Atlantic City is very lively day and night. Casinos, boardwalk, nightlife, restaurants, a beach and shopping. Travel from Manhattan to Atlantic City can be done in several different ways. We chose the Atlantic City Express Train Service (ACES). We traveled from New York, midtown Manhattan, Penn Station. The journey took about 2 hours 40 minutes. I’m not sure whether this has been discontinued but assume there still is a train service from Penn Station if not then there is alternative travel to Atlantic City. When we got there we hopped into a cab which took us to our hotel. The Trump Taj Mahal, we cannot fault it. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was on the 89th floor and it was spotless. The bathroom was huge with a fantastic walk in shower, twin basins and a serparate toilet. The casino was fun. The food was very reasonably priced. We had a 14oz steak meal for $19.99. We went for walks along the broadwalk which was lovely. We ate in the hotel as there were many venues in house and it saved wasting too much of the little time we had there looking for others. The food from all the venues that we tried was acceptable and was not disapointing. We also wondered off in the other direction to the Broadwalk through the front of the hotel inland and found some interesting shops which are well worth a look.
The Trump Taj Mahal has two towers, one newer than the other. The Chairman Tower is the way to go if you like newer accomodation.
The Broadwalk was very busy and very long. It was interesting to see the hussle and activity. There was also a nice beach if you are so inclined. We settled for walking the great length of the Broadwalk and found a shopping mall stretching into a pier. Interesting shops and eating places.
