See:
Catch summer blockbusters like Shrek Forever After, Toy Story 3 and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at the IMAX Theatre at Tropicana (Tropicana, 2831 Boardwalk, 609-340-4000), outfi tted with an eightstory screen and digital surround sound. Many of the movies are screened in IMAX 3D to add to the sensory experience.

Eat:
It’s easy to love Izakaya (Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, One Borgata Way, 609-317-1000), with its sexy interior, choice sushi and DJ beats to set the mood. Billed as a Japanese gastropub, the restaurant and bar bubbles with life from happy hour until last call. Monday nights draw an especially large crowd that pre-games for a late night at Mur.mur with $7 specialty drinks and a select menu of light bites starting at 5 PM.

Sail:
Learn to navigate the choppy waters of the Atlantic Ocean (and even spot a dolphin or two) with a private lesson from captain Ken Wescoat of Summer Breeze Sailing Charters (609-652-8743; summerbreezesailingcharters.com). Then again, you could leave the driving to him and enjoy a sunset sail with a few friends and a bottle of white.
