Did you know there is treasure to be found in Atlantic City?
You don’t need a shovel. You don’t need to look for X-marks the spot. You may need a map but you won’t have to share. There is plenty for everyone.
Why tucked away between the casinos and bright lights of Atlantic City are some gems that local families have come to discover. Karen and I are set to explore them with you. It’s why we created Family Friendly AC in the first place. We are the ONLY online publication whose sole purpose is to promote what is Family Friendly about Atlantic City. And we hope to inspire and be part of newer family friendly promotions for the Atlantic City.
This weekend, Karen and I hosted the first overnight family blogging event Atlantic City has ever seen, called Bloggers at the Beach. (We know there will be many more.) It was a whirlwind weekend. We will be telling you all about in upcoming posts. From Friday night to Saturday afternoon, bloggers saw Atlantic City in a whole new light. Old ideas and notions of what Atlantic City could and couldn’t be washed out to sea. They were replaced with new memories of all their children had explored and ideas for future family vacations to the area. Over two days they experienced the following with their families:
- Lunch at the Harrah’s Steakhouse
- Playtime and hotel accommodations at the Harrah’s Resort and Family Fun Center
- Viewing of the Coral Reef Adventures with their families at the Tropicana Casino IMAX Theatre
- Watching dolphins from aboard the Atlantic City Cruises boat
- Lunch at Scales in Gardner’s Basin
- Petting sharks at the Ocean Life Center Aquarium
- Climbing up Lucy the Elephant
Below our guests are linking up their stories from their weekend. Take a look and enjoy reading why Atlantic City can be a great place for your family to visit. You will need to click on the blue face to be taken to the list of stories or to add one.
