Located along the coast just south of Atlantic City, Longport Township is a diverse residential community that features a quiet, small-town atmosphere yet is just minutes from all the real excitement of Atlantic City. Longport is the southernmost of three shore towns featuring oceanfront high-rises, multi-million-dollar mansions, upscale boutiques and gourmet restaurants. Ventnor, Margate and Longport offer easy access to Atlantic City.
The Longport area is primarily residential, so accommodations consist of vacation home rentals and bed-and-breakfasts. Each town has a distinct identity and a different clientele. Longport is known for its spectacular real estate, a mix of modern architecture and genteel old beach homes, most of it "super-sized." The quietest and priciest of the three towns, Longport boasts beautiful beaches and little commerce. It's a place of magnificent sunrises, sunny days on clean beaches, and magical nights beneath the stars.
