Last week, my friend, F, and I made our trek to Atlantic City. It's been two years since I was in AC, so I was excited because this was another chance to experience the place and also see if the place has changed. We stayed at the Borgata and got great room rates. Borgata after all has been getting all the raves in AC. When we arrived, Borgata didn't disappoint and that I would totally stay there again. Below are some photos from the trip.

I think this is the AC Christmas tree located at the front of Trump Plaza.
There are a lot of changes in AC especially with the additions of the malls at the boardwalk. I think there's a push to make it look like Las Vegas, but I think it will take quite a while before AC can compete with Vegas. On its own, AC has the advantage of being near the beach and its boardwalk has a beauty on its own. Finding trinkets at the boardwalk shops is something I really enjoy. AC has its own beauty and that I'm glad I got this chance to see this place again.
