5th Square Beach Trip Day

Join us for a family-friendly day down the shore this summer with your favorite group of Urbanist advocates.  We're headed to Atlantic City and have a fun day planned of hoagie-eating, jitney-riding, beach-laying, and of course, margarita-drinking.  Let's meet at 30th Street Station at 8:15 am and, of course, take a ride aboard the newly re-opened Atlantic City Rail Line.

8:15 am   Meet up at 30th Street Station (train leaves 8:30am)
10:06 am  Arrive Atlantic City Rail Terminal - take free Jitney Shuttle to Hard Rock Casino (former Taj Mahal) and hit the beach there
11:00 am  Pick up lunch from White House Subs (there's a shop inside Hard Rock Casino)
12:00 pm  Steel Pier amusements open
2:00 pm  Walk down boardwalk to Caesar's (frozen slushy place in the Playground Pier mall)
3:45 pm  Meet up for Burritos and Margaritas at Los Amigos (Atlantic & Michigan Aves)
5:00 pm  Walk to Atlantic City Rail Terminal (train leaves 5:20pm)
7:00 pm  Arrive at 30th Street Station

    Will, since your update at 8 AM this morning the Accuweather forecast for tomorrow in A.C. has changed to 74% chance of rain during the day. How about cancelling this and going with the rain date of 6/23? There’s nothing worse than being down the shore when it’s raining, n’est pas??

    Hi everyone! The weather looks less than ideal beach-weather, but the trip is still on! It will be cool and cloudy… and pack an umbrella in case we get caught in a pop up rain shower.

    There still will be plenty to do on the boardwalk and steel pier rides!

    The child rate is $6 and adult is $16, both are round-trip… for some reason it features the lowest price on top.

    You have to ride at the times specified with the group for the group rate, also

    Will, the ticket price located under the address for 30th Street Station shows as $6.00, however the price further down the page (where you purchase the quantity) shows the adult ticket as $16.00. Which price is correct? I’m confused as to which reflects the “group” discount. Thanks.
