    Default Atlantic City Boardwalk

    Facts About the Atlantic City Boardwalk
    1. The first Boardwalk opened Sunday, June 26, 1870.

    2. This was the first Boardwalk to be constructed in the United States.

    3. There were various Boardwalks constructed in Atlantic City:

    1. 2nd opened about June 1, 1880
    2. 3rd opened about June 1, 1884
    3. 4th was dedicated May 10, 1890
    4. 5th was dedicated July 8, 1896

    4. The current length of the Atlantic City Boardwalk is a little over 4 miles (200 feet short of 4 and one-eighth miles).


    5. The combined length of the current Atlantic City and Ventnor Boardwalks is approximately 5.75 miles.

    6. The historic length of the Boardwalk, before the 1944 hurricane, was about 7 miles and it extended from Atlantic City, through Ventnor and Margate into Longport.
    The Atlantic City boardwalk is great for a walk on a nice summer's evening. Not only is the exercise good for you, you will not lose any money. (unless you have a hole in your pocket )

    This is supposed to be the first boardwalk in the world actually - not just America and it is the longest boardwalk in the world I think. I have to look up the facts again.

    Welcome to aboutnewjersey.

    You can always visit when you have the chance.

    Although it may seem difficult for some to believe, AC does have some other things to do besides gambling. (The boardwalk and shows are two things.)
