Atlantic City, New Jersey

When we went to Sugar Factory last week, we realized we had to walk through the 
to get to 
Sugar Factory.
The music was so loud everywhere, but I really enjoyed all of the memorabilia!

The Beatles

Elvis Presley's Rolls Royce

This guitar was on the ceiling.


Light fixtures in Hard Rock

The flowers in Hard Rock were so beautiful,
they all had yellow roses in them.

I was hoping the hotels would be decorated for Christmas, they weren't.
We popped over to 
Once you pay for valet parking, you can valet at any one of the casino's,
I thought that was a deal.

The Borgata is filled with these crazy light fixtures.

This is a "Living Wall"

The Borgata was so crowded, my anxiety was through the roof.
I don't even know if they had parked our car yet, when we decided to leave.
I know the Christmas decorations are really beautiful here,
if we go back,
perhaps going back early in the day would be better, and the casino's would be much less crowded.

I don't think I have ever been inside any of the AC casinos.

Hello, the casinos do a job beautiful decorating the hotels and casinos. The Borgata's hand blown glass chandelier looks like a Chihuly. Hubby and I stayed overnight at the Hard Rock, it was nice. We like staying in Atlantic City just to go to the Edwin Forsythe Wildlife refuge, it is close by. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!

Such a cool place! Have a lovely week☺

Oh my goodness - those suits! It's hard to remember a time where that is what a rock band might wear. I also love the guitars - and the original of John Lennon's lyrics!!! Be still my heart.

Great photographs here … and what a choice from guitars to great lighting to wonderful flowers … we are spoilt for choice.
Enjoy your week.

All the best Jan

Beautiful photos! Lots to see at the Hard Rock. I don’t like crowds either!

Gotta confess, not a fan of casinos or any loud noisy places. (This is probably your only travel post ever that I didn’t want to put on my wish list. ). Reminds me of a sign I saw in a restaurant we went into once by accident. It said “if the musics too loud, you’re too old.” I was.

There is lots of beauty there, but I would be like you. I don't like having so many people around, especially if I want to get pictures.

Wow I don't think I have been to a hard rock that big before, or at least had that much memorabilia but maybe it's because they were crowded and we just went and sat down and ate. They may not have been ready for Christmas but I did love the way the decorated for the fall! I understand the overwhelming when there is just too many people, like you said it would probably be better during the week and earlier.

wow, that looks like a fun place to visit. I loved the memorabilia. We lived in Las Vegas for 7 years. We did go down on the strip often but I do know how you feel in a crowded Casino.
You are a dear friend, and I have missed reading about all your adventures. My life has been crazy. I have blogged for almost 10 years and now I haven't done one for almost 3 months. I'm not sure the direction I will take, but I won't forget to drop by and read as many of your posts as I can. You are a favorite and I truly do love and care about you.
Have a sweet Thanksgiving! Blessings and hugs for you and your family!

Very nice pictures!
A great place to see!

That is sight overload!! So many things and so many colors and all shinning. Wow!

Sue (this n that) said...

Its certainly on a huge scale! Can understand how you feel when there's so many people packed into an area but you got some great shots and kept those parking valets on their toes ;D) xx

Debbie - I am not a big fan of Hard Rock Café with its overly-commercialized nature, but their collections are always fascinating to view. This one is certainly no exception. I didn't know the history behind the Beatles' suits, but it doesn't surprise me that the legions of girls were in love with the "sharp-dressed men". Lovely, lovely photos! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

I've never been to a Hard Rock (cafe or hotel). It looks like they have a lot of really cool stuff to look at. I would enjoy the music memorabilia, but not the crowds.
