I'm just now having a quiet minute or three at work to read all your responses!
I live in Albany NY & grew up 40 minutes north of here. I'm very tempted to research the South Carolina or Maryland coast as Im a bit fed up with winter..however, first priority would be the Beach !

The Maryland coast is not going to be warm in winter. Daytime highs in the 40's, to lows in the 30's average in January. It is probably warmer than Albany though!

YES, that's warmer than Albany.. lol. I'm trying not to be too far from family and they are mainly up here! A 5-6 hour drive is manageable.


Ocean City looks awesome. ///Any thoughts on Atlantic City? I've just begun researching NJ , so I haven't even visited AC

Well, the short version is that Atlantic City for one or two blocks from the ocean is full of the glitz of hotels and casinos and a shopping area or two with outlets, etc. Further in from that it's a run-down ghetto with a higher-than-average percentage of the population living in poverty and all that comes with such places; such as prostitution, drug addiction, crime. It's not a nice place to live.

However, as I think someone mentioned upthread, neighboring towns like Ventnor City might be a bit more affordable. Ventnor is where a lot of the cops, firefighters, and casino workers live. There are apartment complexes where working people live. The town also has its own beach. There is no liquor sold in Ventnor City.

Yes...but then you'd be in Atlantic City. They should be paying people to stay there.

I've done some footwork for you, re: this old CD post about it...read and enjoy (or....better stated...be disappointed):

One year of living in Atlantic City: A Resident Perspective

First post:

"I moved to Atlantic City, NJ from Richmond, VA in July 2014. Just wanted to share my experience with you guys.

A hot summer day a few days before 4th of July 2014 i was standing on Atlantic Avenue. "so this is my new home" I thought to myself. The sheer amount of people on the streets, the fast pace of everything, the taxi cabs, it was eerily similar to New York City. There was a gritty urban feel to the city, it feels alot like Newark or Philly. Crackheads, prostitutes, and beggers were everywhere. Guys were posted up at corner stores asked if i needed drugs and pretty much typically what you would see in a gritty city. I thought , this cant be too bad, and that was the worst of it. Boy was i wrong. Im used to crime and the like, but the crime here is vicious. Ive witnessed a guy getting his head sliced off at the corner store on my street by a dude high on pcp. 4 people have been shot and killed in 1 year on my street. 2 women were raped 3 doors down from me by two crackheads about a month ago, ive witnessed robberies and vicious street beat downs. But that isn't the crazy part. The crazy part is i live LITERALLY 3 blocks from the beach and boardwalk, and 2 blocks to the casinos. People younger then me egg tourists cars, and shout "get out the hood" to people not from their neighborhoods. There are 6 different housing projects in a few blocks of each other! You can literally get off the Atlantic City expressway and go 1 block either direction and be in a complete ghetto. Ive never seen a city that has the hood and attractions mixed together! This past summer i have seen two block party's with loud offensive hood music blasted till the speakers almost cracked being shot up by gang members. This was on a major highway too ! (u.s route 30) . It has gotten so bad that ive seen people drive into Atlantic City, look around and hop back on the expressway. Kids throwing bricks at cars i mean this city is awful. I love the charm this city has , but this is a little too out of control for me. I come from a high crime area of Richmond, but it is no where near this extent. Atlantic City needs help. I would advise any one looking to move here to please RECONSIDER. THIS IS NOT A GOOD PLACE TO LIVE."
