Lucy the elephant was built in 1881 as an attraction to the waterfront development just south of modern Atlantic City. This animal inspired building is about 6 miles south of the Atlantic city boardwalk and another historic landmark Absecon lighthouse. It is located at 9200 Atlantic ave in Margate, NJ. Atlantic avenue spans both islands and is very long at about 10 miles. Beautiful sandy beach stretches along the coast line and is a great place to spend a day.

Lucy the Elephant building was moved from its original location and rebuilt and restored several times due to storms and fires. This animal inspired building is a huge structure at 65 feet tall. Admission to the grounds is free and there is a small fee for the tour of the house. There is a nice waterfront restaurant Lucy Cheesesteakes where you can enjoy a meal or just an ice-cream and relax observing the ocean, the beach and the elephant building.
