AC Walking Tours Expand to Surrounding Communities in 2024

(ATLANTIC CITY, NJ) -- The popular AC Walking Tours are back and bigger than ever in 2024 with new tours and expansion into neighborhoods around Atlantic City. The spring tours will take place from noon to 2:00pm on consecutive Saturdays in May. Summer tours will take place from 10:00am to noon on consecutive Fridays in July. Fall tours will take place from noon to 2:00pm on consecutive Saturdays in October. All are sponsored by Stockton University's Office of Continuing Studies and Adult Education (OCSAE).

“These fun adventures across the greater Atlantic City area provide interactive experiences in a two-hour guided tour,” said OCSAE Assistant Director Diane Strelczyk. “Our tours are designed to highlight the beauty, history and humanity of Atlantic City. Each neighborhood features a rich history and a present-day vibe. Our goal is to showcase all the interesting people, places and events Atlantic City has held, currently features and hopes to achieve.”

The tours are researched, designed and led by historian Levi Fox, an assistant professor of History at Immaculata University and former adjunct professor at Stockton.

The spring lineup begins on May 4 with Lower Chelsea, followed by Nucky’s Empire on May 11, Margate’s “The Lucy Loop” on May 18 and Historic Somers Point on May 25.

The summer lineup focuses exclusively on Atlantic City neighborhoods starting on July 5 in Upper Chelsea, followed by Ducktown Revitalization on July 12, the North Inlet and Bungalow Park on July 19 and South Inlet’s “To the Lighthouse” on July 26.

The fall lineup starts in downtown Ocean City on October 5 and then moves to Atlantic City for Northside Heritage on October 12, Louisa Mack’s LGBTQ+ on October 19 and the History of Gaming on October 26.

Strelczyk said the office is excited to offer two new Atlantic City tours: Nucky’s Empire and North Inlet and Bungalow Park. Fox will be dressed in character as infamous Atlantic City boss Enoch “Nucky” Johnson, while the North Inlet tour will discuss the historic impact of Bungalow Park and Gardner’s Basin.

“As we integrate these new tours with standard favorites, such as the Lower Chelsea and Ducktown Revitalization tours, we know everyone will get their steps in this year,” she said.

All tours are $15 per person, per tour. Participants are encouraged to bring their walking shoes, sunscreen and a water bottle, as each tour will cover two to three miles of parks, city streets and the boardwalks. Select tours will also include tours of popular local attractions like Lucy the Elephant, the Absecon Lighthouse, the Noyes Arts Garage, the Margate Historical Society and the 4th Street Life Saving Station in Ocean City.

The Ducktown Community Development Corporation, the Chelsea Economic Development Corporation and Lucy the Elephant are co-sponsors of the walking tours.
