ABOUT ATLANTIC COUNTY

Atlantic County leads the tourism industry in New Jersey, employing nearly 50,000 workers and generating $6.7 billion dollars in annual revenue in 2016. The region’s aviation infrastructure is among the most advanced in the nation. The Atlantic City International Airport provides convenient global access to the area, and the Federal Aviation Administration William J. Hughes Technical Center is at the forefront of airspace and defense research and innovation. From commercial farms and fisheries to food and beverage distributors, the county’s agricultural assets make it ideally suited for food businesses to grow. Atlantic County is also home to Stockton University, pristine beaches, a robust public park system, world-class golf courses, winery & brewery trails, a National Blue Ribbon high school, and Atlantic City—the Entertainment Capital of the Jersey Shore.
