Why New Jersey Family Beach Vacations Are So Popular

Atlantic City, once home to mobsters and bootleggers, is most famously known for the Boardwalk. Along the wooden footway are a plethora of casinos, bars, restaurants and performance theater. Laying so gently along this is the pale yellow beach which radiates the sun’s glare so flawlessly. At nighttime, the lights shine bright, the food is delicious, and ice cream doesn’t stop getting served no matter what.
Summer is almost here, but you may want an early vacation from work. This city is a remarkable once in a lifetime experience. Some say New Jersey has a history longer than New York. The traditional 19th-century wooden architecture smell of times gone by while the interiors of the shops and restaurants are similar to upscale NYC. Adults come for the sun, and the restaurants and the kids come for the ice cream and sand. Atlantic City is still what it always was, a diamond in the rough.
