12. A frivolous state, Atlantic City, New Jersey

If your style is to chuck money away in a hedonistic paradise, then you should travel to Atlantic City, the paradise of the former gangsters on the Jersey Shore. Atlantic City is no longer what it used to be, however, the beaches are clean, the casinos open, and the boardwalks historic.
