Recently, I was looking for the perfect two day getaway. A destination that was close to home but still far enough to relax and decompress. Where could I go that was just a stone’s throw away from Colts Neck?

Atlantic City??

Aha!, reason number 105 why I love living in Monmouth County, New Jersey; the best destinations are just a short drive from home, yet far enough to feel like you are actually away from it all.

I hadn’t stayed in “AC”, as it is called, since 2010 I vaguely recalled, definitely not since 2012, before Hurricane Sandy ravaged the area, so it would be interesting to escape to Atlantic City and see how this famous casino town fared through the storm.

Taking a short, one hour and fifteen minute drive down the Parkway, we ended up at The Water Club. I can’t rave enough about this hotel. It was the perfect weekend destination. The weather was beautiful and lounging poolside mixed with the ocean breeze made this the perfect weekend getaway. Plus, the entertainment, dining and shopping didn’t disappoint either. 

In my book, this will remain as a fun day trip that will be taken again real soon.
