Top Rated Attractions in Atlantic City

Search Radius (Miles)
Absecon Lighthouse

Situated on Atlantic City's eastern coastline, the Absecon Lighthouse has been assisting wandering vessels since its establishment in 1856. Standing at a spectacular height of 171 feet (52 meters), it is quite easily the tallest structure of its kind in New Jersey. This splendid piece of 19th-century architecture is made up of a mesh of granite slabs that lend its walls an eye-catching sheen that still exists today. First lit in 1857, the lighthouse retains its original George Meade-designed Fresnel lens that at the peak of its powers propagated signals up to 36.1 kilometers (22.4 miles). Decommissioned in 1933, its lens shines brightly to this day.

Lucy the Elephant

This proud, well-loved historical monument has been delighting visitors since its conception in 1881. South Atlantic City landowner James Vincent de Paul Lafferty, Jr. had this mammoth beast constructed as a way to attract visitors and prospective buyers to his properties. Lucy stands 65 feet (20 meters) high and contains many rooms inside. It also sports a spiral staircase to the top of the edifice. Check out the website for an in-depth account of Lucy's long history.

Tuckerton Seaport

Tuckerton Seaport is a testament to the rich architectural history of New Jersey. Various recreated buildings and structures line the coastline of this recreated fishing village including Tucker's Island Lighthouse, Joy Dayton's Sawmill, and Jay C. Parker's Decoy Carving Shop. There are several restaurants that get into the action as well, paying tribute to the heritage of the Jersey Shore Baymen. The Museum offers lunch at the restaurant Skeeter's with a gift shop located within. Numerous educational programs are on offer as well.

Steel Pier

Atlantic City's Steel Pier proudly stands as New Jersey's amusement park headquarters. Opened it 1898, it suffered a devastating fire in 1982 but reopened, fully renovated in 1993. Check out the giddy, stomach-churning excitement to be had on rides like Pumpkin Wheel, Log Flume, Grand Prix Go Karts, Dragon Jets, Crazy Mouse and much, much more. The International Food Court will keep you well-fed, but be wise as to how much time you wait in between eating and going on a ride!

Atlantic City Aquarium

The Atlantic City Aquarium is an excellent place to explore the deep blue sea and the fascinating marine life. This aquarium houses over 100 diverse species from the sea world; some of the exotic species shown here are the live corals, the Loggerhead Sea Turtles and more. There are various exhibits and exciting activities that take place here such as watching a live diver feed various exotic sharks and other marine lives. Besides, the center has various rental spaces that can accommodate every kind of event.

Ventnor Beach

Located just one mile from Atlantic City, Ventnor Beach is a premier getaway destination for those looking to escape the fast-paced life of the Boardwalk and its casinos. This beach is surrounded by a residential community, but visitors with a "beach tag" are welcomed as well. These tags can be purchased from kiosks near the beach.
