I was at Caesars a couple of week ago, and the staff I talked to said the new company that owns it has had contractors out there taking measurements etc. Also the indoor beach on the third level was removed when I was there. Don't know if that was temporary or permanent. They said the word is they are trying to have it "redone" by summer. Whatever that means.

Normal and yet historic problem with AC from the start. Everyone lives for 3 or 4 summer months and screw the rest of the year. That is just another reason there steady trade fell off, even before the start of all the other places in PA and other surrounding areas. Among the so many other areas that were easily 'overlooked' everyone should have concentrated on peripheral profit centers and business owners on building Fall and Winter 'things to do' of some type. It was bad horrible in the Fall and Winter, a person was limited only tot he properties themselves and 90% of all other stores and attraction or anything else to do, closed. And then they always said, 'there is no business in the fall or winter'. That whole outlet shops, too little too late, should have been a huge multi story indoor mall, like Mall of America in Minnesota. The whole north end of AC should have had a huge amusement operator brought in with huge tax concessions and incentives and had a big time family entertainment center built there. There was so many other things but they only catered to drinking and gambling in the summer. There are tons of other places that picked up on the same concept around the northeast. Of course today was coming, they set the stage a long time ago. .

I never considered it an indoor beach. It was a place to sit down and rest while enjoying the view. It seemed that there was always someone sitting down reading a book or using a Laptop.

No word but the smug little bastard Apple employees are still there.

The beach "scene" to the right as you enter is behind a construction wall now.

But they are like that all over though? Not just AC?

Used to hit the Tommy Bahama store then go to the rear where the water show was at and there was a good little food place on the south side at the end. Wasn't a bad place to hang out taking into consideration the only other place was the outlet shops. Of course we used to run over to the mall at Egg Harbor Township also as well as numerous stores out on the White Horse Pike.

Yes they did, LOL! All of us playing at Caesar's used to run over there constantly and get those. I do remember they had all kinds of great sweets also. It was kind of a deli, bakery, ice cream shop??

Who remembers the grimy McDonalds that was right up the escalator in the front of the 2nd floor before they redid the whole pier in the 00s? Classic. Always dirty, always busy, always slow. More than one losing night ended there...

Well the place I'm talking about, on I guess the third level...had sand and beach chairs in it, and faced the ocean. So in my mind it was an indoor beach. Funny how people see things differntly
