Atlantic City

Trip Planner USA  /  New Jersey  /  Jersey Shore  /  Atlantic City

America's Favorite Playground

The gambling capital of the east coast, Atlantic City is best known for its numerous casinos, colorful boardwalk, and beach. The resort town's famous boardwalk, opened in 1870, was the first of its kind in the United States. It was the place to see and be seen in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and was a center of Prohibition-era debauchery. Though some of its glamour has faded, the boardwalk provides access to the sandy beach, major attractions, and extravagant hotels for those on vacation. Downtown is packed with thoroughly modern facilities, but the area's historical landmarks and museum provide a glimpse into Atlantic City's storied past. In the build up to your vacation in Atlantic City, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our United States itinerary website .

Where to stay in Atlantic City

If you’re in the mood to splurge on vacation, stay close to the gambling action at one of Atlantic City’s luxurious hotel-casinos. Many of these towering buildings have their own restaurants, nightclubs, and spas, as well as stunning ocean views. Motels farther away from the boardwalk are much cheaper. Inns and bed and breakfasts also tend to be farther from the bustle, but offer a charm and homey feel you can’t find in the area’s mega-hotels.
