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.”

Washington D.C.’s up-and-coming Capitol Riverfront neighborhood is the ideal backdrop for Thompson Hotels’ new 225-room property set to open this winter. Thompson Washington D.C. will flaunt 7,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space with sweeping floor-to-ceiling views.

 

Pestana Hotel Group has announced that it will be opening its first property in New York. The new hotel, Pestana Park Avenue, is located at 23 E. 39th St. between Park and Madison avenues and within walking distance from Grand Central Terminal, the United Nations Headquarters, Bryant Park, Fifth Avenue and many more attractions.

 

Situated in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania is Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. Despite being just an hour and half from Pittsburgh and 40 minutes from Morgantown airport, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort can be found nestled in the pastoral countryside, surrounded by expansive landscapes of mountains, forests and waterfalls.
