A Day to Honor and Celebrate

January 07, 2019

As Martin Luther King Jr. Day approaches, many of us will take time out to honor the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s life and legacy, and will also celebrate with various events around the city. Listed here are a few of our favorite ways to mark the holiday. First, don’t miss a visit to Atlantic City’s Civil Rights Garden. Located at the corner of Pacific Avenue and Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard, the garden is a calm oasis of Gingko trees, plants and flowers, all sharing space with winding pathways, public sculpture, and granite columns.

Next, explore the city with a self-guided walking tour. Make it extra easy by downloading the “GPSmyCity: Walks in 1K+ Cities” app. You’ll find a detailed walking tour map, along with information and images for your desired attractions. Working offline, the app guides you from one destination to the next, so you can enjoy touring Atlantic City at your own pace. Lastly, for the iconic Atlantic City experience, try the Splash of Atlantic City Tour. You’ll get the down low on the Miss America pageant, boardwalk, and saltwater taffy, along with tidbits about events crucial to making Atlantic City what it is today.
