No trip to Atlantic City would be complete without at least a little shopping. You may want to visit some of the many shops, boutiques, gift shops, and restaurants along the boardwalk to find one or two “oh-so-good” deals. If shopping is not your thing, consider checking out the many dining options in Atlantic City, some with outdoor patios and fantastic food. Several dining options are open early in the morning and close late at night, making it easy to fit in a little shopping as you enjoy some truly unique cuisine.
The Aquarium at the Bay is a great place to go if you are looking for a bit of “people watching” along the coast. You can watch from the comfort of your snorkel or float on your own pool. This is definitely one of the better dining options in Atlantic City for an “in your face” experience. The Aquarium also has an aquarium house and dining area. If you have children along, the Aquarium makes a great location for pampering with clowns and water toys.
The Aquarium is only one of several great dining options in Atlantic City for the New Year. Other casinos have long been located on the boardwalk as well, so you can always find something to do in town. Check out the various casinos near the Boardwalk for fine dining, gambling, and even shopping, though you may prefer to simply party on the New Year’s Eve right on the boardwalk itself.
One of the most popular things to do on the New Year’s Eve in Atlantic City, besides enjoying the live music performances by local favorites and the featured act, is attending the Shrimp Festival. It is held annually and features live shrimp presentations by some of the best chefs in New Jersey. Along with the live entertainment, this is also a great time to catch up with some locals and take in the culture of the town. The Shrimp Festival has been going for more than 30 years, and you will definitely want to attend this year’s grand opening weekend.
