Hotels in Atlantic City near Atlantic City Boardwalk

Atlantic City Boardwalk Introduction

The Atlantic City Boardwalk is one of the Jersey Shore’s most legendary spots. Dotted with casino hotels, souvenir shops, and mom-and-pop eateries, the boardwalk stretches over 4 miles and provides exceptional views of the Atlantic Ocean. Constructed in 1870, it was originally designed to prevent sand from entering the resort hotels. Later it became a tourist destination unto itself. The Miss America competition is held annually at Boardwalk Hall, a National Historic Landmark that seats over 14,000 visitors. It is also home to many annual concerts, sporting events, and themed festivals.

Hotels near Atlantic City Boardwalk

The Atlantic City Boardwalk is lined with primarily 3- and 4-star hotels, most featuring casinos and live entertainment. Other common amenities in the beachfront hotels include full-service spas, multiple fine dining options, and balconies with ocean views. There are also several budget options a couple of blocks away from the boardwalk. Summer is the busiest time of the year in Atlantic City, but visitors seeking cooler temperatures and lower room rates might want to come in the winter. Discounted rates are also available in the spring and fall, though it’s not unusual for the city to encounter rain.

Where to stay near Atlantic City Boardwalk

One of Atlantic City’s most distinctive neighborhoods is Ducktown, often referred to as “Little Italy.” Dating from the early 20th century, the district was named for the waterfront’s many duck houses, where poultry was raised. It’s home to many of the city’s most well known eateries, including several family-run Italian restaurants and bakeries. Boardwalk Hall and the St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Church are also located here. Several blocks away is the Marina District, which is home to the Atlantic City Aquarium, a couple of casino hotels, and many upscale boutiques and glitzy dining options.

Things to see near Atlantic City Boardwalk

Less than 6 miles southwest of Atlantic City is Margate City. The quaint seafaring town is home to many docks that fishermen spend their days on, but families are especially drawn to the area for its main attraction: Lucy the Elephant. Affectionately known as the world’s largest elephant, this decades-old, 6-story landmark is a popular tourist destination. For those strolling the boardwalk, the family-friendly Steel Pier is a longtime favorite that offers rides and games in a traditional carnival setting overlooking the water. The Absecon Lighthouse is set in northern Atlantic City and is the state’s tallest lighthouse.

How to get to Atlantic City Boardwalk

The Atlantic City Boardwalk is a primarily pedestrian-friendly strip. From north to south, it’s quite a walk, but there are other options. The Atlantic City Jitney operates 24 hours a day, and it stops along Pacific Avenue at different casino hotels and attractions throughout the city. Another option is the classic rolling chairs, which operators push down the boardwalk. Guests are charged by the block. The area’s closest airport is Atlantic City International, and it’s about 15 miles from the boardwalk. Via New Jersey Transit, accessible only through Philadelphia, the Atlantic City Rail Line is about an hour away.
