Next up at No. 5 on the list is The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

While you're in Atlantic City, try your luck at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Formerly the Trump Taj Mahal, the hotel has pumped over $500 million into renovations since 2018 in order to completely rebrand itself.

If that isn't enough to get you through the doors, maybe the fact that the Hard Rock is one of the biggest casinos in the world will sway you. At over 120,000 square feet, it practically feels like its own city. Plus, the Hard Rock name draws in A+ acts at its Etess Arena, including Carrie Underwood, Phish, and Alicia Keys.

Since taking over the site of the Taj Mahal, the Hard Rock has become a popular spot for both tourists and locals to gamble.  It also has top-notch shows and events at the Etess Arena.
