On rainy days, AC visitors can see a blockbuster on a big screen at Tropicana's IMAX Theatre.

In addition to running Hollywood films, the Tropicana also screens 3-D, kid-friendly flicks.

Tropicana's IMAX Theatre is located on the third floor of The Quarter. Ticket prices vary by film; you can reserve your tickets online or purchase them at the movie theater. Parking costs $5 for IMAX customers. For current ticket prices and showtimes, visit Tropicana's website.

#1 Atlantic City Beach

If you're not visiting Atlantic City to gamble, chances are you're coming to hit the beach. The city's beach is wide and its camel-hued sands are soft – recent travelers said they were impressed with the cleanliness and with how much room there was to spread out on this beach. The Atlantic Ocean's waves are good for body boarding, boogie boarding and wave jumping for the little ones, while adults can enjoy walking along the flat terrain near the water or relaxing in a beach chair. On-site facilities include showers and changing rooms, plus lifeguards are on duty during the summer from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Beachgoers also have access to the boardwalk, which is populated with eateries and shops selling beach gear and water sports equipment.

Unlike many other New Jersey beaches, Atlantic City's sands are free to access – you don't need a fee-based badge or pass to visit. For more information on the beach, visit the tourism board's website
