On spring break and getting a bit of cabin fever? Looking for a quick easy day trip for this holiday weekend or another weekend? Well, guess what? Atlantic City’s Steel Pier is open!
If you’ve been wondering how the shore and the boardwalks are doing since the Sandy storm, go have a drive and take a look. Even though our calendars say spring, many venues are also open in the winter months, including boardwalk businesses. The famed Steel Pier on the Atlantic City Boardwalk came through Hurricane Sandy unscathed and is ready to debut eight new rides in 2013. Due to the hurricane’s storm track, Atlantic City suffered minimal damage. People mistakenly believe that the damaged boardwalks and amusement piers they saw on broadcast news programs were in Atlantic City, which is not true. Atlantic City is open for business.
In addition to the Steel Pier opening, the Atlantic City Boardwalk is bustling with activity. As spring approaches, more people are biking, running and strolling along the Boardwalk. At night, “Duality,” the 3D sound and light show draws people to Historic Boardwalk Hall for a free show.
