Destination Diaries

From NYC To AC... In Style

By Angela Ash

 I think that one of the most popular getaways from the Big Apple is to Atlantic City.  There is just something about skipping away for a weekend to hit the slots, walk the infamous Boardwalk, or just relax by the pool.  Atlantic City has even become more popular with HBO's hit series, "Boardwalk Empire".

The idea of a getaway to the gambler's paradise seems like a fantastic idea... but how will you get there?  There are a few ideas for transportation from New York City, but you have probably heard the saying that "it's all about the journey", so make sure that you choose wisely.  Even if you are with a car in the city, the trip may often run into traffic, and a lot of tolls.  I would, hands down, take a bus... but not just any bus.

Greyhound's Lucky Streak departs conveniently from the Port Authority Bus Terminal, who recently erected a statue out front in tribute to the character Ralph Kramden from The Honeymooners.  I stated that this is just not any bus, and this is correct.  This is one great way to travel.  Not only are the seats comfortable and roomy, but there's a lot of space to stretch out your legs.  Free Wi-Fi is available, as well as outlets to keep all of your devices powered. This makes the trip to AC a breeze.

Besides the already low price, the great deals do not stop there.  When you arrive at the casino of your choice, you will be presented with free play to use at that property.  And don't worry about doing the guesswork as to your departure time, because the tickets are roundtrip and open-ended, meaning you can check the schedule and leave when it is convenient for you.  With so many stops and pick up locations, the possibilities are endless!
