The boardwalk may be mildly tamer than the Strip, but Atlantic City still boasts "Las Vegas of the East Coast" status. With a vibrant nightlife and endless casinos along its Jersey shore, this flashy coastal destination draws its share of highrollers and cardsharks every year. Place your bets and see for yourself what these great Atlantic City casinos have to offer. The Trump Taj Mahal opened in 1990 after the success of the original Trump Plaza a mile down the boardwalk. The Donald's next AC project boasts (in true Trump fashion) a huge casino with 3500 slots and 200 table games. Even the lobby is impressive.
