The legal gambling age for all Atlantic City casinos is 21. Anyone arrested for underage gambling in Atlantic City faces a disorderly persons offence charge, which becomes part of a criminal record. A conviction includes a drivers license suspension of six months and a fine between $500 and $1,000.

People who are too young to gamble in Atlantic City have other options for entertainment. At Gilchrist Offshore Restaurant, patrons can enjoy breakfast and a great view of the marina. Tourists have been taking home boxes of Fralinger's Saltwater Taffy for over 100 years. Many strange and wonderful items are on display at Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum on the boardwalk.
