The Jersey Shore / Atlantic City

Probably the top attraction of this state, touristically speaking, is its summer shore scene, alternately bucolic and honky-tonk. Here we talk about the variegated charms of spots like Atlantic City, the Wildwoods, Ocean City, and Cape May. More info: (Atlantic City),,,,,,,,,,,,,

  • Interesting item I caught this morning, posted in yesterday's Apparently they've finally caught on in Atlantic City, NJ that we're "among the most lucrative forms of tourism," so suddenly they're launching a humongo GLBT marketing program, bringing Lance Bass and Jai Rodriguez down to host parties (starting with a big "Out in Atlantic City" bash in late September), and yadda yadda.

    Oh well -- whatever it takes, right?

  • I was interested to find out that just this past March, Atlantic City followed the lead of a lot of other U.S. cities in starting a "Restaurant Week" (, when dozens of restos -- even fancy-schmancy joints, in the case of AC, like Buddakan, The Reserve, and La Fontana -- offer low-cost prix-fixe menus (this year it was $15.09 per person at lunch and $33.09 at dinner). The dates for 2010 are February 28-March 6, and if this year is any indication, many of the restaurants will probably extend it an extra week. I've done this kind of thing in several cities, and it's great.
