Atlantic City has been honored as having the world’s Best Beach Boardwalk in the Travel Channel’s annual Best Beach Awards, the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority announced Friday.

Travel Channel Senior Interactive Producer Sara Gilliam said the Boardwalk offers a mix of old and new, from its iconic rolling chairs to its high-end shopping.

“Still standing after Superstorm Sandy, there’s never been a better time to visit the Atlantic City boardwalk,” she said.
