Four Top Summer Activities in Atlantic City
Atlantic City is without a doubt one of the most popular vacation destinations year round, and with good reason. There are plenty of activities there, from concerts, to fine dining, all the way to amusement parks. If you are heading there this summer however, you will need to make sure you are taking advantage of the exclusive activities. There are some things you can only do in Atlantic City during the summer, and there are some stories that will be exclusive to you. There are plenty of Atlantic City Shows, especially at the Borgata Atlantic City, but those shows can usually be seen year round, especially at many of the Atlantic City Hotels. Let’s take a look at four of the most popular summer activities and events that you simply will not want to miss!
Atlantic City Skyline Helicopter Tour
On the Atlantic City Boardwalk over at the Steel Pier you can find an incredible opportunity. Have you ever wanted to see the skyline from above? If so, now is your chance! You have the opportunity to board a helicopter from the end of the Steel Pier and take off into the air on an adventure that you will never, ever forget! This is an example of an activity that will give you the rush you are looking for without draining your wallet in its entirety. In addition, you can always go online and look for coupons which can save you up to half off your admission tickets. Here you will see the skyline in all its glory from the air, and you will be able to do so in great detail as the helicopter soars overhead, dips, and banks, giving you an unprecedented view and the photo opportunity of a lifetime. Most importantly, you will have an incredible story to take home to your friends and family once your summer vacation draws to a close. After all, not many people get to say they saw Atlantic City from the air, at least outside of a fast moving plane.
Presenting yet another summer only activity, at least in Atlantic City, we have parasailing! There is nothing quite like rocketing 500 feet in the air to see the water below, and the beautiful Atlantic City skyline. To be perfectly honest, this is one view that many beach goers and tourists are simply afraid to try out, but once you give it a shot, you’ll want to do it again and again! Best of all, no experience necessary!
Feel free to bring up to eleven of your friends (with reservations) and enjoy the roof of Atlantic City as you race across the surface of the water. Atlantic City Parasail is the ONLY parasailing destination in the area, and is a proud member of the Professional Association of Parasail Operators. You are perfectly safe in their hands and in their sails.
When you come to the beach, many people want to surf, or at least learn to surf, and why not? You see it all the time on movies, on television shows, and of course in person if you visit the right beaches. Unfortunately, not many people get the chance to learn, either because they do not have the time, or they do not have the equipment. If you’re up for a little learning, then you might want to have a look at the Atlantic City Surf School & Club which is located in the Greater Atlantic City Area. With hands on teaching techniques, they can accommodate you whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced student. If you are looking to impress your friends and family when you return from your trip, there is no better way than learning to surf! In addition to that, you’ll most definitely attain a great level of fitness if you continue to surf after the fact.
Golfing in Atlantic City
Some come for the Atlantic City Shows, some come for the Atlantic City restaurants or find shopping deals. Still, even more come in the summer for the golf courses, and Atlantic City has plenty of them. The following are a few courses that you might want to try if golfing is your sport of choice.
Twisted Dune Golf Club – This course is fairly challenging, full of ravines, grassy hills, and beautiful scenery which can really throw you for a loop while playing. These natural beauties will also create challenging hazards even for the most seasoned of golfers. With eighteen holes and an ideal location on the Jersey Shore, this is one place any golfer will want to visit.
Sea Oaks Golf Club – If you are looking for more of a championship course, you won’t want to miss this 18 hole championship location spread out over 194 acres of land. While it does use the natural landscape for many obstacles and hazards, modern landscaping methods have been put into great use. It is a perfect combination of man and nature for you to enjoy as you make your way down the green.
Renault Winery – It might sounds like strange place to hit the green, but don’t let the name fool you! The land features a 7,000 yard 18 hole golf course which compliments Renault’s award-winning restaurant.
Links at Brigantine – As with the Twisted Dune golf course, this one has its roots in Scottish golfing tradition, and features a softly rolling terrain, marshes, and is placed directly on a National Audubon sanctuary. If you were looking to get closer to nature while golfing, this is your chance. Over the 18 holes you will see natural beauty as well as man-made triumphs.
Atlantic City has something for everyone this summer whether you’re soaring above the waters, soaring above the skyline, or hitting the green.
