Lucy the Elephant (Margate/ New Jersey)

Lucy the Elephant is located along the beach in Josephine Harron Park in Margate, NJ. The 6 story landmark was originally created in 1881 in an effort to sell real estate and attract tourists.
Today, Lucy really is a tourist attraction. Guided tours take visitors into the building through the spiral staircase in the left rear leg up into the interior, then up again into the howdah to see views of Margate, the Atlantic City skyline, and the Atlantic Ocean.
