  • Took my grandson here, and, it was just okay. There isn't much to see or do even for a young child. It did, however, provide about an hour of entertainment.  more »

  • A beautiful setting for the family. We enjoyed the lovely hands on aquarium, restaurants, and the great shopping. We had a peaceful relaxing afternoon.
  • Great spot too fish catch some rays out Judy hang out.
  • Historic Gardner's Basin is right on the water and it is beautiful. There are many restaurants and a few bars. You may also take tours such as fishing, whale and dolphin watching and parasailing. The Atlantic City Aquarium is also located here. Everything is accessible by either driving here or you may also pull right up to the dock in your boat.
  • Hidden, quiet corner of A.C. with bay & inlet views and a handful of bars/restaurants with great menu selection
  • Gardiner's Basin is a hidden Atlantic City gem. It has a great aquarium, several outstanding places to eat and lots of unique little shops.

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.
