Atlantic City Neighborhoods

The Boardwalk

Seaside walkway where most of the action in Atlantic City happens. It’s attached to most of the casinos, restaurants, shops, and beach bars.

Marina and Gardner’s Basin

Bordering Absecon Bay, this is the jump-off point for water-based activities like deep-sea fishing, dolphin and whale watching, dinner cruises, and parasailing.


Atlantic City is only a few miles wide, but the area between the Boardwalk and the bay is where visitors can find less touristy restaurants, hotels, and shopping options.
