Atlantic City is one of the most popular resort cities on America’s east coast. It’s located on Absecon Island, New Jersey, and has attractive beaches, casinos, restaurants, bars and amusement piers. Since the first railroad reached Absecon Island in 1854, Atlantic City has provided carnival-like entertainment for those from New York and other major cities. Historic sights and art deco-style architecture keep Atlantic City charming, despite all the developments. Before settlers arrived in the late 17th century, the Lenni-Lenape Indians made the most of Absecon Island’s subtropical climate in summer only. Nowadays, the warmer months from June to September are still the most visited by tourists and can get very crowded.
The Atlantic City Boardwalk is the small city’s main entertainment precinct. It’s where you’ll find Steel Pier, an amusement park on the waterfront, and the historic Boardwalk Hall. Atlantic City is famous for its casino resorts and its foreshore has plenty of bars and fine-dining options.
Learn about local history at the Absecon Lighthouse. Follow the coast south to Margate to visit Lucy the Elephant. This delightful structure from 1881 has become a symbol of the Jersey coast. Kids will also love the amusement parks, such as Gillian's Wonderland Pier in Ocean City and Raging Waters in Wildwood.
Atlantic City is connected to the mainland by road. It’s easy to get there by car and you can also go by train or bus. In the city, public transport is affordable and “jitney” buses run parallel to the boardwalk and to and from other major hubs. The Atlantic City International Airport is a 20-minute drive from downtown and the well-connected Philadelphia International Airport is just over an hour away.
Atlantic City has been a popular destination for vacationers for over 150 years, and its lively waterfront precinct is a fun place for a long weekend on the New Jersey coastline.
