Escape for a night
hedgehog94/Shutterstock Heat things up this winter by planning an overnight getaway—you can take advantage of low rates and fewer people—especially with a resort destination. For an East Coast example, Atlantic City boasts celebrity restaurants, luxury hotels, and upscale retail shopping. Adjacent to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, the Water Club is the city’s first boutique-lifestyle hotel, offering a personalized guest experience within a distinctively cosmopolitan setting that’s a progressive departure from the old-school Atlantic City experience. The Water Club has 800 guestrooms and suites, a two-story spa, food and beverage hospitality by renowned Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian, heated indoor pools and outdoor pools, and easy access to Borgata which features first-rate shows and restaurants from chefs including Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck. Here are some tips for the perfect weekend getaway packing list.
