The boardwalk is very, very seedy. We went down for the day having never been to AC, as we are not gamblers, to see what it was all about. What a mess! It just seemed very trashy and I knew for sure that I did not want to be there after dark with my toddler and pregnant sister. The outlets... More

Wide spacious boardwalk, enjoyable bicycling in the mornings, strolling in the evening, or just lounging on the comfortable benches to watch people of all races & languages passing buy. Families, lovers, kids on skateboards a kiliadoscope of humanity floating in the sea breeze.....

The first time I came here a few years ago was not high-season so the area seemed decent, I loved the Tanger Outlets and thought my teen girls would enjoy the beach and shopping. We really wanted some beach time most of all, which in August we did have. But the boardwalk and the area is definitely more sketchy and... More

I hadn't been to AC for a few years and went back this past August. The boardwalk was horrible. There were many shuttered store fronts and restaurants. The exterior of the casinos were worn and dirty looking. Only thing on the boardwalk were crappy (very very low end) t-shirt shops, massage parlours, tarot card readers etc. etc. etc. One wonderful... More

It was a great outdoor concert featuring Lady Antebellum who was kicking it. The weather was great the music loud great viewing on the monitors. The vibe was exciting and the fans well mannered. The AC PD did a great job there were no incidents around the area I was and most everyone was just having a good time. Best... More

Many different stores, shops (high and low end stores), and restaurants close by. Very clean boardwalk and safe with police being plentiful. Prices very reasonable for the location and resort area.

Walked for a couple of hours. Have never been to this place but will return for sure when the kids are older. Wear comfortable shoes. The kids had a blast. Lots of places to eat and benches to rest when you get too tired.
