An authentic Jersey Shore seaside town, slower than Atlantic City, and with a quaint appeal, plus plenty to do and a lovely beach to enjoy.
The sandy beach is the main draw to Margate City, being quiet and clean, and often without crowds. Plus, nearby there are places to rent surf boards, fishing equipment and beach equipment. There are also plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants, shops and fun things to do along the beach area.
The town is additionally known for the iconic landmark Miss Lucy, a 65-foot circus elephant built in 1882 to entice real estate developers. The elephant has housed a bar, restaurant, summer home and hotel, and today is a fun attraction for kids to explore.
Summer is a busy time to visit but the crowds and great weather only add to the charm of Margate City.

— My favorite thing about AllTheRooms is that it combines both rentals and hotels available so you can see an entire view of what is available in a certain area. I was able to see listings on AllTheRooms that I never even saw on other travel sites!
— I love AllTheRooms because it is not only local homes for renting, and not only hotels, but everything combined. When I am about to book a place to stay, I usually spend a couple of hours looking through both hotel sites and local home sites, comparing the prices and places.
— As a mom of 5 kids who enjoy traveling, I love AllTheRooms! It is quick and easy to find the best deal on lodging that fits our family, in the area we'd like. AllTheRooms really does save you time, money, and hassle.
