Majority of the places on the Jersey Shore are vacation spots for families, however Atlantic City is the perfect place for adults. You can still bring the family, however the crowd is mostly 21+.
Atlantic City is known for its casinos, beaches, shopping, and boardwalk. It is known as the “Gambling Capital of the East Coast,” due to it being home to twelve major casinos. Fun fact: Atlantic City is used as the setting for the popular board game Monopoly! It is where the Miss America Pageant is held every year, and it is directly across from the southern-most point of LBI and is always lit up like a Christmas tree. Atlantic City is known worldwide for always being open and operating. It shocked the world when Governor Chris Christie CLOSED Atlantic City during Hurricane Sandy- but it was for good reason!
