ATLANTIC CITY — From the military contributions of city residents to the Mafia-laced history of Ducktown to the emergence of the city’s “gay-borhood,” historian Levi Fox’s guided history tours will delve into the city’s past.

On consecutive Sundays in September, Stockton University’s Office of Continuing Studies walking tour series will explore three of Atlantic City’s neighborhoods: Chelsea, Ducktown and the “Orange Loop,” so named because it occupies the orange streets on a traditional Monopoly board.

The tours will be led by Fox, a Stockton adjunct professor, and run from 10 a.m. to noon. Participants should wear walking shoes and bring a water bottle, as each tour will cover between 2 to 3 miles of parks, streets and Boardwalk.

The cost is $25 per tour or $65 for the entire series. Discounts are available through Friday with the code EARLYWALK. Registration is required. Visit stockton.edu/continuing-studies or call 609-652-4227.
