Everyone should experience the infamous Atlantic City Boardwalk at least once in their lives! There is so much history but unfortunately the older buildings are vacant and are becoming dilapidated - so sad. Also - I wouldn't venture far from the boardwalk! There are cameras...More

You think the Casinos and City would have a vested interest to make a calculated effort to clean up Atlantic City to bring in new and have repeat tourists visit. It is so dirty and run down it’s depressing and sad. I won’t be coming...More

The weather was horrible so we took the term car to get around on the boardwalk. We visited Ripley's Believe It Or Not, and that was fun.

Most shops and restaurants are open on weekends. All the hotels have restaurants as well. You can park in a lot for around 5 or $10 or one of the hotels. Prices range from,$10 to 25

If the tram is not running they have the guys with the hand carts that push you up and down the boardwalk. I know they work all year.
