How is it?

We are going to vacationing in Brigantine and throught about driving over the AC for an afternoon, maybe eat at Margaritaville and check out the pier. I’m hearing that it might not be a good idea with high crime rates. Anyone local know how things are? Are we safe to leave our car in a paid parking lot? Are we safe walking around? TIA

Though it may be a little longer I would take the tunnel while going from Brigantine to Resorts. It will drop you off onto Mississippi Ave. take that to Pacfic Ave make a left and then a right onto North Carolina Ave to Resorts. Some of the streets surface streets between Brigantine and Resorts are not the best neighborhoods especially if you’re unfamiliar with the City. This route is much safer but like I said a little longer.

A nice place to have breakfast while down A.C. is Gilchrist's at Gardiner's Basin. You can eat outdoors and have a great view of the strip. (It's in between the bay and ocean)

Most casinos charge for parking and on the weekends it can be as much as $25. I would suggest checking out The Borgata (you'll come to the exit as you leave Brigantine) and when you pay the $5 parking fee ask for a transfer which allows you to park in another casino free.

You can also rent a bicycle and ride the boardwalk, but that has to be done in the early morning.

If you wander by the bay there's a walkway behind The Borgata where you can walk to Harrahs and all around to the Golden Nugget.

Have fun.
