I just traveled with Keiko to Atlantic City to check out the brightly lit, full-bodied city I’ve always heard so much about, but never seen - Atlantic City, New Jersey. It was part of a sponsored trip, provided by SocialStars by Crowdtap, and it was an absolute blast! In the spirit of the city, #DOAC.

We stayed in the beautiful Harrah’s Resort Hotel and found ourselves asking directions around the place because of its size. It was fun for us, too, because we don’t gamble; so we just found our favorite slot machines and tried to hold on, until it broke our twenties into pennies.
While we were there, we ate at some great restaurants, like Robert’s Steak House, inside the Trump Taj Mahal and Distrito Cantina, inside Revel Resorts. Not to mention the freaking amazing carnival food at Steel Pier - Oreo Funnel Cakes and Crabby Fries, for the win.
One of the most amazing sights there was the Sand Sculpting World Cup, held next to Steel Pier. Sand Sculptors from all over the world came to that spot to create some incredible sculptures out of sand! My favorites were from an Indian gentleman and a couple of Russian gents. Afterwards, Keiko and I went and played some games on Steel pier, where I destroyed the Hammer Slam and won my lady her prize - a smiling penguin.
Keiko and I were not the only people to go on this great trip. When we arrived, we got to meet Martha and Jack from the food blog A Family Feast - a husband/wife team from Boston, that cook and photograph great, accessible recipes for people to try out. It wouldn’t have been the same without them there.
I can say with certainty, that it was such a blast to be a part of this trip, and I look forward to the next time I can get out and #DOAC!
