Fodor writes, "[Atlantic City] is said to be the world’s first and longest boardwalk dating way back to 1870. The structure’s original intent was to protect the nearby hotels from unruly ocean waves, but over time, as the boardwalk grew to its current length of 5.5 miles, it became an international entertainment hub."

Ocean City's boardwalk made the Top 12, too. Just not New Jersey's Ocean City, but Ocean City, MARYLAND. Gosh darn. But, congratulations to Atlantic City!
