Serving as a lively link between city and sea, the Atlantic City Boardwalk stretches for more than four miles along Absecon Island on the famed Jersey Shore. First constructed in 1878, this American icon separates the ocean beach from a variety of venues, ranging from retail shops and museums to casinos, boardwalk hotels and restaurants, all with that singular Atlantic City flair.
The boardwalk's herringbone-patterned layout provides the perfect surface for two-wheeled vehicles, and a leisurely bicycle ride provides the easiest way of making your way through all the hustle and bustle. There's no need to bring your own. as rentals can be found all along the boardwalk.
Atlantic City beaches are free and open to all. It's just a short walk to the ocean from any of the AC boardwalk hotels. There's never a cover charge, so any fine day will give you the opportunity to make some waves.
Atlantic City is known for diversity. There's so much here to see and do, you'll barely have time for the slots.
Steel Pier houses a family-style amusement park with a number of attractions and food to suit the entire family. If shopping is your passion, head down to The Pier Shops at Caesars. While go-kart fans will find the right track on the Central Pier, the Garden Pier offers both the Atlantic City Historical Museum and the Atlantic City Arts Museum for those in need of a culture fix.
As you amble along the boardwalk, it won't be long before you encounter one of the many casino entrances. Deciding which to visit first could be the hardest part. From south to north, you will have at your disposal the Tropicana, Caesars, Bally's, Wild Wild West and the Trump Taj Mahal.
After an absence of nearly 10 years, the Miss America Pageant has returned to its original home. If you're in town during the middle of September, stop by Boardwalk Hall and have a look for yourself.
Take a stroll in the ocean air and enjoy live music as you sample more than 100 handpicked varieties of wine and champagne at various boardwalk locations. This September event will satisfy all your senses.
You are in the midst of all the action in Atlantic City Boardwalk, with direct access to casinos, beaches and piers. Revel is a highly sophisticated and fairly new addition to the area. Complete with nightclub and 11 fine dining restaurants, there is also a sky garden for guests to take in the luxurious surroundings. For those who prefer their lodgings minus major indulgences, the Days Inn Atlantic City Waterfront offers a more modest and comfortable experience.
Although a maritime climate keeps Atlantic City's temperatures on the moderate side, visitors must remember that AC is still a northeastern resort area. Temperatures average in the 20s during the winter and summer temperatures usually have highs in the 80s. The summer months offer the widest array of things to see and do for visitors to the Boardwalk, but the indoor attractions ensure that, regardless of when you visit, there will be more than enough to keep you entertained.
Pleasantly surprised with hotel. Good location but access to it can be difficult with the roads being closed close to it. Front desk was great! Room was dated but neat and clean with a lot of space. View from room was terrific. It is like a 30 foot window to look at the ocean. Bring your own pillow as the ones there were terrible. Very thin with basically nothing in them. Staff very friendly and helpful as this is my first visit to AC in many years.
Everything was great except after returning to hotel from a night out they had a water main break on I think the 3rd floor which left the elevator area flooded and no running water in the rooms. But to the hotels credit they did reimburse everyone for the nights stay. I would stay there again.....
I loved the stay, will be back soon! Very nice and clean room.
My friend and I came here for the Fantasia and Kem's show. I usually stay at either The Borgata or Harrahs but the prices were ridiculous. TRYP was expensive as well but not as the others. The bedroom was toasty warm but it had a strong bleach smell. The other comforter was not ironed, otherwise I had no complaints. We did not go to the continental breakfast because we woke up late.The front desk staff were nice and professional. I would come back to TRYP and I would recommend it to others.
