Walked the Boardwalk on a warm summer's night and wasn't impressed at all. There were shops after shops lined up next to each other selling cheap imported items from China at outrageous prices. Most of the stuff being sold can be bought at dollar stores or flea markets near you. Maybe it was the lighting at night, but this place... More

It was very nice to talk all the way with seagulls, very cute and relaxing- however, too many so omers and cigarette butts on the board walk that was definitely regrettable.

The Atlantic City Boardwalk is still a great place to visit. Hurricane Sandy did some damage to the inlet area, but 99% of the boardwalk is intact and a joy to visit. Whether its a brisk walk, watching people, shopping, casinos, great restaurants it's terrific. The beach is #1. Too many people forget the natural resource of the beach with... More

With the summer crowds gone, we were able to easily walk along the boardwalk without bumping into people. Although many of the shops are the tacky, beach variety, we enjoyed just walking and doing a bit of people watching. There are many places where you can access the beach and it also was not crowded at all. I would suggest... More
