Beach Weekend Getaway in Atlantic City
Atlantic City is on the rise once again, after years of ups and downs. Railroads brought the original development in the late 1800s and the town was roaring by the 1920s, thanks in part to shady dealings and lax regulations regarding Prohibition. But the mid-century brought increased competition from more exotic vacation locales, newly developed Indian casinos, and a revitalized Vegas. Like the boxers who battle here, the city doesn't give up easily, though. With the opening of the Borgata in 2003, another upward climb began. Innovative new restaurants, boutique hotels and spas followed, including the glittering Revel Resort and Casino, which debuted in April 2012. Being home to beaches and the original Boardwalk certainly doesn't hurt, and as people rediscover Atlantic City, they rediscover the simple pleasures that first brought people here: endless food and games against a gorgeous ocean backdrop. –By Aaron Starmer
