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.
