19 Wonderful Color Photos Capture Scenes of the Atlantic City Beach and Boardwalk From Between the 1950s and '60s

The Atlantic City Boardwalk opened on June 26, 1870, as the first boardwalk in the United States.

The Boardwalk starts at Absecon Inlet in the north and runs along the beach south-west to the city limit 4 miles (6.4 km) away then continues 1 1⁄2 miles (2.4 km) into Ventnor City.

Stroll along the Boardwalk and enjoy ocean views on one side and shopping on the other, ranging from high-end retail to saltwater taffy shops.

Casino/hotels front the boardwalk, as well as retail stores, restaurants, and amusements. Notable attractions include the Boardwalk Hall, House of Blues, and the Ripley's Believe It or Not! museum.

Atlantic City beach and boardwalk activities include surfing, kayaking, windsurfing and fishing. Here are some of wonderful color photographs that capture scenes of the Atlantic City from between 1950s and '60s.
