History and Upcoming Events 

The Jersey Shore has a rich history that dates all the way back to the 1600s, but it became a popular tourist destination with the construction of its boardwalk in Atlantic City in 1870. Originally the boardwalk was built simply to separate the sand from getting into hotels and railroad cars, but it quickly evolved into a tourist attraction that drew visitors from around the world.

With the addition of luxury resorts, amusement park-style rides, carnival games, eating and drinking establishments, and casinos, Atlantic City quickly became the most popular destination on the Jersey Shore. Families brought their children to see the bright carnival lights, couples came to enjoy romantic strolls on the beach, and people from all over the world were eager to experience the excitement. 

Today there are many events at the Jersey Shore for people of all ages. During the month of August there is a regular farmer’s market, family fun nights, Monday night movies on the beach, funtastic Tuesdays, family movie night under the stars, dune walks, acoustic open mic nights, and much more.
