Comments: Just 8 miles from Atlantic City's Boardwalk and beach, Shady Pines Carefree RV Park, is a beautiful small park in a residential area. Only 100 sites, this 55+ park has many trees and is immaculately maintained. The majority of sites hold park models for year round tenants and they are well-kept with colorful plantings of flowers and bushes. They have a large community/activities center, a pool, dog park, and 30/50amp FHU. The campground also honors Good Sam and AAA club discounts.

Shady Pines is 177 miles from our last stop at the Delaware State Campground in Rehoboth Beach, DE. We passed by the large Dover AFB and also Dover International Speedway where NASCAR weekend was revving up and we could see dozens of RV's parked on the grounds ready for some Friday afternoon tailgate parties.

We also passed through some road construction but the majority of the roads were 4-lane and smooth. GPS works well for the trip and the lowest overpass we encountered was 13'11". The only bad parts were the seemingly umpteen toll booths. We paid a total of $23.35 for our 4-axles coming in. That includes the Delaware Turnpike ($8), the NJ Turnpike ($6.35), and the Atlantic City Expressway ($9). The staff recommended a local Italian restaurant and we found the food to be very good.

Saturday Afternoon on The Boardwalk in Atlantic City has to be one of the top ten spots for people watching! It's an easy drive from the campground down Rte 30. The streets are congested but easily driven with the help of a trusty and watchful Navigator. Parking in AC depends on what you want to see and do. We wanted to make a circuit of the city, and have a walk on the famed Boardwalk. We first attempted to park in the garage at Trump Plaza but seeing the sign stating the clearance was only 6'6" we did a quick turnabout. The casinos have parking and will be either free or just a nominal charge if you have your parking voucher stamped by the casino. There are dozens of parking lots on the side streets leading to the Boardwalk. They charge $5 for 6 hours, and the lots closest to the beach and Boardwalk charge $7 for the 6 hours. We parked a couple of blocks from the beach and walked to the Boardwalk. Niki did well for quite awhile before her new knee told us it was time to stop. The food on The Boardwalk was surprisingly very good.
