Atlantic City, the largest city on the Jersey Shore, is most famous for its casinos, giving it a reputation as the ‘Vegas of the East Coast’. It perhaps lacks the glitz and glamor of its more renowned cousin in Nevada, but the slot machines are still popular enough to distract many from the lovely beaches.

    Take a stroll along the boardwalk and see the remarkable array of beachfront hotels, ranging from the ultra-modern to the stylishly retro. Stop by Steel Pier for some funfair thrills or the Historic Gardner’s Basic for a more peaceful experience.
