The Historic Boardwalk
Originally built in 1870 and the first in American history, an 8’ wide wooden foot-walk was constructed for one purpose – to keep the sand out of the hotel lobbies and train cars. In 1889, a devastating hurricane hit the island and with most of the city under 6’ of water, the boardwalk was destroyed.
Today, the approximately 6 mile long, 60’ wide boardwalk, is planked in a herringbone pattern on top of a concrete and steel substructure, with steel railings along one side to keep
walkers, bikers, and rolling wicker chair riders from falling to the beach below.
What makes the experience of gaming in Atlantic City so much different than other world-renowned casinos found in such places as Las Vegas and Connecticut?
First and foremost, a favorite attraction for tourists is the beach, and the many beach front hotel rooms located on ‘casino row.’ Another highlight of getting your game on in AC, would be the infamous boardwalk, which allows guests to scamper from casino to casino, by way of fresh ocean air. Neither of which are attainable at Casino’s NOT located on oceanfront property.
AC boasts a modest 12 casinos, each offering a unique theme and flair. The newest gaming resort, Revel, opened in 2012 and brings a theatrical setting, social aspects of a party, high fidelity gaming, and unbeatable entertainment. Upcoming performers at the Revel Ovation Hall in 2013 include such celeb’s as Rihanna & Alicia Keys. In 2012, Revel featured performers such as Kanye West in three New Year’s weekend shows, along with Beyonce, who kicked off the official grand opening weekend of this $2.4 billion dollar entertainment resort.
