The New Jersey seaside gambling heaven of Atlantic City is as popular a destination on the east coast as Las Vegas is in the west. Granted, these are the gambling mecca of the US but there is so much more to Atlantic City than just the boardwalk, casinos, and the floor shows. For locals and the many visitors to the city, the summer concerts make this a desirable destination. Here are some shows to consider in the month of August.
