  • Absecon Lighthouse
    Staring into the Fresnal lens atop Absecon Lighthouse is like looking into a giant, all-seeing eye?one that's guarded New Jersey for more than 150 years. It was 1857 when a lighthouse keeper first climbed the tower's 228 steps and brought the lens to life, offering safe passage to ships and fish with poor night vision. In 1999, the tower opened to the public, solidifying Absecon Lighthouse's current role as a museum and educational center. Today, Absecon Lighthouse lets visitors climb its spiral staircase and gaze out from the third tallest lighthouse in the United States. Beyond the view, expansive grounds house a replica of the original keeper's dwelling, as well as several exhibits showcasing photos from the 1800s, info on shipwrecks, and much more. Absecon Lighthouse also hosts fun and offbeat events, from fashion shows to murder mysteries.

  • Tropicana Casino and Resort
    Across 25 cities, up to 10,000 Santas descend from the skies?or perhaps their earthbound apartments?decked out in red and white costumes for a night that's anything but silent. Rather than crawling down chimneys, these jolly young Saint Nicks are crawling from one hip bar and pub to another, making their lists (of beers), drinking them twice, and preferring the naughty to the nice. At this annual Yuletide bash, which was once a 40-Santa event before it exploded into a national phenomenon, everyone gets to play Father Christmas as throngs of revelers follow their red noses along a path of drink specials, food specials, and a hottest Santa contest. Each event concludes with a live concert in which the Santas pack a music venue and shake their stuffing to an array of popular rock bands. A portion of the proceeds benefit charities.

  • The Golden Nugget Casino
    At Atlantic City Princess Cruises, solid ground isn't a requirement for having a good time. Helmed by a Coast Guard-licensed captain, their classic, comfortable yacht sets off for public and private cruises, tours, and mixers for lonely boats looking for love. Departing Saturday and Sunday mornings, the Cruise 'n' Brunch takes passengers on a leisurely two-hour tour of the scenic Back Bay, allowing guests to feast both on the scenery and dishes from the omelette bar. The Sunset cruise takes a similar tack—a buffet of hot and cold hors d'oeuvres fills bellies as the Atlantic City Princess skims across the water.

  • Haunted Tales
    A night at Haunted Tales features a slew of scary stories about the Jersey Devil and real pirates. The special effects theater shows creepy tales of real local pirates that are said to still haunt the Jersey Shore and the story of the rarely glimpsed Jersey Devil. But slowly, elements of the tales begin to come to life right there in the theater: the sea breeze starts to blow; water splashes across viewers. Some say the Jersey Devil itself makes an appearance. Afterward, guests who aren't too shaken are offered the chance to relax?permanent style?in the Double Coffin Simulation Ride, in which participants are closed inside a coffin and listen to a bone-chilling story as the coffin moves and shakes along with the tale's progression. The experience recreates being buried alive right down to the smell and the earthworms complaining about their noisy new neighbors.
