Disappointed, but atleast I can say I've Been there.

We were vacationing in Seaside Heights, NJ over the weekend. Decided to spend an afternoon in Atlantic city. We have never been and heard good things. Started at Ceasars and walked to the boardwalk. We went in the off season but man was it rough. The boardwalk itself was dirty, buildings falling apart, people selling/panhandling, and just over all not good. Shops were basic and the food was typical carnival food. Even apart of the boardwalk itself was broken. It got worse when the sun started to go down. I'm thankful it was just an afternoon (mostly in the casinos) and I didnt plan a whole vacation here. I also couldn't imagine bring children here. It's like the worst parts of Las Vegas and the worst parts of a beach town mixed together.

Disgusting, dirty beach with homeless people and drug addicts sleeping on the boardwalk at night.

Disgusting, dirty, so many people smoking dope on the boardwalk, homeless people laying on the boardwalk at night, panhandling is ridiculous and the boardwalk is extremely filthy. The sand on the beach looks black with cigarette butts and trash all over the beach. Homeless people living under the boardwalk. The people who live here need to be eradicated. Boardwalk is NOT safe at night. I do not recommend this place to anyone who is considering spending time or vacationing here. Go 2 hours south to Ocean City, Maryland!

Somewhere between Myrtle Beach and Vegas
Jun 2021 • Solo
I just moved to NJ and heard all about Atlantic City so I wanted to check out the world famous boardwalk. I’m not really sure what I expected….I guess being from the Carolinas I expected it to be something like Myrtle Beach but it wasn’t really like that at all. Mostly tacky souvenir shops and carnival food stands mixed in with casinos. Some of the casinos are neat and have cool flashy decor like Vegas. I also heard you have to try the Salt Water Taffy. It was really good! I bought a bag to take home. They have some cool restaurant options like Margaritaville and Wahlburgers. I really only visited during the day but I hear it can get rough at night. It’s a nice stroll if nothing else.

No Class rundown City and boardwalk.

Attended the Atlantic City airshow August 2021. The air show was nothing but spectacular. As far as the boardwalk, the run down casinos, the filthy streets, the skyrocketing prices of everything, and the poor disrespectful attitudes of the
law enforcement it has a lot to be desired. Trash cans overstuffed and the smell of marijuana overwhelming on the boardwalk. I was never so disgusted and disappointed in my life. I went by myself but I would encourage families with kids not to take them. If you have any morals you will have to do a lot of explaining. Even the greenery on the beach dunes was unkept and sloppy looking.
I honestly can't think of one good thing to say about my trip. Was so excited to get out for a day trip after being locked up for over a year due to covid.
Next year I will plan on seeing the airshow elsewhere because it sure as heck won't be in Atlantic City. The Dump on the East coast.

Needs some love

Depends what you are looking for. Of course there are the casinos that line the boardwalk, and the boardwalk provides something something else to do if you dont want to just gamble the whole time. Plenty of shops and food along the way, as well as beach access. Needs some TLC, areas are very worn out, litter. The beach is free and the restroom are actually modern and clean, very nice. The sand though tends to have litter in areas, not well kept, and even broken glass (although glass isnt allowed.) Definitely better boardwalks and beaches on east coast, but if you want to check out the history, casinos, etc, it adds another dimension.

Tired

The Atlantic City Boardwalk is so famous but it was a bit of a disappointment. No energy - dirty and tired. Lots of empty buildings. I hope it can experience a rebirth in the future.

Just say NO. Seemed like a good idea as we traveled from NYC down the coast to MD. Dirty, gross, slimy ewe……. Horrid frozen food/ over priced restaurants.
