Atlantic City is famous for its boardwalk, beaches, and casinos. Its coastal location early on led to people seeing it as an ideal place in which to build a beach resort town. The advent of the railway lines made it easy for visitors to come to the city, and this popular resort city was born. The famous boardwalk was initially built in 1870, although it has been expanded and modified since then. It was the first boardwalk in the country. When visiting the boardwalk, you should be sure to try some of the famous saltwater taffy shops for a treat. The tourism reached a peak in the early 20th century, but the legalization of gambling in the 1970s led to the building of the casinos and a new surge of visitors.

Location: Easily Accessible Resort City in New Jersey

Atlantic City is on the Atlantic Coast in New Jersey. It has its own airport, the Atlantic City International Airport, or you can arrive at the Philadelphia International Airport, which is about an hour away. There are also frequent rail and bus service to the city from nearby cities, including New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. The city has easy to access public transportation for getting around once you are in town, including the passenger jitney along the boardwalk.

Business: the Gambling Capital of the East Coast

Atlantic City's economy is heavily tied into tourism and gambling. It is called the Gambling Capital of the East Coast, with several large and small casinos within its borders. There are also many hotels, and several retail stores, amusements, and restaurants on the famous boardwalk. The Atlantic City Convention Center provides 46,000 square meters of showroom space, several exhibition halls, and meeting rooms.

Culture: Experience the Life of a Lighthouse Keeper

The Absecon Light is an old lighthouse built in 1857 that is the tallest in the state. Although it is no longer used as a navigational aid, it still shines its light nightly. The Keeper's Cottage is now a museum, and you can walk up the 228 steps to the top to see some amazing views of the surrounding area. For a more refined evening, you can enjoy a performance by the Atlantic City Ballet, the Bay-Atlantic Symphony, or see what is on at the Dante Theatre of the Arts.

Activities: Take a Break from Gambling on the Beach

The beaches of Atlantic City are just as famous as the casinos and boardwalk. You can relax after a day of gambling while walking along the boardwalk or on the beach. Alternatively, you can spend the day on the beach swimming, surfing, cruising, fishing, or enjoying other water sports before spending your evenings enjoying the casinos. If you want a break from the outdoors but still experience ocean life, you can visit the Atlantic City Aquarium.
