Atlantic City Travel Information

Atlantic City has been a favorite seaside resort for tourists up and down the Eastern coast since the second half of the 19th century. The boardwalk, which today extends at just over 4 miles, was built in 1870 and has become a timeless icon for leisure and fun in the sun. Atlantic City’s Ocean Pier is the first seaside amusement pier and was built in 1882.

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, be sure to stock up on boxes of salt water taffy before your Atlantic City flight home. Salt water taffy was discovered in Atlantic City after a batch of taffy was tainted by the waters of an ocean flood in 1883. Head to James Salt Water Taffy on the Boardwalk to sample some of the local candy. 

Spend some of the cash you saved on your cheap flight to Atlantic City at one of the slot machines along the boardwalk! Known as “the Las Vegas of the East”, Atlantic City is a shore-side gambler’s paradise with its plethora of casinos and gaming establishments. Stop into the Trump Taj Mahal or the Tropicana before your return Atlantic City flight to cash in your chips!

Stones engraved with the names of each Miss America crowned since the inception of the pageant in 1921 line Michigan Avenue, and a statue of Bert Parks, the pageant’s longtime TV host, stands just outside of the offices of the Miss America Organization. 

The boardwalk and other famous sights from Atlantic City may seem familiar due to their cameos in some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters. Two of Paul Newman’s most notable credits, “The Color of Money” and “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” either mention or have scenes integral to story taking place in Atlantic City. “Beaches”, the beloved chick flick, prominently features a curly-topped Bette Midler and Atlantic City’s boardwalk as the site where the two main characters meet. Rent “Empire Records”, “Ocean’s 11” or “Rounders” for some Atlantic City scenes.
