Atlantic City, New Jersey, is a vibrant seaside destination with many activities for the young and young at heart. Climb the 228 steps of the third-tallest lighthouse in the U.S., Absecon Lighthouse. Stroll the 5 miles of the world-famous Boardwalk with shops, eateries, and casinos along the way. Take a ride on the air-conditioned Wheel that soars above the beach and Boardwalk on historic Steel Pier. Sit back and let Atlantic City Cruises show your group the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean and the many pods of dolphins that love these waters. There’s plenty of group-friendly entertainment by the New Jersey seashore!
Try your luck at one of the nine amazing casinos along the Boardwalk and Marina District. (Who knows, someone in your group could become a millionaire!) The casinos have many delectable dining options that fit small or large groups and all types of budgets. Resorts Casino Hotel, Atlantic City’s first casino, has a Margaritaville-themed casino with the only beach bar open all year-round, LandShark Bar & Grille. Plus, there are many local-favorite dining establishments that can accommodate smaller groups and have bus parking.
In addition to glittering casinos, Atlantic City has plenty of culture and attractions to share with groups. Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall houses the largest musical instrument in the world. More powerful than a dozen orchestras, the Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall Pipe Organ can both whisper and thunder into the 5.5 million cubic feet of air space in the main arena. This free attraction can be seen and heard in operation every weekday for half-hour concerts and tours from May through August at noon, as well as part of the entertainment for some shows. Follow the history of Atlantic City with a walk-through of the Atlantic City Historical Museum and the African American Historical Museum and tour the 48 blocks of vibrant and powerful murals. Head to the Steel Pier to find rides, The Wheel, skyline helicopter rides, several bars, and a seafood feast in their crab house with special group pricing and, of course, casinos! Want to get out on the water? Groups also love the Dolphin Cruise and Tiki Boat Tours with Captain Jeff George aboard Atlantic City Cruises.
Any time of year is the right time to visit and there’s always something new to see and do with new development, attractions, restaurants, and events. For example, Steel Pier is celebrating 125 years of fun this year and Showboat Hotel Atlantic City just opened the largest indoor/outdoor water park in the U.S., which is connected to the Lucky Snake Arcade & Raceway.
