Located in the heart of the Northeast and within easy driving distance of a third of the population of the United States, Atlantic City is the gaming capital of the Northeast and one of America’s premier resort and entertainment destinations.
Settled in 1783, Atlantic City today has a year-round population of 38,000 and is just 11.92 square miles long but boasts many historic firsts, such as being the site of the world’s first Boardwalk and salt-water taffy’s first development. The streets of the famed Monopoly board are named after Atlantic City’s. Atlantic City is 60 miles from Philadelphia, 125 miles from New York and 175 miles from Washington, DC.
From New Jersey’s tallest lighthouse to deep sea fishing, and everything in between, you can always find exciting things to do. Relaxing at one of the Atlantic City's casino spas, the excitement of 24/7 gaming, the thrill of a royal flush or finding a new pair of shoes, the sand in between your toes or visiting one of the many attractions – whatever your pleasure, it is always more pleasurable in AC.
The Atlantic City Boardwalk is the backbone of this seaside resort city, providing access to hotels, resorts, shops, casinos and more. Stroll the great wooden way or ride in a rolling chair and find out what makes the Atlantic City Boardwalk the only one of its kind.
