Atlantic city gets a touch of class

With MGM’s splashy $5 billion project, Atlantic City might soon shed its image as the poor man’s Las Vegas – the travelmole reports
One couldn’t agree more – ask any tourist and they will tell you that they didn’t come to Atlantic City for

– cheesy souvenir shops and Nathan’s hot dogs
– a rundown amusement park sitting on top of a beautiful beach
– a boardwalk as crowded as Coney island
– A city bereft of fun and glamor and totally lacking in personality

MGM’s signature extravagance is sure to rejuvenate the jaded resort town and attract well-heeled northeasterners, says The Travelmole. An image-makeover campaign would help, still!
