Have you ever been to the Steel Pier?

The Atlantic City Steel Pier was world famous. It was opened on June 18th, 1898, and was named "the Steel Pier" because of its steel underpinnings. It was the Quakers who built the Steel Pier as a place to relax and as a resort of their own. But, it was soon opened to the public.

The Steel Pier is over the Atlantic Ocean. The 1,000-foot long amusement pier offered amusements, concerts, food, beverages, concessions and more.

  1. Yes, I have been to Steel Pier!

    As a kid -
    It was a magical place with shows and lots of things going on. Rides, food, Concerts, Shows....They also had a diving horse. You could see him from the beach.
    As a kid, it was an awesome place, must see if you went to Altlantic City and the boardwalk.
    Also a great place to cool off on a hot sunny day.
