Casinos
For a beach town with many casinos, this is a list of my favorite casinos in Atlantic City.
The Tropicana is an enormous megaresort with over 2,000 rooms and suites spread across three towers. The rooms, which are plagued with dated decor and tube TVs, are not the highlight at this boardwalk hotel. Its Havana-inspired three-story streetscape called the Quarter is much more inviting, with an IMAX Theater, shopping, restaurants, and nightclubs. The Tropicana also draws visitors for its high-end spa, Broadway-style theater, and seasonal outdoor pool and bar -- not to mention the huge casino floor. A location right on the boardwalk and freebies such as Wi-Fi are convenient perks, but beware of long lines at check-in.

Situated on the outskirts of Atlantic City, a short drive from the Boardwalk, the four-pearl Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is an enormous resort hotel with some 2000 rooms and suites. All are spacious and have huge marble bathrooms and contemporary decor, but its the casino's myriad amenities that attract many travelers. Along with a huge casino with hundreds of table games and thousands of slot machines, there's a huge concert stadium, a big nightclub, and all sorts of bars and restaurants, including a few fine dining spots created by celebrity chefs. There's also a large, lovely spa, indoor and outdoor pools, and a spacious fitness center, though the added resort fees to cover all these amenities may turn some guests off and the location isn't the best. Travelers looking for something closer to town may want to consider a stay at Caesars Atlantic City instead.

Caesars is one of the oldest properties in Atlantic City, but extensive renovations have kept it feeling like one of the newest. It's situated along the boardwalk, steps from the beach and luxury shopping, and has a dramatic lobby with Roman-inspired columns and painted ceilings. Though the overall feel is more up-to-date than boardwalk neighbors, some of the 1,140 rooms still show wear and tear: Stick to the Centurion and Ocean Towers, where rooms have sophisticated decor, flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and spacious bathrooms. Upscale property amenities include an impressive spa, an adults-only rooftop pool with views, as well as a plush stadium-seat theater for live entertainment. Tack on gourmet restaurants, a clean casino, and decent nightlife options, and what you get is a dependable choice for adults (though families are certainly welcome). Expect fees for Wi-Fi and parking.

Food Spots
I am a huge foodie and these are some of my favorite places to eat in town!
One of my favorite breakfast spots with mom & pop vibes. Everything on the menu are at affordable prices with a good selection of classic breakfast items such as pancakes and omelets to a variety of sandwiches. The service is fairly quick and the portions are big!

The restaurant's been here more than 10 years! It has Vietnamese traditional food including pho, rice, egg noodle with varieties from chicken, pork, seafood and beef. If you are looking other than Pho or bowl of rice noodles, you can also try their fresh chicken dishes.

Who would have thought that you could have awesome pho in AC? If you are in AC, this is one of my favorite local spots right next to Maria's Luncheonette. Don't judge this place by its appearance. It seems like a hole in the wall, but it has authentic, delicious Vietnamese food. I never had to wait for a table or see it crowded, so your chance of getting a table is fairly easy unless everyone starts coming here. The servers are friendly and everything I have had here has been good. Here are some of my favorite dishes: -Pho is so good, especially the broth -Grilled pork chops with rice -Spring rolls -Vietnamese iced coffee with condensed milk -Their smoothies are made with real fruit!
