It’s been a very hot stretch of summer weather.
Rain usually follows extreme hot patches like this … Which made us think about putting a nice list of things to do in the Atlantic City, New Jersey area on a rainy day.
We turned to our listeners, readers, family and friends on my Facebook Page to submit their rainy day activity ideas.
Our list will give you and yours some good ideas for the next time that Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate.
