Need a break from the hustle and bustle of life in New York? Take a trip to Atlantic City. Begin by visiting the Atlantic City Visitors Welcome Center. There you’ll find resources like coupons, hotel reviews, maps, and information on vacation rentals. This can save you money and make it easier to find great places to visit.

The Atlantic City boardwalk is one of the most interesting places to visit. It’s great for walking, biking, jogging, or sightseeing along the piers and wharves with spectacular ocean vistas. Plus there are loads of casinos, restaurants, food stands and other dining options and unique shopping destinations. It’s also a wonderful place to people-watch.

Are you an art lover? The Atlantic City Art Center located on the Garden Pier features the works of regional and national artists. The nearby Atlantic City Historical Museum houses local artifacts and vintage photographs. Your children will love a visit to the Steel Pier with its rides and diverse entertainment options. There’s also the amazing Ripley’s Believe it Or Not Museum with themed galleries and over 400 odd but entertaining exhibits and interactive games.

Atlantic City also has a beautiful lighthouse. Climbing the 226 steps to the top is tough, but the view is worth it. Stopping at each landing and peering out the viewing holes on the way up is a great catch your breath and enjoy the scenery. Plus there are tons of other hidden gems. Take some time and enjoy Atlantic City.
