Try this link for the Atlantic City event calender. Most outdoor activities don't start yet since it can still be pretty cool in April.

fishing http://www.highrollerfishing.com/default.html I don't think that flounder season begins til May, but they may have fishing in April ~ as they have striper fishing til Dec

Lucy will be reopening for the season in April http://www.lucytheelephant.org/

ride a bike on the Atlantic City boardwalk in the morning. Bike riding is permitted on the boardwalk from 6:30 AM to 10:00 AM from April 1st to October 31st., and from 6:30 AM to Noon from November 1st to March 31st. You don't have to have a bike; you can rent one. Bikes are available for rent near both the Resorts and Tropicana casinos[unsure if still available at Ceasar's] B & K Bike Rental 609-344-8008

Central Pier has arcade games & outdoor go-Karts

The Garden Pier ~ if it is not knocked down by Revel, http://www.acmuseum.org/[FREE ADMISSION & FREE PARKING til 4pm]

Smithville is not far and there are other attractions near it. here is some info: [EZ directions: Showboat is on Delaware Ave, take Delaware Ave out of AC [turns into Rt 30 aka White Horse Pike], follow to Shore Road in Absecon [aka Rt 9] and make right [You will see Black Cat Tavern on corner] and will see signs for Noyes Museum, Edwin B Forsythe and Smithville respectively [can't miss 'em] http://www.smithvillenj.com/

It is a village of unique shops with loose chickens, ducks, geese. There is a pond on-site that has pedal boat rentals & radio-controlled toy boat rentals [warm weather]. Fred & Ehtel's has american fare at reasonable prices - this is especially a plus as it LOOKS like a pricey tourist trap, as well as the shops are affordable. BTW, Fred & Ethel's has good bloody marys

Near Smithville is the Noyes Museum http://www.noyesmuseum.org/

Noyes includes [or used to] Starbucks coffee in admission price [$4 pp].

and Edwin B Forsythe Wildlife area http://www.fws.gov/northeast/forsythe/

Forsythe has an 8 mile wildlife drive with 2 observation towers that have free binoculars. They brag about their AC skyline view... but it seems out-of-character for a wildlife refuge. There may be a lot of migrating birds in April. Admission is $4 and inculdes all car occupants If you want to do all 3, this can be an all day excursion and is REALLY close to AC.
