Article Teaser: Atlantic City, land of gambling, entertainment, and alcoholics was in fact originally settled by the Lenni-Lenape Indians on Absecon Island. In the 1600's the Indians were partial to the ocean and the vast amounts of game and nature found on the island. Quickly, this all changed in the late 1670's when the first Europeans and Thomas Budd came to take control of acquiring the island. Eventually, a man named Jeremiah Leeds became the first European to set up a building on the island in 1785 and his future family started the first businesses. The Leeds became the founders of the fabulous Atlantic City.

Traveling To Atlantic City Under A Tight Budget

Copyright (c) 2007-2017

Atlantic City, land of gambling, entertainment, and alcoholics was in fact originally settled by the Lenni-Lenape Indians on Absecon Island. In the 1600's the Indians were partial to the ocean and the vast amounts of game and nature found on the island. Quickly, this all changed in the late 1670's when the first Europeans and Thomas Budd came to take control of acquiring the island. Eventually, a man named Jeremiah Leeds became the first European to set up a building on the island in 1785 and his future family started the first businesses. The Leeds became the founders of the fabulous Atlantic City. Soon railroads for easier transportation to the mainland, hotels, houses, and businesses were erected in the mid-19th century. In 1921 Miss America pageants made their debut and entertainment shows for the public were blooming across the shore. Finally, the Casino Gambling Referendum was passed in 1976 and Atlantic City officially began its' transformation into the bold establishments of enjoyment it proffers today. Millions of people visit Atlantic City every year for affordable entertainment.

There are many cheap deals for taking weekend trips out to the East coast and tamer version of Vegas. Alternatives for spending less and still having fun should always be a priority in traveling. The first obligation of course is to configure the best way to travel. A typical car rental service can cost averagely between $30 and $60 per day. Keep in mind those are the cheap car rental prices. However, taking the train is a much cheaper alternative. For a round trip to Atlantic City from New York, the fee is normally priced around $68. If people take the train though, they also have to find means of transportation to get to their hotel and entertainment places. Additional cab fare can surmount up to almost the same fee as just renting a car service. Parking is also free for cars in several areas around Atlantic City sites. Another alternative for out of state travelers, is finding cheap air-fair. Spirit Airlines usually has pretty good deals and going to cheapflights.com is a good start at finding some of the best air deals.

Instead of staying at a ritzy and glamorous hotel, save money by staying at a regular inn or a cheap hotel closely located outside of the main Atlantic City attractions. Inside of Atlantic City, good deals can be found with the Sunset Inn, Fairfield Inn, Ramada Limited, El Greco Motel, and Golden East Hotel. All are conveniently priced in the $50-60 range. If travelers are willing to sleep slightly ghetto style for a few bucks cheaper, there are several hotels situated right next to the Atlantic City Airport. A Howard Johnson, Super 8 Motel, and the Econo Lodge Absecon have rates as low as $50 a night.

Once settled down, have a drink and take a stroll down the boardwalk. The area provides entertainment venues such as Hollywood Planet, Ripley's Believe it or Not, and the Hard Rock Café. The Steel Pier is closely similar to an East coast version of the Santa Monica Pier in California. The pier provides for guests' enjoyment, amusement park rides, carnival games, several souvenir stands, and food courts.

Enough Casinos glitter the boardwalk to drive a gambler insane. Bally's is known for its' high class style because they elaborately decorate with Italian marble, murals, and paintings. One of Bally's Casinos, appropriately named Park Place, has a 19th Century Hotel and a Western-themed casino town with shops, spas, and numerous restaurants. Donald Trump is another major owner in the Atlantic City casino business. Most of his casinos aim to draw in a younger crowd and decorate their buildings with Trump model billboards.

Caesar's, Harrah's, and the Showboat Casinos all draw customers in with their gaudy themes. Caesar pays tribute to ancient Rome with their style of décor. Additionally, it is the highest rolling casino in Atlantic City because there are very few limits on their betting tables. Harah's showcases a Broadway-styled theme and has an under the sea style dining area. The Showboat Casino has grown into a Mardi Gras party and includes live entertainment of Dixie bands. The Tropicana is an additional casino worth visiting because jazz legend Michael Pedecin plays on the 20th floor several times a week and the prices are relatively affordable.

If the casinos haven't convinced people to start traveling to Atlantic City yet, the shopping and marina are other sites worth visiting. Shopping can be found at The walk, The quarter at Tropicana, Main Street, Atlantic Ave, and The Boardwalk District. The Historic Gardners Basin is another great place to view over 50,000 gallons of water teeming with aquatic life and animals. Guests can also take boat rides and fish at affordable rates.

A new trend that has set people purchasing baked goods is over-priced cupcake shops. I'm seriously not joking. There are people out here in this country that would pay over three dollars for a small confectionary cupcake. Celebrities aren't the only ones that have taken a small obsession to the cupcake fad.

The image of a virtual office phone service company is integral for gaining new and retaining old clients.

Madison Square Gardens has an annual tradition of hosting the CFA IAMS Cat Championships, hosted by the Cat Fanciers' Association within the Expo Center. I had the great pleasure of accompanying a cat enthusiast this weekend to survey the kitty floor. After purchasing my over-priced cat show ticket, I circled my way around the many tower levels and found myself face to face with the ticket clinchers. Upon thrusting my $15 ticket into the hand of a stupidly smiling portly fellow . . . I quickly realized that this is going to be weird.

One of the worst and most severe manifestations of childhood social anxiety disorders is labeled as Selective Mutism disorder. Originally, fifteen years ago the disorder was called Elective Mutism because doctors figured that all children who didn't talk were either shy or in another category. Elective mutes were seen as belligerent, stubborn, and obnoxious kids who were rebelling by not talking against some effort in order to get attention.
