Doesn't have much to offer any more. The Tanger outlet is not far if you want more than the AC mugs & Tshirts. Easy access to different casinos & fun eateries. The beach is right there from hotel to water. Chair rentals available. Water & sand is nice.

Nice place to stop and experience if you've never been before. It's incredibly touristy (much like Niagara falls on the Canadian Side) but overall it's enjoyable. Also neat to see what BoardWalk Empire is based off.

Access to many casinos is available along with shopping and food. The pizza by the slice is good as is people watching. Walking the whole length is a bit long, but jitneys on the street are inexpensive to take you one way.

The mayor photographs himself in front of what may be the only non-blighted area on the entire boardwalk-Steel Pier is creepy, the stores offer junk not... More

This is a very wide and nice boardwalk with lots of shops, casinos and restaurants. Most of the food available though is not healthy at all. It's like carnival food, so if you are looking for healthier food this is not the place to go. The steel pier is a very fun place with rides for all ages. The only... More

We need to help NJ and the shores and stop in areas nearby like Tuckerton and all the damaged areas and do business there to show we care. And do not forget to go see Smithville Village and eat at at Smithville Inn which is wonderful too

Great food, great entertainement, the weather helped out as well. We felt safe and had clean rest rooms to rely upon in case of need. 15$... More
