Adventure Sport Hotels in Atlantic City

Atlantic City, New Jersey, is usually referred to as a gambling town, but with a location on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, you’ll also find plenty of action away from the slot machines. A few of the resorts live up to the reputation of adventure sport hotels as they are more open to things for the active traveler to do.

Fly through the Air with a Stay at Caesar’s

Ride the Bull at Bally’s
The theme at Bally’s Atlantic City is “Center of the Action” and they take that motto seriously. The hotel is in the middle of the boardwalk and it definitely has a party atmosphere, especially at the Mountain Bar and the Wild Wild West. You’ll find plenty of adventure here with live country music and the Wild West Vixens dancing on the bar.

Cruise the Water to the Golden Nugget
The Golden Nugget Hotel in Atlantic City is directly across from the Farley State Marina. The marina is managed by Golden Nugget so guests reserve a slip at the same time they book a room, then avoid the traffic on the expressway and sail right into Atlantic City. If you prefer, you can even stay right on your boat and enjoy the marina’s amenities, such as the Wine & Wi-Fi Business Center, heated pool, and fire pit.

Guests of the Golden Nugget can also take advantage of the Atlantic City Waterfront Sculpture Walk that begins in front of the marina. This scenic trail winds around the landscape with benches and sculptures along the way.  Note that when it comes to the rooms in Atlantic City, all are pretty standard with suites at some of these adventure sport hotels. Rooms generally do not include extras such as breakfast and internet unless you book a package deal.
