Known as The Entertainment Capital of the Jersey Shore,” Atlantic City, N.J., now has a new title—the Best Gambling Destination in the World.

USA Today named Atlantic City after a month-long online 10Best Reader’s Choice voting campaign. The city t ops 19 other areas including Las Vegas, Monte Carlo and Reno.

“This is great news for Atlantic City,” says CRDA Executive Director John Palmieri.  “These results affirm our continuing commitment to—and investment in—non-gaming attractions that help distinguish Atlantic City from other gaming destinations throughout the world.”

There are currently eight hotel casino gaming properties: Bally’s, Borgata, Caesars, Golden Nugget, Harrah’s, Resorts, Tropicana and Taj Mahal. Of course, the city boasts other forms of entertainment with free beaches, a plethora of restaurants, stellar meeting spaces, an aquarium and the Boardwalk.

“Atlantic City is the Triple Crown winner—a beach, a boardwalk and casino gaming,” says City of Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian. “Where else can you go in the world to get all three at once? Atlantic City is the place to be for fun in the sun while enjoying all of the casino gambling that you want.”

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
