The Steel Pier: Family Fun in a Historical Setting

September 12, 2016

A classic attraction with a fascinating history, and a must see for any Atlantic City getaway, the Steel Pier remains an ideal choice for family fun. With over 25 rides ranging from extreme to traditional, and including rides for the little ones, there is no better way to spend the day. The Steel Pier is home to a variety of excellent family food selections, whether you’re in the mood for traditional boardwalk food or want to sample something new.


It was built by the Steel Pier Company, and since its opening in 1898, has hosted such entertainment powerhouses as The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, and “The Jazz Singer” Al Jolson, Bill Haley and the Comets, and Diana Ross and the Supremes. Once heralded as the “Showplace of the Nation,” it has changed ownership several times, but remains in operation as a successful amusement venue, and is still one of the most popular attractions for family vacations.
