From its formative years in the late 19th century to its golden period of the 1920's and 30's, Atlantic City has always evolved with the intent of attracting visitors. Continuing to cater to holiday-makers, Atlantic City makes every effort to attract and entertain its guests! Known as the "Las Vegas of the East", Atlantic City offers resort-casinos, endless entertainment, and a lively nightlife. To escape the hubbub, stretch out on its beaches, dine in its quieter cafes or visit its museums or aquariums.
Atlantic City's close proximity to several major East Coast cities makes it easy to reach via car, bus, train or plane. Larger groups arriving from one of the nearby cities may consider hiring a limousine, which can be comparatively priced and starts the trip in style. Though Atlantic City holidays can be enjoyed year round, winter's cool weather means that most people elect to visit during late spring and summer to enjoy the beaches. Atlantic City's famous four-mile long boardwalk - the oldest in the United States - gives access to many of the city's hotels, casinos, shops, and restaurants, and makes walking the best way to get around, though taxis are also available. Atlantic City´s time zone is GMT-5.
Gambling is big business in Atlantic City - with 12 big name casinos offering gambling, restaurants, shops and nightlife, many visitors spend a significant portion of their trip exploring the different resorts. Beyond the casinos, the adjacent long stretch of Atlantic Ocean beach offers sunbathing, swimming and a quiet place to stroll. There is also a beachside aquarium and several small museums for culture buffs - who should keep an eye out for concerts - as many casinos often attract world famous stars to perform. Finally, pick up a box of the city´s famous salt water taffy to sugarcoat your holiday!
