Charming Bed and Breakfast Steps from the Atlantic City Boardwalk

After The Carisbrooke Inn innkeeper John Battista traveled around Europe extensively, he returned with an appreciation for European hospitality and applied it to his own bed and breakfast, located just blocks from the Atlantic City boardwalk. Guests will notice the staff’s friendliness and attention to detail the moment they walk through the door, where a bellhop waits to greet them and tow their bags upstairs. In the evening, there’s more hospitality on the ocean-view deck—you might try John’s special wine blend, fresh bruschetta, and focaccia, made from an old family recipe.

In the morning, the inn hosts a two-course breakfast on its ocean-view parlor. The meal features a hot entree made from scratch, which may include pancakes with fruit, waffles, or spinach-and-gruyère strata, a spin on quiche. It also includes seasonal fruit and housemade pastries such as cranberry scones. With this Getaway, you'll also be treated to a bottle of wine, ice cream or water ice (brownies after September 20th), and use of the inn's beach chairs and towels.

From the outside, it's easy to see the inn's American foursquare-style architecture. But inside, Victorian touches and a warm color palette bring to mind a cottage in the French countryside. Each of the guest rooms is individually styled with antique furnishings and vintage pieces. The inn even has a piano and a guitar if you want to play a few tunes.

Ventnor City, New Jersey: Historical Seaside Hamlet near Atlantic City Casinos

Less than 2 miles from downtown Atlantic City’s casinos and clubs lies its more subdued neighbor, Ventnor City. It’s a small, old-fashioned beach community with quaint shops and restaurants, a welcome complement to Atlantic City’s frenetic atmosphere.

The town is the perfect launch pad for trips to the beach’s signature boardwalk, which stretches for 6 miles along New Jersey's eastern coast. Originally built in 1870 to keep sand out of hotel lobbies, the boardwalk grew in popularity as a place where you could drink and gamble during Prohibition without much trouble from the police, as depicted in HBO's Boardwalk Empire. The boardwalk is still popular for its casinos, but it's family-friendly, too; visitors are just as inclined to sit at the beach or stop at one of the many carnival rides.

Proving further that Atlantic City isn't all nightclubs, boardwalk, and casinos is Gardner's Basin, a maritime village along the bay. Here, a community of artisans uses seashells and driftwood to hand make items such as wind chimes and picture frames. However, the Basin's biggest claim to fame is the 25,000-gallon Atlantic City Aquarium swimming with turtles and rays.
