We were really pleasantly surprised when we went there on a Saturday night. The Christmas tree light and music show that plays continually on the lake was so neat to watch. Beautiful. The whole shopping village looks like something straight out of Currier and Ives. I had to keep telling myself that we were in New Jersey. What a magical experience that is sure to get anyone in the mood for Christmas. People were walking about, bundled up with their kids and walking their dogs, with holiday music piped from outdoor speakers throughout. There was a merry-go-round and a train ride for kids. The shops looked so fun and cute and interesting to go in and explore. They had the crafty, country, homemade feel to them. A really special place. We went back during the day to shop. There were so many things that were hard to resist. Of course, I bought a large wooden mantle clock from Mrs. Duff's Gift Shoppe and we enjoyed coffee and cookies inside the Smithville Bakery. We would love to return the next time we visit Atlantic City.
