The facility is interesting. The group had about 15 people. It is very kid friendly (the kids' enthusiasm was part of the fun). I was hoping to get better access to the windmills- no go.

Thanks for joining us for one of the summer open house tours! We appreciate your feedback will use it to tweak our next season of “open house” tours.

The tour is essentially a guided walk around fueled by Q&A from the group. Individuals and couples would benefit from picking a time that would not bundle you in with a school group. We were with another 2 families and that worked out well. Definitely a pleasant diversion from the casino gig.

Atlantic County really has it together when it comes to renewable resourcing. It could be because of casino investments or wonderfully innovative pro-active managers but AC should be a model for the nation.
