Day Trip

I'm coming there for a day trip on march 9th. Will be spending most of my time in casino will be on the boardwalk. What is the best casino to go too. And are there any good shows are other things to do?

They don't really have shows during the day. But, you won't need them. If this is the first time you are going, you have plenty to see. I would start out with Caesars...right smack in the middle of the Boardwalk and close to a lot of other casinos. Right across from Caesars, on the Boardwalk--are the Pier Shops, if you like shopping and, of course, the ocean. Facing the ocean, to Caesars left is Ballys (Wild Wild West entrance is less than a minute's walk...mid-way entrance is probably five minutes). Beyond that, if you want to go that far (probably a mile and a half?) is Resorts, Trump Taj Mahal, Showboat and the ever-argument inducing Revel. To the right of Caesars is (also a minute's walk) Trump Plaze and maybe a 10-15 minute walk to the Tropicana and a little further, the AtlanticClub (or whatever they are calling it). Casino hopping and just getting used the place will take up your time, for sure. Hope you have a great trip!

I also agree with starting out at Caesar's...it's a central location on the boardwalk. From there, you have many casinos to walk to. You can easily spend the day just casino hopping and checking out the properties.

Another Vote with starting your day at Caesar's (and the pier shops)....

There is an hourly water & light show at the end of The Pier www.thepiershopsatcaesars.com/the-water-show and afterwards, you can stop by Boardwalk Favorites on FL2 for some hot nuts, or It'Sugar on FL1 to see a recreation of Lucy in jellybeans www.flickr.com/photos/iirraa/178282074/
