Atlantic City, New Jersey: Casinos and Carnival Rides Lining Historical Beachside Boardwalk
No trip to Atlantic City is complete without a stroll along its signature boardwalk, which stretches for 6 miles along New Jersey-s eastern coast. Originally built in 1870 to keep sand out of hotel lobbies, the boardwalk grew in popularity as a place where you could drink and gamble during Prohibition without much trouble from the police, as depicted in HBO-s Boardwalk Empire. The boardwalk is still popular for its casinos, but it-s family-friendly, too; visitors are just as inclined to sit at the beach or stop at one of the many carnival rides.
On the boardwalk, it-s worth it to check out the Absecon Lighthouse, which is more than 150 years old. It-s possible to climb its 228 steps to the top, which features sweeping views of the city skyline and the sea.
