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!
The World War I Memorial is a historic site that is a sad reminder of the ghastly effects of wars on the lives of people. Included in the National Register of Historic Places, it was erected in 1922.
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.
