Playing a round of mini-golf with my family was always a must whenever we went on vacation. I wasn't crazy about my boys constantly beating me when they started to get older.

Did you know there are actually benefits of playing mini-golf especially for children?  Some of the benefits include improving hand-eye coordination, motor skills, and burning off calories. Plus physical and social activity and you get to spend lots of quality time with your family.

Here's some great news for mini-golf lovers! A new course has been approved near the Atlantic City Boardwalk by the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority according to the Press of Atlantic City.

Construction for the new 18-hole North Beach Mini-Golf Course could begin this Septmeber and the new owners hope to have it open by the summer of 2022.

The course would be located at 120 Euclid Avenue in Atlantic City and would include two levels, bike rentals, and a bridge for pedestrians which would be linked to the world-famous Atlantic City Boardwalk.

I am so looking forward to playing around or two on the new mini-golf course coming to Atlantic City!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
