Atlantic City, NJ

 I am linking up with  Oh, the places I've been @ Tablescaper   and check out  Gemma's  Scenic Weekend   And Friday Postcards

These are some scenic shots from our trip to the New Jersey shore and Atlantic City. Atlantic City's boardwalk is famous from back to the days of the popular Steel Pier, a diving horse and concerts. When I was young traveling with my family we saw concerts featuring the Supremes, BJ Thomas  and do you remember the group called 5th Dimension. Atlantic City now is mostly high rise casinos and hotels. There is a pier with a large mall.


The view of Atlantic City  and a gorgeous sky from our hotel room.  The next larger building is the Resorts Hotel and Casino.


The Trump Taj Mahal Casino and hotel on the Atlantic City boardwalk. We were out on the boardwalk hoping to see the full moon.


Next door to the Trump is the Showboat hotel and Casino..



A shot of the full moon from our hotel room at Trump's Taj Mahal .



 A sunrise over the Atlantic ocean.


Since I live in Maryland I could not help but to take a shot of the sign showing Maryland Avenue and the sun rising. We use Atlantic City as a base to stay when we visit the Barnegat Wildlife Refuge and some times Cape May. 


I hope you enjoyed my travel and scenic post.  I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.

  3. Beautiful moon shot and sunset. Looks like a great place to stay and then to experience bird and wildlife in the refuge.

    Enjoy a sunny warm weekend!

  4. Beautiful photos especially of the moon and sunrise. I've never been to Atlantic City and have always found it appealing. Maybe, because I enjoy Vegas a lot.

  6. My kids love Monopoly, so they would want to go to Atlantic City just to see all the streets and locations from the game. I don't think I've been there since I was a teenager. Great moon shot!

  7. I'm betting many people who go to Atlantic City see both the sunset as they go into a casino and the sunrise as they leave. Hope the beauty is appreciated!
