NYC → ATLANTIC CITY

This was a solo trip I took from the Upper East Side of Manhattan to Atlantic City, NJ. It was intended to be a 2 day trip, but due to the campsite being 10 miles into the woods on a sand road, it turned into a single day trip. I left my apartment at 8:00 am and arrived at my destination 134 miles away at 9:00 pm. It was a great trip, mostly flat, and decently scenic.

I had to ride to midtown Manhattan to catch a ferry over to the northern tip of the Jersey Shore. These are pictures taken from that ferry

Who knew Jersey could be so rural

Below is Brigantine Beach where we stayed, it is just south of AC.

No trip to AC is complete without a trip to the boardwalk. Not to mention the amazing light-show on the side of the building.
