There is absolutely no shortage of fun -- and free -- things to do on the Atlantic City Boardwalk this summer.

If you are musically inclined, you'll want to head to Kennedy Plaza, right in front of Boardwalk Hall, where free concerts will be held every Wednesday evening starting at 7:00, presented by Tony Mart Presents...

  • July 18th - Reggae Stars Third World
  • July 25th - The Weight Band

Or if Broadway is more your style, but you don't want to head to New York City, Broadway will come to you! Broadway on the Boardwalk returns to Kennedy Plaza on July 16th and 23rd at 8PM, hosted by "One Funny Mother" comedian Dena Blizzard. This concert series features performances by the current casts of the hottest musicals
on Broadway.

Enjoy Atlantic City this summer!
