Kennedy Plaza is just in front of the Boardwalk Hall. It has Miss America Statue holding a crown so you can pretend to be the new Miss America :) There is a workers memorial monument. Benches and a mini golf area.

Historic center of the famous Boardwalk. Statues and memorials in the area along with the famous site housing the Miss America pageant.

I have been here several times. No big deal. The Atlantic City Boardwalk is nothing like it was when I was younger. Mostly bottom feeders I am sorry to say. I will never return.

You can't miss this area right on the boardwalk across from the concert hall. Lots of benches and it was fun as always to pretend to get crowned as Miss America at the crowning sculpture. Decently clean and nice during the day and early evening.

Right on the boardwalk, it's a nice relaxing area with a few sculptures and sometimes live music. There are plenty of seating benches to relax and take a break from walking. It is decently clean and was relaxing both day and night. Plenty of lighting.

The Kennedy Plaza, located right outside of Boardwalk Hall, is a nice little place, and nothing more. There's a monument, a bust of JFK, a mini-golf course, and views of the Boardwalk.
