Atlantic City Getaway!

Well, here is our first getaway of the year - hopefully many more to come!  So the main reason for this trip was to attend the Atlantic City International Motorcycle Show at the Showboat.  Since Atlantic City is over 2 hours away, we decided to spend the night and got a room at the Showboat.




We arrived a little after noon, checked in and went up to the room.  It was very cold so we parked and had no intentions of leaving the hotel.
















After we checked out the room and dropped off our luggage, we went back downstairs to go to the show.



It wasn't very big but there were so many bikes!








I love these..I need a Polaris in my life, LOL






And this was my favorite bike.....Love it!!








































After the show, we went to ACE (Atlantic City Eatery) in the Showboat.  We must have waited at least 20 minutes to even check in with a host/hostess.  After we were finally seated, nobody came by to ask us if we wanted water or if we were ready to order.  The service was excruciatingly slow, that after 10 minutes of waiting we just got up and walked out.

Across the hall was another burger place, Bricker's Burgers and More!  Here we sat right away, after 10 minutes the waitress took our order and after another 10-15 minutes had our meal.  Finally, we got to eat!





After we ate, we went upstairs to take a nap.  We were all tired and slept for a couple of hours.  When we woke up, we grabbed our coats and went to walk on the boardwalk.














We stopped for some pictures, checked out the stores and went in search of a Starbucks!










The closest Starbucks was closed, and the other one was too far so we grabbed Dunkin Doughnuts.





There were a few stores we wanted to visit again the next morning, weather permitting.  There was a snowstorm headed our way so we weren't sure how bad it would get.

As we walked back to the showboat, coffees in hand, it started snowing!

We got upstairs, and got ready for bed!  I was exhausted!!  I walked a bit over 16,000 steps - over 6 miles!  I was done for the night!



The next morning we peeked outside and everything was white!  Hubby woke me up at 7:30AM because he wanted to head out early to avoid major traffic.  The roads weren't great, lots of snow everywhere so we packed up and headed out.




I was grouchy!  I'm not a morning person, was still sleepy and didn't have my coffee - yea, I definitely was grouchy!

We stopped at the first rest stop and it had a Starbucks - Thank God!!  I got my coffee, some breakfast and we were back on our way home.






I don't remember much of the ride back, I think I slept most of the way - LOL
