With beaches, a boardwalk and slots, this city plays hard around the clock.

From the 4-mile-long Boardwalk to the nearly 12 square miles of sandy beaches, Atlantic City has long drawn crowds looking to bask in all kinds of entertainment. Spend your day relaxing by the ocean or exploring the nearby amusement parks before heading off to the shops and restaurants. AC is also a place that’s as active by day as it is at night, making it just as popular with beach-going families as it is with those looking to hit the slots and shows.
