“most expensive in monopoly for a reason!”

Aaahh, the Atlantic City Boardwalk. It is the famed promenade known for the roaring sea and dozens of confection shops and amusements. It is the cherished blue property of the most popular board game in the world. It is truly the walk that inspired many more, but can never be duplicated.Surprisingly, the most famous walkway on the East Coast was not built to be anything more than a solution to keeping the sand out of the ritzy beachfront hotels and the Camden and Atlantic’s railroad passenger cars. A fed-up railroad conductor and hotel owner first petitioned to the city council in 1870, asking that a mile-long footwalk be established. 

With the legalization of gambling, hotels, stores and piers along the Boardwalk started to make like deeds in a MONOPOLY game and changed hands rapidly. The boards stood by as out-of-town bigwigs came, saw and invested. This investing has prospered into the new century, with the Boardwalk ever by its side.Over a century after its emergence and evolution, the Boardwalk still stands as a historic American symbol of good times and rich culture and remains one of the best boardwalks anywhere. Some may still believe that Atlantic City’s future rides on the roll of a dice. They just might want to take a stroll on that timeless Boardwalk to realize this city is going nowhere but up. Place your bets!

The Atlantic City Boardwalk has been a city institution since 1870. Between the shopping at Pier Shops at Caesars, the rides at Steel Pier, and the multiple museums and memorials, the boardwalk is seven miles of attractions for the whole family. Although Hurricane Sandy did a number on it, most of the boardwalk is now up and ready for business this summer.

There's a few cool things to check out when visiting Atlantic City. There's an indoor fountain located at the end of Caesar's Pier, and every hour there's a ten minute show. Personally, I'd recommend grabbing a beer at Back Bay Ale House and just watch the boats in the inlet at sunset on the patio.

This was a great day trip, plenty to see in a small area. Head to the beach ($1.00 per hour) parking, but the beach was clean, and plenty of police, and help if needed. In the downtown area, parking is $10-$25 4-8 hours depending on what you are looking to do, but you will have to pay for parking. Getting over to Atlantic city from the Philadelphia area you will have to pay for tolls going and coming $3.75 each way (1 for $3.00 and 1 for $.075) if you come via the Expressway. I planned to visit Bass Pro Shop, and if you use their parking lot, you'll pay $10 for 4 hours, but If you purchase more than $30 in the store, your parking is free, so if you're going to pay for parking, it's a deal. The area now is a little depressed, with businesses closing, and lots of real estate for sale, but still worth the trip if you've never been.
