20 great getaways at the Tropicana

13 June 2008

ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Record high gas prices don't have to keep you from having a great vacation this summer. Studies show that 50 million people live within a 300 mile radius of Atlantic City. Lucky enough, the average gas powered car can travel 300 miles on one full tank of gas. Putting those two facts together, the following is a list of 20 fun-filled getaways that are just a single fill-up away to spend the day or stay overnight at the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

1. Beach Bummin' -- Hit the road for a day at the Atlantic City Beach under a Tropicana cabana. When the sun goes down, win your share of "clams" playing in Atlantic City's "Luckiest Casino," voted by readers of Casino Player magazine.

2. Feelin' Groovy -- Soak up the 70's vibe of the Tropicana's Dancin' Queen production in the Tropicana Theater, then bust your own moves at Providence Night Club.

3. Girl Stuff -- Shop 'til you drop at The Quarter, featuring 25 shops, then let your imagination run wild with Mantasm, the Male Revue at Planet Rose Karaoke Bar.

4. Friendly Feast -- Grab 12 of your closest friends and dine at the exclusive Chef's Table, located right in the middle of the kitchen at Il Verdi.

5. Movies & Martinis -- Get the big picture with a thrilling IMAX movie, followed by dinner at Carmine's, and enjoy some of the most creative martinis ever mixed at Firewaters Beer & Martini Bar. Those with a sweet tooth will not want to miss the Snickers Martini.

7. Say Spaaaaaa - Rest and relax with a signature spa treatment at bluemercury apothecary & resort spa, then revitalize your style with help from the experts at the Tropicana Salon. Once you're looking and feeling great, it's time for a steak dinner prepared to perfection at The Palm Restaurant.

15. Pool Party -- The Splash Pool Deck and Lounge is the place to be, and be seen, all summer long in Atlantic City. Offering a great view of the beach and boardwalk, you can enjoy all the sun you want. Then, retreat to your cool comfort of your Tropicana room, just steps away.
