    Things to help make your trip the best.....

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: When you are in the casinos, always keep your pocketbook in your lap. As with any place, being careful, not careless, is always the smart thing to do.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring a sweater even in the summer, the ocean keeps us 10 degrees cooler than inland. Also, avoid dark clothing in the months of June and August. We have a biting fly called a Greenhead (can you guess why?) that really hurts when it bites.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Always bring sunscreen, and don't forget that the humidity here can be killer if you aren't used to it. Some of the newer venues in the city require you to be dressed nicely in order to enter, which means no jeans or sneakers, but you don't have to wear a suit to fit in.

    Photo Equipment: We have many fine examples of architecture, not just casinos and many nature areas to get excellent pictures of. Our birding areas are second to none. Don't forget some really amazing sunrises and sunsets too!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There are campgrounds located a few miles outside the city if you wish to camp. We have many parks to visit. The beach in AC is free, unlike the surrounding citys, so bring the cooler, your towel and umbrella and enjoy.

    Miscellaneous: There are lifeguards on our beaches until 5 pm. for your safety. Please don't swim alone here, the rip tides can be dangerous unless you know what to do.

    A few items for a weekend getaway

    by Gypsystravels Updated Jul 23, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: A small carry bag or roller board is all you really need unless you plan on spending weeks on end here. We usually spend a night or two and everything we take will fit in a small rollerboard.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Depending on the season, but during the summer you can enjoy casual wear like summer dresses, shorts, skirts and tank tops for women and men usually wear jeans, khakis or shorts. Flips or low heeled sandals for walking on the boardwalk. Evening definitely wear something dressy, nice dresses or jeans with a pretty dressy top and heels for women, slacks or dressy jeans and dress shirts for men.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I always carry my own toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, bath wash, bath cloth, toothpaste, body and moisturizer, contact lens solution, contact lenses, glasses, perfume, deodarant and a few other items.

    Photo Equipment: My camera and recorder

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: My bathing suit, flip flops, beach bag, beach towel, suncreen

    Miscellaneous: It can get chilly at night during the summer and the casinos always have their air conditioning blasting, so a jacket or sweater, shawl, shrug or pashmina
