More info: The Resorts Casino Hotel is located directly on the Atlantic City boardwalk and is home to Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville entertainment complex including Atlantic City’s only year-round beach bar. The Steel Pier Amusement Park is located across from the hotel.
The four-mile long Boardwalk at Atlantic City is lined with bars, restaurants, shops, and nostalgic carnival-style games. The Boardwalk connects many of the big Atlantic City hotels and casinos, making it convenient and easy to get from place to place.
Atlantic City inspired the U.S. version of the board game Monopoly, especially the street names. Since 1921, Atlantic City has been the home of the Miss America pageant. In 1976, New Jersey voters legalized casino gambling in Atlantic City. The first casino opened two years later.
