Planning a summer getaway with your best girlfriends? With luxurious accommodations, top-notch shopping areas, and indulgent spas, consider Atlantic City your dream girls-only getaway destination. Here’s your handy guide on how to DO AC right with your favorite ladies by your side.
With so many recent renovations and upgrades, Atlantic City's resorts are more than accommodating for a proper girls’ getaway. If you and your ladies plan on partying, book a stay at Harrah’s Atlantic City where you can dance the night away at The Pool After Dark. A room in the hotel’s Bayview Tower is especially exciting thanks to its Instagram-worthy bay views. If spending time at the beach is top priority, then Resorts Casino Hotel’s Ocean Tower is perfect for you. Rooms here have easy access to the pool, sun deck, beach, and Boardwalk. Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City is best for food lovers; in addition to lounging in the hotel’s chic new Havana Tower rooms, you can spend your time indulging in seafood at FIN, northern Italian fare at Il Verdi, upscale Chinese dishes at Golden Dynasty, or Cuban food and rum at Cuba Libre. Pro tip: Be sure to look out for exclusive deals when you're traveling during the week, so you can make the most of your getaway!
No girls’ getaway is complete without a bit of retail therapy. Luckily, there is no shortage of shopping spots here. Start by heading to The Quarter at Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City for everything from wine and cigars to clothing and jewelry. Follow that session with a stop at Tanger Outlets The Walk, where you can pop into new shops like Lids, Polo Ralph Lauren Children’s Factory, and Cameo Water Wear. If you and your girlfriends are in the mood to splurge a little more, a stop at The Playground on the AC Boardwalk is another must. Here, you'll find luxury favorites like Burberry, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Tiffany & Co., as well as a handful of new seasonal pop-up shops. Wherever your shopping trip takes you, don’t leave the Boardwalk before stopping by Jersey Devil Surf Shop at Resorts Casino Hotel for all of your beach essentials including surfboards, bikinis, and beach chairs.
After a full day of shopping, you and your girls deserve a little R&R. Perched on the 32nd floor of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Immersion Spa at The Water Club Hotel at Borgata is a great place to unwind with a facial, body wrap, scrub, or massage all while taking in stunning water views. Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Atlantic City is another one of AC’s most serene havens. Here, you can enjoy a Roman bath, a chakra balancing treatment, or a Vichy shower. Still, you can't go wrong with a poolside cabana massage at Red Door Spa at Harrah's Atlantic City, or a spray tan session at Golden Nugget Beauty Salon to achieve that enviable summer glow. But, if you and your friends rather lounge and chat, head to The Pool & Spa at Bally’s where you can all relax together at the dreamy indoor pool area complete with seven mosaic-tiled whirlpools, bubbling fountains, and lush exotic greenery—it doesn't get better than that.
