Sports & Outdoors


An outdoor adventure for everyone


Atlantic City, NJ is the city created to escape the average city. A lot of people come here for the casinos, the restaurants, the shopping and the entertainment -- and we can’t blame them. But as with all things, moderation is key, and some of Atlantic City’s most memorable experiences don’t have four walls around them. You can learn to surf, give sea kayaking a try, go for a sunrise run on the beach, charter a sport fishing boat and guide or enjoy a bike rental in Atlantic City. Golfers of every skill level have their pick of more than a dozen superb golf courses Atlantic City has to offer. AC’s temperate coastal climate also means good weather for much of the year, so you can spend more time outside.

Do you think people would rather hear about how great the ambiance was at dinner or the day you went parasailing and reeled in a 100-pound fish? Search the listings below for your next adventure; you can reserve a bike rental in Atlantic City, get the low-down on the best fishing spots, learn about surfing lessons or book a tee times on our fabulous golf courses. Atlantic City’s outdoors are wilder than you think -- get out there and experience it.

The restoration of the Absecon Lighthouse was completed in 1999, followed by the reconstruction of the Keeper's Dwelling in 2001.The third and final phase, the restoration of the 2-acre site was completed in 2003. Funded by grants from the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority & NJ Department of Transportation's Transportation Enhancement Program, the site work phase restored many characteristic features of the historic grounds. Now visitors can enjoy strolling the 2-acre property, visiting the Keeper's Cottage museum and gift shop, and climbing the 228 steps to the top of the lighthouse. Keepers are on duty and share with visitors the magnificent 360 view of the Jersey shore, and the magnificent 1854 First-Order Fresnel lens in the lantern above.

Historic Organ Restoration Committee is a 501c3 chartered by the state of New Jersey for the restoration and preservation of the two pipe organs of Historic Boardwalk Hall. In addition to the actual physical restoration of the instruments, HORC seeks to educate and increase awareness of the unique importance of these instruments as irreplaceable national treasures through programming and tours throughout the year. The large organ (main auditorium) is the world’s largest musical instrument, the smaller instrument (Adrian Phillips Theater) is one uniquely suited to the interpretation of silent film.

HORC was formed by the New Jersey Sports and Exhibition Authority on February 13, 2004 for the solicitation of funds for the restoration of the pipe organ(s) of Atlantic City Convention Hall (now Boardwalk Hall). HORC seeks to demonstrate the singular capabilities of the unique musical treasures of Boardwalk Hall and raise awareness for the need for additional funds to complete the project of the restoration of both organs to their original musical capabilities.

16 million dollars is needed over the next 10 years to return both organs to fully functional. Currently, the past several years of work have allowed the first 75% of the Ballroom organ and approximately 25% of the Main Auditorium organ to return to functionality. The use of these instruments for programming such as outlined above, allows us to make people aware of the presence of the instruments within the building. The instruments otherwise are not necessarily visually obvious to guests of Boardwalk Hall as they are enclosed within the walls and ceilings of the building.

The long-range plan of HORC is to complete the restoration of these two instruments and return them to full functionality. At our current rate of funding, we anticipate this to be 2023, but this may change. These instruments are slowly, but surely returning to the daily operations of the building and can be heard in numerous concerts and shows at Boardwalk Hall. HORC will continue to promote an increase of tourist interest and awareness of what has recently best been described as “The Sonic Mt. Rushmore”.
