Atlantic City’s posh and glitzy casinos have turned this summer beach resort into a year-round attraction and many gay people number among the millions who travel here each year to sample the star-studded shows and try their luck on the gaming floors.
The beaches are still wide and white. Few resorts can boast fine, sandy beaches within feet of top-flight entertainment and luxury hotels and casinos. Near the major casinos, lesbian and gays will find a comfortable and well-equipped hotel, as well as friendly restaurants and bars that either are lesbian/gay-owned or welcome a lesbian and gay clientele.
