    So I'm going to New Jersey on Friday to see snow for the first time in my life (shocked? haha) but I was just wondering what there is to do around Atlantic City?

    A.C. in the winter? Casinos and shows. The boardwalk is too cold.

    Philly is over an hour away so, other than malls and cinemas, there isn't much.

    This thread is making me homesick :(.. I miss NJ. Are you just going to see snow? Is it even snowing there now? I would think you'd have better luck a bit further north then AC.

    Re: snow, it's still balmy here in NJ, for whatever freakish reason. High of 56, low of 45 on Friday according to the weather feature in dashboard.

    I've only been to AC once, but NJ is the shopping mall capital of the known universe. If you're meandering a bit farther north than AC, I'd recommend The Mall at Short Hills. Heck, if you're going up that far though, you might as well hit Manhattan.

    Can you get some good "ethnic" cuisine that might be more readily available here than where you hail from? We've got some excellent Indian nosh in Middlesex county.

    Yeah Short Hills is nice, and they have an Apple Store. Not only is NJ the shopping mall capitol, but also the Diner capitol, you MUST have a Taylor Ham Egg and Cheese sandwich, a NJ original.

    i was just there actually, even during the winter there are some things to do

    first, hit up the bored walk, its a great walk along the coast. atlantic city is pretty dirty and shady to be honest, but there are good things to buy. go get some fudge from Steel's fudge on the boardwalk. its like the best candy shop in the world. then get some new york style pizza and there are some nice places to buy clothes near the casinos. all of the places are having major sales and i honestly think it has something to do with the fact that only tourists can buy from the stores. downtown, i wouldnt go walking around at night. i had the best lobster at one of the resturants there, but it was pretty pricey at $58

    ive been told the real reason ppl go to jersey is the feeling you have when you finally leave the state

    Now that I got to see!!! Is that best candy store in the world run by some Belgians living in Jersey? If not, then, sorry, but it is only the best candy store in the rather limited world of Jersey.

    Why would you like to see snow in person? I think snow is well over-rated:p It has been a very warm winter in NJ/NY area, which I like (no traffic congestion because of the winter weather).

    Is there snow in Atlantic City? Thats news to me...its been crazy warm here(I life about 40mins there)



    What to do...well on the boardwalk there is this mall with a nice Apple store...and a HUEG candy store.


    Also SOMEWHERE in the city there is a hardcore video game play...its owned by some couple from Japan. They had imported games, normal games and some cool signs from N64/PS1/Saturn days.....if your a gamer worth looking for(I forget where it is, near a DQ...not that helps all that much_
