Lucy the Elephant

Location: Margate, NJ

Built in 1881, Lucy is 132 years old, still weighing 90 tons and standing six stories tall. Her initial use was as a real estate office space, while she later became a summer home and then a tavern, but could not handle the drunkenness of her guests. Lucy was named a National Historic Landmark and is open today for tours that lead up to the howdah on her back, where views of the surrounding landscape can be enjoyed. Head over to Atlantic City and meet the oldest elephant on Earth for a small admission fee.
