Perhaps a hidden gem, the museums and galleries in Atlantic City create a cultural oasis for the weary traveler. Believe it or not, Atlantic City did not spring out of the earth fully formed in the early 20th century; instead the city has a long history that can be explored at the Atlantic City Historical Museum. Nestled next to the Historical Museum on Garden Pier, the Atlantic City Art Center, along with the Noyes Museum of Art, host art exhibits on par with their big city neighbors. Between slot machines and spa visits, make sure to take the time to check out the city's other attractions.
