The most convenient airport for air travelers is Atlantic City International Airport, located in Egg Harbor Township, approximately 9 miles northwest of the city. Spirit Airlines is the only carrier that offers commercial flights directly into this airport. It will make sense for some travelers to fly into Philadelphia International Airport, located about an hour away from Atlantic City. If you do fly into Atlantic City, taxi service and shuttle service by Atlantic City Jitney can get you to your hotel. An airport shuttle bus takes passengers to the Egg Harbor City Rail Station, which provides service to the Atlantic City Line. This line will also take you from Philadelphia International Airport to the Atlantic City Rail Terminal.
Atlantic City experiences four full seasons. Summers are warm and humid, with a daily average temperature of around 75°F. Winters are chilly, with average daily temperatures around 48°F. The main tourist attraction is gambling. Visitors also enjoy the beach and boardwalk, the water show at the Pier Shops at Caesars, the Atlantic City Aquarium, the Monopoly Monument and the many Atlantic City shows.
Atlantic City caters to the tourism industry, offering entertainment for adults centered around the casinos and family entertainment centered around the beach and boardwalk. It is one of the most popular destinations on the east coast of the United States for domestic and international travelers. Orbitz.com can be your travel planner to help you book your flights to Atlantic City.
Atlantic City enjoys all four seasons, though its climate is mild most of the year. Ray-Bans and sunscreen come out around Memorial Day weekend, which means that resorts tend to run discounted specials in the preceding off-season months of April and May to lure visitors. Despite its seashore, the city isn't known for amazing outdoor events; expect indoor casinos and concert venues to be the main attraction. Also note that the beach is fairly narrow for sunbathers, and many locals prefer other nearby towns for roomier stretches of sand.
August is the least desirable month to visit, unless you like hot, muggy weather. Average highs hover around the mid-90, and the humidity means that wet clothing never fully dries. That said, all of the indoor complexes are well air-conditioned. Summer’s warmth lingers well into autumn, with breezy, pleasant days, excellent for hunting smooth, pastel pebbles on the beach.
Temperatures do dip below freezing in December or January, but the AC rarely sees snow. The winter is an ideal time to take advantage of the city’s recently renovated concert and performance venues that feature all-star shows and ticket prices much cheaper than New York City’s. Recent music performers include The Killers, Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, Madonna, Rufus Wainwright, and Dolly Parton—to give you a sense of the variety of styles. In the winter, you can typically stay at a hotel for a third off summer prices, except around holidays, such as Valentine's Day, when business from local drive-up visitors causes room rates to spike.
