It was nice to be able to walk and check out the shopping and marina as well as viewing the magnolia tree and the charter boat area. Can't wait to come again

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!
