We go to the boardwalk at least once a week, either by walking or driving for the food and the fun little souvenir shops. There are also sand volleyball courts and a small playground.

The boardwalk was a great place to stroll around at. It was in walking distance from our hotel, which was wonderful!

They had some good shops to check out while you are deciding on where to eat, all the restaurants looks amazing we made it to a few of them and the girls loved playing on the play ground after dinner!

We had a great time out fishing on the pier. We caught several small fish and fed the birds those small fish (not on purpose) Beware when you're fishing because the birds will steal your bait and your fish! We laughed and just enjoyed our time on the pier. Beautiful views and look for the dolphins swimming around waiting on... More

The Boardwalk is just a so so place, ok if you are tired of sitting on the beach, or if it is raining, which is was when we went. Had dinner at The Black Pearl, on the 4:00 - 6:00 pm special. I had grilled shrimp and while they tasted pretty good, they were very small. Husband has a trio... More

Paying the $2 to walk on the boardwalk was worth it! You get an amazing view! But walking around in the shops/ resteraunt area is a waste of time. It's smelly, there is no ventilation, and it consists of only 4 resteraunts and 2 shops.

Well who would've thought but the little store that sold Gelato, had awesome ham and cheese breakfast croissants, and coffee drinks of all kinds.. The lady was so nice and helpful. Will definitely go get some Gelato tomorrow.

We stopped at Floyd's for a couple of drinks to go (yummy, refreshing, and EXPENSIVE) and walked down to the beach. What can I say but the water is beautiful and the sand is like sugar. There were bad rip currents this particular day and the lifeguards were swarming the beach - whistles blowing. We were only allowed to swim... More
