Atlantic City NJ Boardwalk Guide
First Boardwalk In The U.S.!
The famous Jersey Shore attraction was also the very first and longest boardwalk to be built in the country. Originally it spanned over 7 miles but now it reaches a little over four miles long and five feet wide. The wooded path is ideal for early morning biking, window shopping, wandering aimlessly, or reevaluating life choices after losing several hundred dollars gambling. The restaurants, casinos, and amusement centers crowding the promenade might overwhelm you, but at least you know you've got options! Hop on the tram car for a ride from one end to the boardwalk to the other to avoid walking the distance or for when the little are just too tired. And remember, the beach is free! So feel free to gamble away all your cash because you won't need it to access the sandy shores and salty sea.
Tallest Lighthouse In The State!
When you climb the steps of the Absecon Lighthouse, you will get some of the most beautiful views overlooking the shore. It's the tallest lighthouse in all of NJ and each one of the 228 steps will lead you closer to astonishing sights of Atlantic City and its skyline.
These are just some of the reasons it stands at #11 in our collection of the top shore attractions in NJ. It is also one of the oldest lighthouses in the country and has recently undergone a multi-million dollar restoration to include a museum, gift shop, and more.
