning of the strip near the Hilton/Tropicana), and Ruth’s Chris is also fantastic. Definitely have some great dining options in AC!

If you’re looking for some romance I’d recommend a trip to Cape May. My grandmother lives about 7 minutes from there and it’s always been one of my favorite places in the world. Great beaches, great “old world, colonial” atmosphere.

If you have any questions about the area feel free to PM me! I’d be more than happy to help!  🙂

Cape May’s a beach town- very romantic B&Bs there- I also recommend it- think it would be more appropriate for a honeymoon.

I went to AC a year ago and told my Darling Husband I would never go back and my Darling Husband went for his bach party anyway and now we both say the same thing…WE WILL never go back.

I think Harrah’s would be super fun for a honeymoon, plus check out what shows and events are happening at all the other casino resorts, and hop around
