Atlantic City is home to the largest boardwalk in the country, as well as award-winning spas and streets dotted with public art. Here are some fun things to do, see and eat while in town.
It’s easy to get enthralled inside, enjoying all the fun that the casinos have to offer, but make a point to get outside and walk on the Boardwalk, which holds the titles as the oldest and longest in the country. Stretching more than four miles, the Boardwalk is lined by more than 90 shops and restaurants. Be sure to sample Fralinger’s salt water taffy, an Atlantic City staple. The Steel Pier is another must-visit, featuring rides, games and the 227-foot-tall Observation Wheel.
Get the best view of the city’s skyline by taking an exhilarating parasail ride off the coast. Founded in 2010, Atlantic City Parasail offers adventures all day, from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; guests soar up to 500 feet above the Atlantic Ocean.
Atlantic City is teeming with art. Take a walking tour or hop on the Jitney to see the more than 60 murals that line the city’s streets — most of which have been created by local artists as part of the 48 Blocks Mural Program from the Atlantic City Arts Foundation.
Rest and Reset
Spas of America has voted the Exhale Spa and Bathhouse at Ocean Casino Resort the top spot for relaxation in the state. The facility’s menu entices with facials, massages and body treatments; a Himalayan salt grotto and Zen lounge complete the spa package.
Indulge your sweet tooth with a visit to Bar 32, a bean-to-bar chocolate shop in the heart of the city’s trending Orange Loop neighborhood. Chocolate-infused desserts and cocktails are crafted in-house using Tanzanian cacao. Sample local favorites like the flourless chocolate cake, thick-cut bacon dipped in ganache and the spiked chocolate martini.
