|Celebrity Resorts Brigantine Beach is set on the beach on Brigantine Island, five miles from the world-famous Atlantic City Boardwalk. Swim and sun during the day and sample casino and showroom entertainment at night. Explore the island's quaint shopping districts and the Boardwalk, which is lined with stores, arcades, rides, and games. The island is home to an 18-hole golf course; the Marine Mammal Stranding and Educational Center; and New Jersey's largest wildlife refuge, ideal for walking, fishing, bird-watching, or picnicking. Another must-see is Smithville, a restored 18th-century town.
