Where Can I View the 2023 Atlantic City Airshow?
The Atlantic City Airshow is visible from pretty much anywhere on the beach and boardwalk in Atlantic City. Just walk outside and look up.
Make sure to have your eyes on the skies.
It will be hard to miss if you're in the Atlantic City area and surrounding beach towns. I've caught glimpses of the action from the beach in nearby Ocean City in previous years.
Atlantic City’s FREE beaches and Boardwalk have great views of the Airshow. Ocean-facing hotel rooms and outdoor venues will also have views of the show, event officials say.
Those wishing to view the show from the ocean are welcome, but there's a no-boat zone that will be enforced by the U.S. Coast Guard during the show.
