Atlantic City has a very colorful history. It has always thrived on entertainment. More recently though, it has become a location for such popular Jersey Shore events as Boardwalk Hall events, celeb sightings, championship boxing matches and concerts.

The Boardwalk

Everything that you can possibly need is right within walking distance. There are shops, shows, casinos, five star restaurants, and attractions.

All of the benefits that Atlantic City enjoys as not just being one of the few beaches in America that has a boardwalk, but also because it is the largest boardwalk in America.

Can you think of a better way to top off a day that was filled with gourmet dining, shows and shopping than strolling on the boardwalk watching the sun set? For those who prefer aquatic activities, there is great surfing, parasailing and fishing on this beach and you might even choose to go on a short, relaxing cruise.

The world famous Atlantic City boardwalk was constructed in 1870. Since that time, it has become one of the great American icons. You can walk on the boardwalk with the beach on one side of you and the sunset on the other as you check out the shops that range from salt water taffy shops to high end boutiques.
