  • The BoardwalkAtlantic City Boardwalk Atlantic City, New Jersey
    The Atlantic City Boardwalk has been the backbone of this quaint seaside resort for decades; allowing you to enter into casinos, hotels, shops, resorts, restaurants and so much more. Reaching out from the famous boardwalk are numerous other piers that feature more attractions; with Garden Pier being known for its wonderful arts and cultural centers that include the Atlantic City Art Center and the historical museum. Some of the spectacular sights that await your arrival include the Showboat Casino and House of Blues, the Resort Casino Hotel, Atlantic City Hilton Casino Hotel, Trump Taj Mahal Casino Hotel, Tropicana Casino and Resort the Quarter, Central Pier Atlantic City Boardwalk, Boardwalk Hall on the Boardwalk, Caesar's Casino Hotel and the Pier Shops, Trump Plaza Casino Hotel, and the many other exciting venues that come alive on the Boardwalk of Atlantic City. The walk is 135 years old and still active, being one of the nation's oldest and most memorable walks or strolls in the country. The first boardwalk was built in 1870, and was small and really crude with only 12 feet of width to walk by the other strollers, and was constructed to keep the sand out of the numerous hotels that lined the boardwalk even then. Today, the walk is 40 feet wide, and stretches over 4.5 miles long lined with unique and eclectic shops, premier hotels and casinos, and many famous tourist attractions. In 1929, the fabulous Boardwalk Hall opened for all kinds of special events and has room for 13,800 people, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as a National Historic Landmark. There are marvelous shows that happen in the many hotels and casinos along the boardwalk, and it is the same Boardwalk that has been displayed on the Monopoly game since it came out. The Miss America contest was held here and it still is billed as America's favorite playground.  Atlantic City has been a resort town since the early 1800s, since it was located in just the right place in South Jersey, nestled in the marshlands and islands, becoming a prime real estate development for some smart thinkers. The city became incorporated in 1854, and the railroad came to the town that same year; all the way from Philadelphia; see what I mean about smart thinkers. It soon was the place to head for the beach for those living in the city of brotherly love, because it was fairly close; and today the buses will take you to the resort town plus give you a few extra dollars to play the slots. The first boardwalk came along in 1870 to keep the sand out of the hotels, and as the businesses began to line along its expanse, the idea was liked and caught on, expanding and extending it by leaps and bounds. The longest the boardwalk got was 7 miles, just before the 1944 hurricane, and is reinforced with rebar and concrete.

  • Absecon LighthouseAbsecon Lighthouse Atlantic City, New Jersey
    The Absecon Light is one of the coastal lighthouses that is located in the northern end of Atlantic City, New Jersey and looks out over the Absecon Islet, and is the second highest lighthouse in the state and third in the country. They started building it in 1854, and the first light came on in 1857. Although the light was deactivated in 1933, the light still shines brightly at night, but it isn't used for navigational purposes. Instead it is open for public visitors and for a small fee can climb to the top and view the panoramic sights around the harbor and island. In 2002, a recreated keeper's quarters was opened and contains a museum and gift shop. Besides the tours, the lighthouse has overnight stays for the scouting program, the summer keeper camp and many special events held through the year. Designed by George Meade, the light still has its first fixed Fresnel lens and doesn't move. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and by the Historic American Buildings Survey. There is a wonderful history museum in the remade 1925 keepers house and exhibits include shipwrecks, local memorabilia, restoration photographs, ocean life and keepers and lighthouse history. There are 228 steps to the top, and when you go, make sure to wear a hat, as these steps allow sediment and sand to fall through as you climb, which ends up on someone climbing up behind you.
