Yachts For Sale In Atlantic City
Developed as a resort city since the latter 1800s, Atlantic City has had its ups and downs. Located on a barrier island of coastal South Jersey with Absecon Bay to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to east, and wide white sand beaches, Atlantic City was initially envisioned as a seaside health resort. Large scale tourism was not possible until 1854 when the Camden to Atlantic City Railway service opened the barrier island to tourism and development. The first road was built in 1870, along with the first boardwalk, designed to keep the massive beachfront hotels and railway cars free of beach sand.

Today, the Atlantic City Boardwalk is 60-ft wide and 6 miles long. The late 1800s were a period of tremendous growth and real estate boom, as the wealthy built 2-3 story beach cottages, and amusement piers started popping up. Now a National Historic Landmark, Lucy the Elephant, a 6-story elephant built in 1881 to promote real estate sales and attract tourists to Atlantic City, is the oldest surviving roadside tourist attraction in America! A local ordinance kept hotels, restaurants, and shops on one side of the boardwalk and amusement piers on the other (oceanside). During the Roaring 20s, Atlantic City was the scene—a hedonistic playground for politicians, Mafia, and ordinary folk looking for a weekend escape. Prohibition was mostly unenforced, and the Boardwalk continued as the place to be seen during the 1930s – 40s. Looking for a way to extend tourism beyond the summer season, the Miss America Pageant got its start 1930-1935 and became synonymous with Atlantic City since Convention Hall became the venue in 1940.
Atlantic City’s oldest theme park and most successful family-oriented attraction is Steel Pier, opened in 1898. The 1000-ft pier located across from Hardrock Hotel & Casino, features 20+ rides and attractions, carnival games, fast food, snacks, and refreshment stands. Recently added is The Wheel, a 227-ft high Ferris-type wheel with 40 climate-controlled gondolas offering great views of the ocean and boardwalk cityscape. After WWII, with air travel making distant destinations possible for tourists, Atlantic City went into a decline. When the Casino Gambling Referendum passed in 1976, investors saw an opportunity to revitalize Atlantic City as an east coast gambling mecca to rival Las Vegas, Nevada. Atlantic City had a good run, with many glitzy, fantastical casinos and hotels lining the Boardwalk, but everything has its limitations; overdevelopment and competition from other states (CT, NY, PA) along with economic recessions, and downturns led to major hotel and casino failures. Today, under new ownership and management, the luxury casinos, hotels, and the Boardwalk has been renovated and revitalized.
