A 2 night trip July 31-August 2. First let me say that we have never been to AC during the summer, not liking crowds. And we are NOT sun/beach people. DH is from Sweden. He is so fair that he can get a sunburn at night.haha. I just don’t like hot, humid. Off season suits us. But looking for a break and wanting to check out Hard Rock, so off we go.
Part 1 is about our bus trip from NYC to AC, so you can skip to part 2, if you drive. We started taking Greyhound after Academy bailed out. At first it was fine, lots of options, but the last few trips started going from bad to worse. Late buses, buses that never showed. Then the day before we left, the news ran a story about people being stranded at the Port Authority overnight. No Greyhound drivers. We decided we had had enough and would try NJ Transit. Wow! Night and day. No crowds, on time, clean buses. You don’t get the $25 casino bonus and you go to the bus station, but overall it was just so nice not to worry if you were going to get to AC or get home. We got our tickets, went to the gate early, but no one got on line until about 15 minutes before departure. Bus showed up, we board, not crowded, leave exactly on time. What a concept! Something that works. OK, it was only one trip, but hopefully that is how it works.
