Atlantic City - Sorry....

Trying to stay positive...but it's almost impossible when going to Atlantic City... the armpit of NJ! I'm there twice a year for conventions...no place is more depressing, disgusting, dirty, and dismal ...at every level. I'm amazed people will actually pay to go there. I don't "get" gambling. I've been told they have "no smoking" in the casino's (which you HAVE to walk through to go any and every place)...but there are smoking sections and let's face it, the smoke and that smell travels.
It does not get much worse than this!
So, I'll put on my "big girl pants" and make the best of it...happy to re-unite with some fun work colleagues ~ but that's about it, can't wait for Friday - I'm home and the start of a long holiday weekend!!!

I have memories of my grandmother telling me how beautiful the Atlantic City boardwalk was... nice to see this old photo...what happened??

I'm with you! I feel the same way about Vegas.....yuck yuck yuck! I just don't get the draw to these places! My Mom loves them and her sister too...must be the Irish in them...love to gamble!

Susan I just had to chuckle when I read this post. I too am a part of conventions and I feel the same about Las Vegas as you feel about Atlantic City. This year we are going to Chicago so I'm looking forward to that.
