I love traveling with my kids, but every once in a while, it’s nice for parents to leave the kids at home (with grandparents, of course) and getaway for a night or two. This summer, we were so lucky to be invited to visit the Borgata Atlantic City for one night in July! Needless to say, we had the best time and the Borgata AC is literally the most perfect place for a kid-free vacation.
My husband was comped a room for one night and two fly Borgata flights from Long Island to Atlantic City. I was lucky to be his travel partner. As always, all opinions are my own.
Atlantic City Getaways for Couples with Fly Borgata
A place we love to travel to is Atlantic City, New Jersey. Yes, this sea-side town is famous for its casinos and nightlife, but we love AC as both a parents-only getaway and a family trip. Since we do often bring kids to Atlantic City we ALWAYS get asked if there is enough family fun to justify a visit. And the answer is a resounding YES – there are so many great things to do in Atlantic City with Kids!
Things to do in Atlantic City with Kids
One of my most popular posts is my 48 Hours in … Atlantic City recap of our winter trip to the city by the sea. Atlantic City is one of our family’s favorite destinations, and I have been going there since I was a kid. I know it well and always have fun! And on this recent trip, I didn’t even gamble! There was no time! There were so many other great things to do!
If you have never been, Atlantic City is located about 90 miles south of New York City and about an hour east of Philadelphia. There is a small airport nearby, but is most easily accessed by car. Atlantic City is a boardwalk town on a barrier island, meaning there is an ocean beach to the east and a bay to the west. One of the big attractions is the casinos, but especially in recent years the big hotels have begun to offer other amenities besides gaming. And in the summer, the beach is always fun! So come with me for ANOTHER 48 Hours in… Atlantic City.
Another 48 Hours in… Atlantic City
UPDATE: AS OF OCTOBER 2017, MOMMA TO GO IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING GUEST POSTS.
May was a super busy blogging month for me! I wrote about Hawaii, Wine Tasting in both Italy and Long Island, the best beach essentials, tips for flying with your little ones, among other fun things. I also participated in TWO Awesome collaborations.
Last week, as I was completing a 9-mile run on the treadmill, I started brainstorming ideas for upcoming posts. I want to write about our trip to Legoland, I still have some Hawaii posts to put out and I need to write something about long flights with kids (I have awesome tips!!!). But, I realized, first and foremost, I must write my thoughts on training for a half-marathon.
Disclaimer: I have two successful half-marathons under my belt. I am currently training for my third, which is in two weeks. I am not a physician, nor am I a personal trainer. I am just sharing my amateur experience. I hope you realize that if I can do it, so can you!
Half-Marathon Training Tips
One of my favorite places to visit is Atlantic City. I love the casinos, the beach, boardwalk, and the cheesy Jersey Shore vibe. I always have fun there. My earliest memory of visiting AC was after my cousins wedding… in 1992! Last October, I ran the 2016 AmeriHealth Atlantic City Half Marathon with that same cousin! My husband even proposed to me in a limo on a surprise getaway to the Borgata!
We have visited AC almost every year during the week between Christmas and New Year’s. In 2011 we took our infant daughter and in 2012, 13 & 15 headed down without kids. This year, I wanted to spend time all together so the four of us headed down for 48 Hours In… Atlantic City.

48 Hours in … Atlantic City, New Jersey
Recently, I have seen some other travel bloggers putting together both 2016 travel recaps and 2017 travel resolutions, and I figured what a fun way to look back at the year and all of the great trips we have done! And of course I have a few adventures I am excited about in 2017! I only just launched this blog in October, and did not get an opportunity to write about everything we did in the first three-quarters of the year! So without further adieu… I give you the Momma To Go 2016 Travel Recap!

I am so excited to write my first fitness related post! I have so many ideas for fitness articles, and inspired by the Half-Crazy Mama (who has an awesome blog reviewing all of her races), I first want to share my review of the AmeriHealth NJ Atlantic City Half Marathon.
