Default Atlantic City New Jersey Palm Trees New Jersey Coast

I just recently found out that all the Hotel Chains in Atlantic City in New Jersey buy palms every year and then have them die when winter comes. All that wasted money on palm trees. I mean they do serve a purpose and they will attract people but if they are going to buy palms just for one season, they should invest by adding heaters to the palms to make them survive. Some Palm trees can even survive in those temperatures and with the added heat from the heaters they would have no problems. So all that money spent on Queen Palms and other cheap palms could be spent on cold hardy palms that will not only last a lot longer but will grow year round with little maintenance and no loss. The Trump Hotel and casino is just one place. There are over 80 different hotels and restaurants that do it every year. Crazy. All the fuel spent on trucks to bring them there from Florida and all the money spent on labor with installations and removals.

There are a few threads on here that have cold hardy palms that can live in New Jersey. Check them out and be a little more informed. I am not directing this to anybody just the large corporations that have these palms die every year after year.

Default Atlantic City... fantastic place for everyone!

I saw a lot of palm trees when I was there and every time I see Atlantic City it makes me very happy. I had a great time the last time I went... Just make sure not to leave some kind of card or information in your wallet about your hotel room because you might forget in the wee early hours of the morning... Drinks are on the house when in the casino, so becareful not to bet too much or pull out too much money... If you ever get the chance listen to Katy Perry's song, waking up in Vegas and that's how Atlantic City is... here is the link YouTube - Katy Perry - Waking Up in Vegas... just paste it in the browser.

Its pretty good video and the song is good... I think Katy Perry is very pretty but my girlfriend says otherwise. I have also posted some pics of Atlantic City, just to get a feel of the place! very magical : ).

Anyone that wants to know more about Atlantic City or what there is to do there or what I did there just im me and I will get back to you... you might even get some crazy pictures...

P.S. anyone that says the can rock your world with just one drink, stay away! have you ever seen the movie The Hangover with the guy from The Office, yea, if you haven't that's a good movie to see as well... just make sure your ready to laugh your pants off and make sure there are no kids around. definitely not a movie for the family to watch!
