ATLANTIC CITY
The hospitality industry at this historic seaside resort has been working to make sure the destination has something for everybody, and its hard work is paying off. World-class entertainment and nightlife, exquisite dining, and the famed Boardwalk are among the attractions for groups.


DAY 1: SUN AND KITCHEN FUN

9:00 AM 
                   
Arrange for your group to spend some time on the beach where activities include surfing, kayaking, windsurfing, and fishing. 

3:00 PM                    
Explore the world-famous Boardwalk, an American icon since 1870, with ocean views on one side and shopping on the other. Don't miss a visit to one of Atlantic City's beloved saltwater taffy shops or a spin on one of the Boardwalk's rolling chairs, introduced in the 1880s. 

6:00 PM 
                   
Don aprons and get into the kitchen at Viking Cooking School at Harrah's Resort. Attendees will chop, sautée, and then enjoy the meal. 


DAY 2: "SEA" ATLANTIC CITY

10:00 AM 
                        
The Atlantic City Aquarium, home to over 100 varieties of fish and marine animals, is located in historic Gardner's Basin. A tropical shark touch tank, moray eels, moon jellies, and seahorses abound.

1:00 PM                       
Hop aboard one of Atlantic City Cruises' vessels for a sightseeing adventure -- and possible glimpse of bottle-nosed dolphins.

5:00 PM                        
Tomatoe's is a trendy bayside restaurant in lively Margate City. The imaginative menu has a sprinkling of Mexican, Italian, and Pacific Rim dishes.


DAY 3: CUTTING EDGE

12:00 PM  
                       
One of the newest attractions in Atlantic City is the Escape Room at The Tropicana. Participants choose from three themed rooms -- the Poker Room, the Boardwalk, and the Casino Cage -- and are given tips to discover clues and solve puzzles to uncover a way to escape from their locked room before the time limit runs out.

6:00 PM                                       
Keep it cutting edge as your group enjoys dinner in Coastal Craft Kitchen & Bar, which opens in Harrah's Resort this month. The restaurant will feature modern bar food, coastal cuisine, and an expansive beer and cocktail menu. A modern, casual, coastal vibe will include free pool tables.

11:00 PM                                       
After a multimillion-dollar facelift, The Pool After Dark at Harrah's Resort has a new stage, elevated DJ booth with an LED video wall, an updated sound system, new cabanas, daybeds, and lounge furniture, along with refreshed Jacuzzis and pool.
