    AC BOARDWALK
    Writing this while I'm still in AC. Almost switched locations due to the poor reviews. Been here 3 days not one person asked for money. Remarked to my wife on how clean the boardwalk and beach was. Out until 11p to 1am with no issues on the boardwalk. Some Marijuana smell but it is legal here. Planning another trip soon. Stayed at Resorts location was great, price was right, room and surroundings were clean. Only issue was the distance from rooms to self parking with luggage. Would stay again.

    Don’t come with a closed mind. You’ll miss out on the fun.
    Fun place. Exactly what you’d expect. Casinos, restaurants, bars, beach, boardwalk, tourist shops selling cheap stuff, people gambling, partying, dancing, drinking alcohol, smoking weed ( who cares about weed anymore, I mean really, get over your weed hating selves). If you’re not ok with any one of those things then this isn’t the place for you. You probably should go back to church.

    Waiting for a change
    The Boardwalk seems to have changed a bit in recent years. Closed businesses, stores and restaurants. The sulfuric smell of marihuana in the air. Intoxicated people. There are still signs of past glory, beautiful monuments and buildings. The view of the beach. You can go for a walk but watch your surroundings. It is not the first time Boardwalk is going through some rough times. It needs to reinvent itself again... 3 stars are due to historical sentiments. It is an interesting but a sad place now.

    Mini getaways with my husband
    I have been going to Atlanta city for the last 30 years. I loved the ocean. Boardwalk and restaurants. The last couple of years the boardwalk has been really dirty and run down. There are a lot of homeless people. People leave litter on the beach, I would like to see improvements now that Covid is over and people are back to work. People need to care about the environment and clean up after themselves. I will continue to go to the Jersey Shore as I have great memories there.

    A nice quick getaway
    I came to Atlantic City Boardwalk about ten years ago. They cleaned it up a lot compared to ten years ago. There are shops and restaurants, and on the pier, there is a small amusement park with some thrilling rides. I biked the boardwalk from one end to the other, and it was safe and about 10 KM long. The beach in this area is lovely. I was amazed.

    Okay
    Boardwalk is very outdated with old stores many of which still don’t have air conditioners. Everything, what is further down the Tropicana, looks abandoned. Too many certain kind of people hanging around. Sometimes it’s scary to walk after the dusk. The boardwalk tram service ends up at 9pm. You will be lucky if you catch the last one after 9pm. With people paying $10 for a day rides and who plan to go to a night concerts could be a dilemma how to return back to the hotel if your hotel is far enough to walk.

    Impressive Boardwalk
    The boardwalk at Atlantic City is impressive with so much to see and do. There is a huge choice for food and drink as there are multiple cafes, snack bars, restaurants all along the boardwalk. There is also the pier with it's many attractions and rides including a big wheel, all are lit up at night. Well worth a visit.

It was a lovely trip. I walked the Boardwalk and hit the 99 cent store. Chock full of bargains. Also went to the Resorts Casino. Gambled a little. Their VIP Room is awesome. Wonderful buffet.

Very large hotel with casinos foods onsite. Elevator is super fast. Has self check in and check out options. Right next to the Boardwalk. Convenient. Tall buildings can see sunrise inside, even on a foggy day.

Very pleasant walk in the evening, morning and mid day. The walk was a lot cleaner than it has been in recent years. Loved it.

We are staying further south and visited for the afternoon. Everyone should visit once (for 1/2 day) but stay in Ocean City or points South. It's an easy drive (less than 30 miles from Sea Isle City), parking was $10, and we enjoyed walking around the boardwalk, walking along the beach, and taking the little tram that costs $4. There are beautiful places to stay in Ocean City, Sea Isle City, Avalon, and Stone Harbor. Cape May is a must too. If time is limited, skip AC, it is seedy and run down. Parking tip- go to "Resorts" at the far (North) end of AC. There is a surface lot (safe) 1/2 block from the boardwalk $10. You pay inside the Rodeway Inn at the front desk.

My expectations of Atlantic City were far higher than I actually received. The streets are horrible, the buildings that are not casinos, are ugly. The city reminded me of Seattle, bums and beggars everywhere, trash everywhere and I would have been afraid to walk around. I will never return.
