When you have to take a gamble on your vacations, you better know what your odds are of hitting the jackpot. If the choice is between Las Vegas and Atlantic City, both are viable options for card sharks and those who want to play the slots. Sin City may be the epitome of a gambler’s paradise thanks to endless casinos and 24/7-nightlife, but Atlantic City rules the East Coast, with a more laid-back feel and an easy-to-get-to location. Whether you want to stroll the Strip or take to the boardwalk, these lucky locales each have a distinct approach to pleasing their clientele. So which would you choose? Take a look at the options below and then enter your answer in the comments section.
Option 1: Getting Your Sin On in Las Vegas
The MGM Grand is one of the Vegas’ most iconic hotels, sitting in the heart of the Strip, and offering not only dining from celeb chefs but also tons to do on-site before you head to the giant casino. The hotel even boasts one of the best pool scenes in the city at Wet Republic, and, after a recent major overhaul, the hotel got even more grand.
Option 2: A Low-Key but Lively Stay in Atlantic City
Atlantic City may have had its heyday in the 1920s thanks to Prohibition-era bootleggers, but its mega-resorts and casinos (almost) compete with the best Las Vegas has to offer (with at least lower prices), and the Caesars AC-outpost just goes to show it. The resort is one of the city’s oldest, sitting along the boardwalk and boasting some the city’s best restaurant and nightlife options. And even as one the best resorts in the city, Caesars doesn’t force guests to sacrifice personal attention or any destination luxuries for a good time.
