In fact, there are so many of the best things to do in Atlantic City that you’ll likely want to stay longer.
Not only that, but it’s also a popular waterfront park hosting a wide gamut of attractions for you to enjoy.

The Atlantic City of Experience is another area of interest. Housed at the Atlantic City Free Library, this is a collection of items and research materials telling the history of how Atlantic City is developed. It’s all pretty interesting, especially if you’re interested in the development of the city.

Long ago, James V. Lafferty built this 65-foot high elephant made of wood and tin for us all to enjoy. It has seen most of the history of Atlantic City and has gone through different transformations, too — a summer home, a tavern, an observation deck — to now being protected in the National Park Registry of Historical Landmarks.
