The famous Atlantic City boardwalk extended last month, giving joggers, bikers and casual strollers even more to love. The new section runs past the former Revel property to The Ocean at 101 Boardwalk apartment building.

“The reconstruction of this section of the Boardwalk has been talked about for decades,” said A.C. Mayor Don Guardian in a statement. “By rebuilding the Boardwalk in this area, the Southeast Inlet becomes an attractive area for biking, strolling, beachgoers and future development.”

Construction began on the extension a year ago, and a grand re-opening ceremony was held earlier this month. The city still has plans to rebuild the boardwalk beyond Oriental Avenue.
