The boardwalk offers a great variety of eateries, boardwalk shows and a great variety of souvenirs for everyone! I really enjoyed the battery operated light up T-shirts!

We are actually very surprised to see how vibrant the Atlantic City Boardwalk was! It was too bad to see a couple of closedown casinos in a couple of closedown retail shops right on the boardwalk but otherwise everything was open and there was a nice crowd showed up each day and seem to enjoy both the beach and the...

Just got back from another girls road trip to A.C. where we stayed at the Sheraton convention hall hotel. Great place if you like peace and quiet when you retire to your room. Sauna was the best after walking the boards and gambling. Love this hotel.

The boardwalk can be expensive but yet it's plenty for the family to enjoy the rides and the attraction are fun. Be prepared to spend 100.00 or more for tickets and certain rides you have to pay cash for but the tickets never expire

Had to visit the Boardwalk to get it off of my bucket list. It was great. Love all of the little shops along the stroll. Great not to be bothered by people wanting a hand out. I could visit it again. Love walking and looking out at the ocean. Very clean.

Love some of the old history. Atlantic City was the place to go in the early 1900's until the late 1950's. The casinos hurt this vacation city more than it helped. It appears it is going to return and rebound however. Soon, some first class water and amusements parks will arrive. Some rather unsavory characters running about but lots of... More

We walked up and down the boardwalk to see all there was including the Steel Pier, the beach, the casinos, the restaurants, the "light show".

Have you ever watched that episode of It's Always Sunny where they visit AC and find druggies and bums under the boardwalk? That is about how the real experience will be. The boardwalk also contains prostitutes and pushy cart-pushing men. I would not recommend going out alone if you are a female. The shops along the boardwalk are family-owned and... More

BEST place on the east coast that is within driving distance from NYC and fun. I used to go all the time as a child and still do
