Atlantic City Isn't Going Anywhere

Posted on Feb 9, 2016 in Casino Marketing Comments

For a city that gets its fair share of bad press, Atlantic City businesses and developers never stop working to build a city where everyone wants to go for entertainment and relaxation. The efforts are paying off, and according to a local real estate company, Atlantic City is proving that it's here to stay.

Entertainment is Booming

Contrary to what some may believe, gaming is alive and well in Atlantic City. Of the eight local casinos, seven reported increases at the close of 2014 – not to mention the major expansions planned for The Borgata and Resorts Casino Hotel. Then there's the restaurant scene that includes five-star dining options from celebrity chefs such as Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, and Gordon Ramsay, alongside Atlantic City favorites for cheese steak and pizza on the Boardwalk.

Economic Stability

Casinos and restaurants aren't the only businesses thriving in Atlantic City. Bass Pro Shop at the Walk is scheduled to open this spring, and Stockton College's Island Campus will open for classes this fall. The housing market is making a comeback too, with more than 500 new units due to break ground in the spring. There's also rumors of a 57-story indoor-outdoor water park at the site of the old Revel Casino.

Looking to the Future

This is only the beginning of what we can expect from Atlantic City in 2015 and into the future. With more than $1 Billion in new developments planned for the future, Atlantic City will continue to be a world-class destination.
