4th of July Recap

I hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July. This year I had a very untraditional fourth of July but it was fun no less. Usually I spend the fourth with my family at the Rivah, but this year I headed on a road trip up north ot New Jersey.

Courtney, Bethany and I headed up to NJ Friday morning, arrived in NJ around 5 and ran some errands before grabbing a quick bite to eat. I meet some of their UVA friends and we had a fun night enhanced by a new stereo.

Saturday we were planning on going to Seaside Hieghts (yes, the home of Jersey Shore cast) but after hearing a traffic report saying it would be around 3 hours of traffic, we decided to drive 30 min to Huricanne Harbor instead. We did a lot of the water rides, and while I usually dispise water parks (gross) this time was fun and surprisingly clean!

Saturday night we made dinner and watched Shawshank Redemption, it was such a good movie!

Sunday we woke up early to get to Six Flags before it really "opened." And good thing, we were on the 2nd train for Kingda Ka, the tallest roller coaster in the world and fastest in America! I loved it! Since it was a little rainy and overcast we rode all the major rides with barely to no line, it was amazing. My favorites would have to be Kingda Ka, El Toro, and Nitro.

We left Six Flags and headed to Atlantic City. We got stuck behind a horrible accident and felt blessed to be safe on the rodes. Atlantic City was like nothing I have experienced before. Big lights, bright city for ya. We showered and pregammed before hitting up the casino in our hotel. Hello penny slots! I played penny slots for a while, so fun, and ended up $16 and a free screwdriver.

We also went on the boardwalk to Tropicana, a nearby hotel/casino, to a bar for a bit and walked on the beach. It ended up being a very late night, but so much fun!
