It’s fun to stop by while driving to either south or north- good to take a break to see this historical site to salute and donate to help reserve this iconic and interesting architecture.

This was built in a time when businessmen/women had imagination and built things to last, ( today it would be a temporary structure made out of aluminum with a fiberglass skin. ) The interior has many historic photos and a video presentation of Lucy's birth and her restoration, and I'm glad she's being well taken care of by her historical society. The best part is the view from the Howdah, miles in every direction. The only caveat I have is the spiral-ing stair cases to the different levels are steep and narrow, some visitors commented on how they had problems with steep stairs, but everyone made it up and down with no problems. A NJ Treasure that should be enjoyed and supported.

We have been coming to the Atlantic City area for 20+ years and this is the first time we made it to Lucy! We lucked out getting on the last tour of the day. Tour lasted about 30 minutes. Very nicely priced. 2 teens and 2 adults - under $40. Tour guides were informative and had a good pace. We didn't feel rushed. If you wanted to go a little early there were some food places near by, that you could grab a bite/drink and picnic around Lucy's legs. Lucy gift shop on site as well.

She’s open for tours and is just a great piece of history! Beautiful spot right on the beach with amazing views of the ocean! She even has a bar and grill to eat at while there! Such a great day trip!
