SECOND QUARTER DATA RELEASED FOR ATLANTIC CITY TOURISM

Second quarter tourism figures were released on Saturday for Atlantic City by the Lloyd D. Levenson Institute of Gaming, Hospitality and Tourism. The numbers showed that visitors to the resort spent about 7 to 10 percent less on hotels, travel and entertainment this year compared to last year’s second quarter. Analysis of the numbers suggest the unseasonable rain and chilly weather in June were factors in the decline.
