Desperate for a weekend away? Memorial Day in Atlantic City is the ultimate destination for fun and the perfect time to plan your trip. But you need somewhere special to celebrate the first warm-weather long weekend and the unofficial start to summer. That’s where Borgata comes in. It’s a one-stop-shop for a weekend full of fun. You can stay, play, eat and experience an array of entertainment options. Here’s what you can’t miss!

Where to Stay

The key to an awesome weekend in A.C. starts with a suite place to stay (see what we did there?!). A lavish room and hotel, full of the amenities of your dreams, sets the scene for an awesome and luxurious long weekend. Borgata is the ideal place to #treatyourself. Not only are the rooms spacious and sleek, you can also take in shows, shops and spas—which are all conveniently located onsite.

What to See

No matter your tastes, there’s an entertainment option for everyone at Borgata’s big Memorial Day weekend. For starters, the infamous duo John Foggerty and ZZ Top kick off their “Blues and Bayous” tour at Borgata’s Event Center on Friday, May 25th  followed by all-American singer/songwriter, Kenny Loggins on Sunday, May 27th. If you’re looking for laughs, swing by funnyman, Billy Gardell’s show on the 26th. Or take in Borgata’s popular Burlesque show on the Thursday the 24th.

Where to Party 

Looking to let loose? Head to one of the insane performances happening inside the Premier Nightclub. Steve Aoki’s up first, spinning his tracks on Friday, May 25th, followed by Cash Cash on Saturday. The party keeps going strong through Sunday, 27th with a performance by Afrojack and last but not least, DJ Ruckus takes the reigns Monday night to cap off an unforgettable weekend. If the club isn’t really your scene, sip margaritas at the Gypsy Bar instead. There’s live music and tasty tequila!

What to Eat

Borgata’s incredible fine dining options are a foodie’s dream and a hub of celebrity chefs. Sample sushi and traditional Japanese fare at Izakaya. Dig into decadent Italian dishes at Angeline or and fantastic fusion food at Wolfgang Puck American Grille. Or, satisfy your hankering for a hearty American steak at Bobby Flay Steak or Old Homestead Steak House. Don’t forget to taste test Bobby’s signature Philadelphia-style Strip Steak—it’s topped with slow caramelized onions and a cheese wiz made from aged provolone. Plus, it’s a sweet and small reminder of home!

Borgata’s also running a campaign to give away $5,000 Bonus SLOT DOLLARS® every 15 minutes (as if you need another reason to stay!). Book your weekend away today at theborgata.com.
