Best Weekend Getaway


Atlantic City can be anything you want it to be. With its strip of casinos alongside sandy beaches that are walking distance from the Tanger Outlets, AC is the perfect place for families, couples, or groups of friends looking for a few days of shenanigans. Fewer frills and thrills than, oh, say, Las Vegas, just means the seaside South Jersey town is low-key enough for guests to feel fine with hanging out at a beach bar or sitting at the slots all day. No pressure, in other words, to do stuff. Your luck starts with Greyhound — bus fare on the dirty dog’s Lucky Streak costs no more than $50 round trip (depending on when you book), making for the most flexible of departure times, gifting you $25 worth of casino credit, and offering the necessary interval to, as the Boss would say, “put your makeup on, fix your hair up pretty.”
