ENTERTAINMENT CAPITAL OF THE JERSEY SHORE
WELCOME TO ATLANTIC CITY
HOME TO THE BMM CONVENTION 2022
Atlantic City is a resort city on New Jersey’s Atlantic coast that’s known for its many casinos, wide beaches and iconic Boardwalk. Established in the 1800s as a health resort, today the city is dotted with glitzy high-rise hotels and nightclubs.
In addition to gambling at slot machines and table games, the casinos offer spa treatments, performances by famous comedy and music acts, and high-end shopping.
Atlantic City inspired the U.S. version of the board game Monopoly, especially the street names. Since 1921, Atlantic City has been the home of the Miss America pageant.
In 1976, New Jersey voters legalized casino gambling in Atlantic City, and the first casino opened in 1978.
