Atlantic City Boardwalk, New Jersey The Atlantic City boardwalk in New Jersey is one of the most iconic board walk in the world. The city was the inspiration for the Monopoly game. It was brought entertainment to millions via the MTV television show, Jersey Shore. The first wooden planks were laid in Atlantic City in 1870 to curb the amount of sand beachcombers tracked into the train and hotel lobbies. The four-mile boardwalk now serves as a connector to all of the flashy casinos, glitzy hotel towers, cavernous arcade halls, and a neon-lit amusement pier.
