Back in time

Now you can do more than visit an area when you vacation, you can revisit an era. The Resorts Atlantic City casino announced that it is undergoing a makeover and will be reborn in 1920’s style. The reason for the face lift? Oddly it’s a popular television show on HBO called Boardwalk Empire. Based on the book by Nelson Johnson, Boardwalk Empire captures the seedy underside of Atlantic City and their powerful local crime bosses.  I saw a couple of episodes myself and have to admit the show and the time period in which it’s set are fascinating. The 20’s sizzled with prohibition and scandal.  It spawned the speakeasy which has made a huge comeback in the past few years.  So, what more perfect model could there be for a casino?  I have to say that I’m intrigued by the idea of going back in time.  May have to plan a trip to Atlantic City.
