Atlantic City Reviews

41 reviews
All Categories
It's an interesting experience to grow up in Atlantic City. It's nice to wake up and smell the salt from the ocean or spend the afternoon walking down the famous Boardwalk. Not a lot of kids can say that they got to see the Miss America pageant or the annual airshow on the beach. I love the small-knit community we have in Atlantic City where everyone knows almost everyone. However, due to extreme budget cuts and the city being neglected in the over-spending America, casinos are running out of business, the city has no money, and the community is falling into ruins. It would be a sad sight to see the city become a ghost town. In addition, the city is also known how famously dangerous it is whether it be a gun fight or someone getting jumped at night. Even so, this city will always be my hometown and I will always remember when it was at its height of glory.
Review Atlantic City
I believe that the city is a wonderful place with many opportunities that arise at every corner. Being that their are many casinos and businesses arounf the area, there is always room for growth and employement. Not only that, but because it is a city that is always bustling and alive, there is always something to do there. Whether it be hitting one of the five major clubs that the city provides or going to a 24/7 bars. I love that I grew up in this area and will always treasure the experiences and skills that I have gained from living there.
Atlantic City needs more amusement and family orientated entertainment. I love that everything is accessible like shopping and eating at a variety of restaurants and pubs. The boardwalk and beaches are great for daily walks to relax your mind and meet new people!
