  • A must do. All round win. Historical gem that can be enjoyed by family, friends, and lovers. There's even free parking both on the street and small parking lot. Area is safe enough for your person or vehicle.
  • Great place. Educational on light house and Atlantic City history. Great view from the top. Worth the 228 steps!!
  • I got to know the significance and history of the lighthouse. Definitely the staff was very knowledgeable. I think it is worthy to spend about an hour looking at the ocean and the city.
  • Bud the docent at the top of the lighthouse was a wealth of information. Well worth the stair climb up to meet him.
  • Well kept, very friendly staff. I loved e everything about​ this. Awesome views from the top, which has a 360 caged deck to look from.

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.
