Atlantic City, NJ has long been considered the nightlife playground of the Northeast. A little bit Vegas, a little bit Coney Island, Atlantic has something fun for everyone from casinos, to boardwalks, to roller coasters, to flashy shows featuring dancing girls. The city was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, but the area has worked hard to revitalize the popular tourist town, and it’s on the way back to being better than ever. If you're looking for somewhere to live that has a good combination of pure entertainment and outdoor recreational activities, look no further than Atlantic City. Also, if you're interested in the hospitality industries, its one of the best places in the entire country to work and live. Forbes recently named it the #200 place in America to have a career.

Atlantic City: This is the heart of all the action packed with hotels, casinos, theaters, a boardwalk, and more. You can find real estate here, but it’s definitely the most expensive in the area. And its definitely not the place to call home if you're looking for a small neighborhood feel.

Brigantine: Brigantine is actually a suburb of Atlantic City and is its own island. Brigantine has beautiful beaches. This makes real estate here a bit pricey people have their vacation homes here. The area was hard hit by the hurricane, but they're rebuilding. Its definitely the place to be if you want something quaint and New England-y.

Ventnor City: Another beachy neighborhood in Atlantic City. Their motto is "Shorely the Best!" and the area is much more relaxed than Atlantic City. There are lots of single family homes and townhomes here, so you can feel like you really live in a suburban neighborhood.

Longport: Longport is quiet, and the neighborhood has a little more variety in terms of housing than some of Atlantic City's other areas. Its a good draw if you love water sports, with easy access to the beach.
