AC Walking Tour Series
The AC Walking Tour Series allows participants to actively experience the historical landmarks, events, prominent figures, and sub-cultures of Atlantic City. Our guided tours - created and led by Atlantic City Historian and Stockton Adjunct Professor Dr. Levi Fox - will explore different neighborhoods and perspectives across the city. Bring your walking shoes, sun block, and water bottle, as each tour will cover between 2 to 3 miles of parks, city streets, and the boardwalk. Beginning in Summer 2022, the Chelsea Economic Development Corporation and the Ducktown Community Development Corporation have provided sponsorships to the AC Walking Tours to help reduce the costs of the tours for local residents. Please show your support of our sponsors by supporting local businesses in the Chelsea and Ducktown Neighborhoods.
AC Walking Tour Price: $10 each tour
