This place is both absurd and kind of amazing at the same time. The over-the-top, kitschy, crowded, Disneyland-esque atmosphere is not my kind of travel, but it is worth going over for an evening to browse the expansive landscaping, the aquarium and the casino. The Casino has several Dale Chihuly glass sculptures that are beautiful. The aquarium is fun -- manta rays, sting rays, tropical fish, turtles, etc. I think you usually have to pay anywhere from $39 to $69 to tour the aquarium during the day. I went in the evening, and there was no one around to check wristbands or anything, so we went right in. It's underground.
The Marina Village shopping area is crowded and full of kids running around, but it's not a bad place to grab a drink or some Ben and Jerry's and listen to the guy playing the steel drums. It's also the place to gawk at the enormous yachts in the Atlantis marina.
