Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Really enjoyed Black Friday shopping
    Wherever you want they have great sales. Also, if you go to the office to give you special coupons that you can use in all of the stores it was great. Had a lot of fun. Got a lot of Christmas presents for family and friends

    It is definitely worth the climb up to the top of the lighthouse. The worker up there was super friendly and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The view is great and the history that you will learn from all of the exhibits is wonderful.

    We tend to come here whenever we are in Atlantic City.
    Beautiful, expressive monument continues to whisper the anti-war message while commemorating the Heros who fought for freedom and against communism.

    I would have given 5 stars but once again they were turning people away because of being full. I was there 3 times this year and it was always the same. Plus, a warning that they might all take a dinner break at the same time.

    This place has an amazing view and convenient parking. You can come for a stroll to enjoy the views, have a mason jar drink at Back Bay Restaurant or breakfast at Gilchrist. Easy access to boats and daily charters. The Atlantic City Aquarium is housed in this corner but unfortunately they are closed at the moment.

    Excellent small batch spirits in a cozy, quiet spot with a very friendly and accommodating staff. Mortimer, the bartender, is an artist of bartenders. Well worth a stop while in AC. We enjoyed our visit and even the sarcasm!

    I think that for the most part this memorial is respectful. I like that they included an artifact from the Twin Towers, a statue of a German Shepherd, and a wreath as well as the statues of a fireman and policeman. But there are four framed pictures at the feet of one of the statues. The frames are cracked and the photos are wet. I don't know if the photos are part of the original memorial. But I think the photos should be put somewhere that is protected.

    We spent some time at the African American museum. They had a lot of interesting exhibits and displays. The staff was very nice. I wish it was bigger.

    We always stop by the fountain before we leave every visit. The park is quite lovely and boasts an antique fountain with a beautiful light show. This year was the first time in a long time we went during the day, and it was lovely aside from the bums sleeping on the benches.
