I've played in both obviously, and there's positives to both places. I prefer Vegas, in terms of just the cities in general, not just poker. However, for poker and making a living off it, generally, in Vegas definitely a more vast range of people, and a lot of tourists just looking to give away money. But like mrsnake said above, lots of pros at almost every single level and limit, thinking the same thing you are, make a living off the tourists.
AC, there isn't as much tourists, but still there are some, and a lot on weekends. Definitely, not the quality of local players/semi-pros/pros there compared to Vegas.
If you're looking to gamble, and willing to lose a bit early on, but with a chance to make a lot eventually, come to Vegas. If your looking to start up slowly and make easy money, safe bet would be Atlantic City.
