The Atlantic City Special

The National Railway Historical Society,
Washington DC Chapter, Incorporated presents
The Atlantic City Special
Saturday, February 27, 2010

Travel by train to Atlantic City on this winter-time oneday group tour to enjoy the fabulous annual Mummer's Show of Shows at historic Boardwalk Hall.

The day begins with an early morning departure from Washington 's Union Station on Amtrak 's Northeast Corridor Regional service for a quick ride to Philadelphia. At Philadelphia, we 'll change to New Jersey Transit 's Atlantic City service train, traveling across New Jersey on the route of Pennsylvania Railroad trains which included the Sea Clipper, Nelly Bly and Flying Spray. With a late morning arrival at Atlantic City, you 'll have an hour to explore the boardwalk, shop at Pier Shops at Caesar's, or get in some casino play as you make your way to Boardwalk Hall for the show. Boardwalk Hall is an eight block walk from the train station; limited free public shuttle busses may also be available (space not guaranteed).

The entertainment -- the fabulous Mummer 's Show of Shows --- begins at Noon at Boardwalk Hall, the Miss America Pageant's home for many years. You 'll enjoy all the colorful pageantry, spectacular costumes and musical entertainment as the sixteen Mummer string bands perform for you. Mummery dates to the late 17th century in Philadelphia, and by the 1900 's became an organized parade of community based groups to celebrate the New Year. Food will be available from Boardwalk Hall concessions.

After the show, we'll depart from Atlantic City's NJT Train station, returning to Philadelphia, where there'll be a short layover with time enough to enjoy a quick supper (not included, individual settlement) at Philadelphia 's 30th Street Station, before we head south on Amtrak 's Regional train service to Washington.
