One Day Trip

One Day Trip

My fiancé and I are taking a weekend trip to Philadelphia. Our plan is to visit Atlantic city for a day while we are there. We plan on visiting the beach and doing some shopping. Any tips on how to go about this? We want to visit the beach first and walk the boardwalk after, but I'm concerned that I won't be able to go shopping because we'll be all sandy lol. I was wondering if there are maybe some near by showers or something like that. Also, any Atlantic City tips at all for someone visiting for a day?

Showers are located in the public bath houses and outdoor showers by the lifeguard houses along the Boardwalk.. And, of course, for the price of a drink there are also seats, umbrellas and I think showers by all the beach bars.

i would agree with that. After a day in the sun and beach, you wont feel like shopping.

The only thing with shopping first is what to do with the things your purchased. If you have a car no problem stick them in the trunk, if not AND you don't want to take them to the beach and you can bring a suitcase to put your purchases in you could likely lock the suitcase up and drop it at a bell desk in one of the casino hotels and pick it up on your way home, just make sure you tip them.
