“World's largest fake Elephant”
Lucy the Elephant is located along the beach in Josephine Harron Park (named for our co-founder) in Margate, NJ. She is six stories high and is listed on the National Park Registry of Historical Landmarks. Our park is fenced and contained, making child supervision easy. Picnic tables are on site for eating out-of-doors. We also have friendly, trained volunteers and staff to assist you during your visit. On the tour you will learn about Lucy's unique architecture and her history and you will get to climb a spiral staircase through her insides all the way up to the howdah on her back, providing a spectacular 360° view of the surrounding shore area. Children and families are sure to enjoy visiting the only elephant in the world “you can walk through and come out alive!" We offer convenient hours and of course, Lucy is always available by appointment to be toured by schools & groups.
Lucy is such an old-school kitschy tourist attraction. She was actually built all the way back in 1881as an advertisement to entice people to move to the area and to help bring tourists in. You can take a guided tour up a spiral staircase inside Lucy. Pretty good views of the Atlantic City skyline.
I can't believe that this has been around since the 1880s!!! And it used to be a hotel-- so cool. Fun fact: people used to think that Lucy was a boy, until she was determined to be a girl!
right on the main road - great photo op
Now all I need is Jasmine and a genie. ;)
Just go after they close and it's free to take the picture..
