How will I able to reach Atlantic City so I could also enjoy the attractions it provides? I'm getting anxious.

Lea, most folks drive to Atlantic City, but there is also train service from either Philadelphia or New York via New Jersey Transit. NJ Transit also has bus service to Atlantic City from a variety of locations, though you may find good deals with local companies bringing groups of people to town. If you live farther away, then you can fly into Atlantic City International airport or Philadelphia International Airport is a little over an hour outside of town.
