Atlantic City’s Action-Packed Beach

Atlantic City draws millions of visitors annually to enjoy its world-class casino resorts, headline entertainers and famous Boardwalk. Atlantic City's signature summer event, the Atlantic City Air Show, "Thunder over the Boardwalk," takes place in August above both the city and the ocean. The beach provides the best view for this free event.

What's often overlooked by those unfamiliar with Atlantic City is its beach, which was recently ranked one of the top 10 beaches in the United States and praised for its hip, new image. In summer, beachgoers enjoy volleyball, sailing, snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaking and surfing. Only feet away from the beach are amusement piers and a Boardwalk that buzzes with activity all day long and into the night, adding to the excitement. As one of America's oldest seaside resorts, Atlantic City continues to be one of the best vacation destinations in America.
