Casino gambling, a famous boardwalk, and seaside charm

Casino gambling is what drives tourists in Atlantic City, but this charming seaside city has many other attractions. The historic Atlantic City Boardwalk features an amusement park with rides, games and food, and the beaches are fantastic for swimming, sunning, and surfing. The Atlantic City Historical Museum and Atlantic City Art Center offer local art and culture, and the nightlife is some of the best on the East Coast.
