Whether you are a new or old follower of Jersey Family Fun, you will come to learn that we are all about making New Jersey more family friendly and showing you why and what about New Jersey is family friendly.
The same is true for Atlantic City. (Read our earlier posts here.) Why tucked away between the casinos and bright lights of Atlantic City are some gems that families would find quite appealing. It’s why Karen Sweitzer, A Magical Mommy, and I set about to create Family Friendly AC, an online publication to promote what is Family Friendly about Atlantic City and to inspire and be part of newer family friendly promotions for the area.
This weekend Karen and I made two huge steps in that direction. We launched Family Friendly AC. And we hosted the first overnight family blogging event Atlantic City has ever seen, called Bloggers at the Beach. It was a whirlwind weekend, we can’t wait to tell you about. From Friday night to Saturday afternoon, bloggers had their minds changed about Atlantic City when they experienced the following with their families:
- Lunch at the Harrah’s Steakhouse
- Playtime and hotel accommodations at the Harrah’s Resort and Family Fun Center
- Viewing of the Coral Reef Adventures with their families at the Tropicana Casino IMAX Theatre
- Watching dolphins from aboard the Atlantic City Cruises boat
- Lunch at Scales in Gardner’s Basin
- Petting sharks at the Ocean Life Center Aquarium
- Climbing up Lucy the Elephant
Below our guests are linking up their stories from their weekend. Take a look and enjoy reading why Atlantic City can be a great place for your family to visit. You will need to click on the blue face to be taken to the list of stories or to add one..
