The AC boardwalk was great! you had a variety of shops and casinos to choose from. You are right near the beach. There are some cool street performances. The only down fall you might get blisters on your feet from all the walking.

We visited the Boardwalk for the first time. It was boring as hell. Stores there are not good, mostly 1 dollar stores, fortune tellers and cheap restaurants. The walk is huge, it takes hours to walk side to side and you can't use bikes. There are some rolling chairs (rickshaws) that you can hire but they are a bit expensive... More

It's decent and there is a lot of walking. We did get tired as we are senior citizens so we went for a buggy ride. We went from one end to the other stopping for lunch at hard rock café. We visited several casinos and we really enjoyed ourselves. It was a little expensive but it was nice.

The boardwalk is a great place to walk and has direct access to the beach. It has typical tourist shops as well as designer stores at Caesar's and outlets just a short walk from the boardwalk. There is lots to see while getting some exercise

For several years, I had always wanted to go to Atlantic City, NJ in the month of October. Well, my husband and I both went for a small vacation and the weather was perfect, although the weather forcast said that it would rain. It didn't rain, although it was a little on the cool side, but oh so perfect. We... More

Unfortunately with so many casinos closing their doors one after the other, AC is quickly becoming a ghost town. The boardwalk is virtually empty, and hardly anybody is buying anything from the local vendors. The boardwalk itself is in a state of disrepair and needs to be taken apart and built anew. What a shame

It's a boardwalk. Pizza, t-shirts, tattoos and fortune tellers are pretty much the norm. In the summer it can be a fun stop when headed to or leaving the beach or casino. There is a little less going on in seasons other than summer. If you like to people watch this is the place to be! Grab a seat on... More

I liked the shops near the Resort Hotel. I also liked the fresh Air and the nice strolling along the ocean. I was sad the amusement park was closed, I hope it was just for the season,.
