Getting around in Atlantic City is actually pretty easy as it offers many forms of transportation covering a relatively small area of 15 square miles. Look for Jitney buses on Pacific Ave also known as the Strip, Rolling Chairs on the Boardwalk, Taxi's are located at every hotel and casino and you can also utilize the Trains and Buses to get into and around Atlantic City, New Jersey.
You can also get from one Boardwalk casino to another with just a short refreshing walk along the boards. The Showboat which is the north most Boardwalk hotel (until the Revel Casino opens in 2012) and the Hilton which is at the south most end are just two and a half miles apart. If you are not in the mood for a walk, then you can take one of those historic Rolling chairs that are frequently pushed up and down the boardwalk.
The interior walkway is a great way to move between some of the casinos on the Boardwalk. It is possible to move from Caesars to the Wild West and then to the Bally's without stepping outside. The same holds true for going from Showboat to Trump Taj Mahal to Resorts. The view of the ocean is a great motivation to keep you going even when the weather is none too good.
There are tourists who prefer taking a cab or Taxi. Fares are fixed so you can easily find out the fare before you reach your favorite casino. Taxis are easily available from any of the casinos or hotels.
Atlantic City has an efficient and well organized public transport. The jitney costs just $ 2.25 per trip and goes across all casinos and hotels. There are four different routines on which the jitney runs so be sure you have boarded the right one.
There are cheap scooter rental services which you can use to travel on the boardwalk. They can be used inside casinos as well as a faster way to move to your favorite location on the boardwalk. However, they are not exactly recommended on the main roadways due to the heavy traffic.
While you are here on a vacation you might as well considering getting out of that cramped and cagey hotel room and move into a large, upscale two bedroom condo with a full kitchen, laundry room and fully equipped living room. Timeshares room rentals on a daily basis are available at cheap rates; much less expensive than any hotel.
There are professionally managed rental places and the ones rented by owners. Property owners typically provide flexibility in rates and dates and direct contact. If you prefer staying in smaller towns, then this is an ideal option. Professionally managed rental properties have experienced staff and dedicated on-site help but the rates are more or less fixed.
