A few weeks ago I was invited to be a part of an amazing Social Media/ Social Good trip at the Jersey Shore. 40 women came together from all across the country to promote that after Superstorm Sandy our shore and beaches are still open for Summer 2013. Some of you may remember this post and this post. Where my family is located Superstorm Sandy literally passed right over top of us. We are located just about 15 minutes outside of Atlantic City. I can still remember being huddled with our entire family that night as she passed over. All 5 of us were on a queen air matress in the middle of our tiny living room and when we lost electricity at about 6pm our children could not for the life of them figure out what a “boom box” was 🙂 For me, the eye of the storm was the most surreal. For about a good 30 minutes all was peaceful, calm, and quiet and then her fury picked up just as fast and powerful as it left off. We were very lucky that we did not incur any large losses or destruction from Sandy, but others were not. That is one of the reasons why this trip took place. There were many false reports in the news about the Atlantic City boardwalk being completely destroyed, which were not true. The boardwalk is alive and very much thriving this summer, we were able to witness and see this first hand on our trip.
Our gracious host, Caesars Atlantic City, were amazing just amazing to us. Our hosts, travel arrangements, meals, room service, everything was top notch! Every person who worked at Caesar’s maintained an upbeat, gracious attitude. There was also the marble/tile shower which felt like you were in heaven, the tv in the bathroom mirror, the exquisite sheets on their beds, and their priceless views they had to offer. All of this wrapped up into one was the best little treat I could have asked for! From the moment I walked into the room I was in complete bliss. Like I said before my family and I are locals to the area and one thing I can say for sure is this: Caesars was able to show me a side of Atlantic City I.never.knew.existed!
