Sadly, the Boardwalk of my childhood no longer exists - the wood on the walk, salt water taffy, blown glass animals, the Jitney, the smell of the ocean, the ferris wheel on the pier. It was truly a seaside experience, and some of the best surf of my life - body surfing for hours until our teeth were chattering and... More

Youre in AC. Why? The answer is probably the reason why you'll accept the boardwalk! Its fun...fairly clean...safe...carnival like fun. Theres also a mall on one of the piers that is nice.

Love walking on the AC Boardwalk. It's great that there are many benches along the way to stop and people watch. There are the push carts or new trams if you're tired of walking. There are low-cost food stands and high-priced gourmet restaurants in the casinos, something for everyone. There are a few rides, games, and miniature golf for the... More

Walking the boardwalk is a must when in AC. We have our favorite pizza place and our favorite place for orange vanilla soft serve. I always get salt water taffy as well. No trip is complete without the search for 99 cent sunglasses. Most times we come back with 4 or more. We also get 99 cent garden decorations. You... More

It seems that the closing of 4 casinos has caused a certain amount of anguish amongst the Boardwalk population. The people with their hands out has gone up dramatically. But that is countered by a group of smiley-faced solicitors who want to give you $100 to see a timeshare presentation. If only the timeshare people could give $100/each to the... More

My husband and I were passing through and stay just one night in Atlantic City. The beach is not that clean but the boardwalk is really cool and entertaining. They have a laser light show every night and if you get the chance definitely going to that!

This was my first boardwalk trip. It was nice. I liked the beach and the casinos. Plenty of entertainment for younger crowd and for adults too.

We enjoyed just simply scrolling up and the Boardwalk for almost 3 hours. Stopping at every other shop, the most disappointing thing about the shops on the Boardwalk was that most sold the exact SAME THING. It was rather annoying. All in all, it was nice to catch fresh air.

Very secure, lots of food and sites. Several casino's located directly on the boardwalk, so if your looking for a break from the sun during the day. Summer brings entertainment to the area. Grab an ice cream cone and just sit and listen.
