Located within Atlantic County and part of Absecon Island,
Atlantic City became part of New Jersey on May 1, 1854. The train route from Philadelphia started in the same year, making the South Jersey city easily accessible and very popular. First constructed in 1870, the original boardwalk went the length of the city. Having survived the hurricane in 1944, the boardwalk is about 3 miles shorter. It still remains the longest boardwalk in the world to date. The Traymore Hotel is one the first high storied hotels to offer fabulous views since the early 1900’s. The trend caught on, and by the 1930’s, there were hotels all over the Atlantic City boardwalk. This was the spark which encouraged the creation of the game Monopoly.

Atlantic City has a natural sea breeze keeping it relatively cool in summer. The ocean also assures less snow in winter. Generally, the weather is pleasant, but can feel a bit tropical in the summer.

In Atlantic City, you can take a vacation whether it’s for two days or two weeks. There’s something for everyone. Find the ocean view at your doorstep from your hotel balcony, the boardwalk or on the expansive beaches. Outdoor activities like fishing or amusement parks are refreshing for the whole family.
