Hi from Atlantic City. We came down here for a couple of nights before the Labor Day long weekend. It is about 125 miles (200 km) down the Jersey Shore, but takes about 3 hrs each way. It has lots of run down casinos and is very tacky but we stayed at the brand new $2.6BN Revel Casino (top pic), which only opened in April - and is going broke. It has a great indoor/outdoor pool that Xavi loved. The weather was great (hot & sunny 30-plus every day). We also went for a drive down the coast towards Cape May. Definitely not a patch on the NSW coast, but did have a summer holidays feel.
