When people think of gambling in the United States, they will automatically think of Las Vegas. They are right to do so as Las Vegas has got to be the most famous gambling strip in the whole world. However, there are other great places to gamble in the United States and Atlantic City in New Jersey just so happens to be one of those places. If you are into your gambling, then you will be happy to hear that the Golden Splendor will pay a visit to Atlantic City.
We know that going to Atlantic City for an hour or two would be rather pointless, especially if you are the type of person that likes to have a bit of a gamble. Therefore, we will arrive at our destination in the morning and we will not leave for our next destination until the following morning, meaning that you have basically a full day to check out the brick and mortar casinos that are on offer. If Lady Luck is on your side, you might even return to the train the following morning with a beaming smile on your face. However, if luck does not seem to be going your way, we recommend that you stop as the last thing that we want is to have sad passengers.
What if you do not like to gamble though? Well, if you are not a keen gambler, then you will be happy to hear that there are plenty of other things that you can do to keep yourself entertained while visiting Atlantic City. For example, you can take a stroll along the Atlantic City Boardwalk, you can visit the Korean War Memorial, do a bit of shopping in the Kennedy Plaza, go fishing, or hire a bike and go for a cycle through some spectacular scenery.
In short, there is something for everyone in this great city, which is why we have added it to our list of destinations, and we do not see ourselves removing it anytime soon.
