Getting Around Atlantic City

Visitors to Atlantic City have been riding on the Famous Rolling Chairs since the 1800's. The wicker rolling chairs are rolled up and down the length of the Boardwalk by a guide. A ride in a rolling chair is bewitching, like a carriage ride through Central Park, or a gondola tour of the Venetian canals. Visitors have used the rolling chair for a relaxing ride, a scenic tour, or on occasion, for special events, such as engagement or wedding proposals. These chairs are built not for speed, but for romance. For more information call (609)347-7148.
