With over 20 acres of space spread across Atlantic City’s world-famous boardwalk, Ocean Casino Resort is truly a sight to see. With gorgeous open-air courtyards, a plethora of diverse dining spots, and endless gaming action, there’s certainly plenty to explore.

With so much to do, in fact, one could get lost if they don’t make a plan or know where they’re going. For some, that’s part of the excitement—others, however, want an informed perspective to make the most of their experience.

There’s no one who knows Ocean Casino Resort better than our valued employees. So, to give guests the inside scoop, we asked our team about their favorite things in the area. We polled colleagues from every department with seven quick questions about our facilities and, here, we’re sharing the results.
