When You Give a Girlfriend a Getaway

This time last year, Jersey Love was in full swing. An enthusiastic group of women from all over the country descended upon Atlantic City, intending to show the world that the region was back and open for business after the wrath of Hurricane Sandy. Together we saw the just what the shore had endured during that storm, and the damage to homes and property. Yet we also had the luxury of experiencing the gaming and resort areas that were ready to bring tourism back to the region. And as a group, we shared a bond that will forever link us together.

When Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City came calling this year, it was an opportunity not to be passed up. These folks just get it. They understand what makes their guests tick. They offer the relaxation, the nightlife, the food, and so much more. They know that a girlfriend getaway can mean a time to party, or time to simply grow the bond of friendship.

During our stay, we experienced a delightful time at the Viking Cooking School, the relaxation of the indoor pool, the fabulous food at Dos Caminos, and the lure of The Pool After Dark nightclub.

As this social good blogger happily notes, Harrah’s is happy to provide the Atlantic City experiencewhile also seeking environmentally friendly alternatives. Especially after Hurricane Sandy, they recognize the invaluable importance of sustainable hospitality. I will be writing more on those environmental efforts soon. For now, enjoy the some of our experience, the pool at Harrah’s!

Join us next time, won’t you? We have lots in store!
