A very long walk but there is a tram available in case you are tired of walking. The advantage of this over Atlantic City Boardwalk is that you can see the beach and the people swimming. It is also longer. Good to bring children because not much into casino or none at all.

Great to walk off all the great food eaten at dinner; lots of stores and sweets to shop; even love being able to walk the beach during the late evening.

Loved this boardwalk, loads of people just enjoying the day/night. A lot of shops and things to see. Very long to walk but if you get tired there are shuttles on the boardwalk. Good for bike riding too

We love walking the boards. From the shopping to the bars, we love to spend time here. We love to people watch and this is a great place for it. You just never know who or what you will see!

Flashy and crowded. Live music was great, Sand Fest sculptures were great, having to watch out for the tram on the boardwalk, not so great. The boardwalk has very very limited dining options. There is no shortage of souvenir shops. The boardwalk is large the view is great, but they really need to think about designating a lane to the... More

I always love to see the people trying to make money on the boardwalk and I wasn't let down. The man making paintings with spray paint was there as well as a few others and many musicians!

... which is what you would expect from an ocean beach tourist attraction in mid-summer. There are lots of activities, lots of shops, and lots of foodie items. They all come with a price. Bring your wallet.

I like to people watch, and all the good smells of the Trasher fries. The bright lights of the carnival make the boardwalk exciting.

OC boardwalk is much like the pictures that us born in the 60's have stamped in our heads. The amusement areas with the rides and all the shops and that great boardwalk food! If you are a people watcher this is a great place to do it! Huge plus for beach goers because you step off the beach onto the... More

Pretty much the same as every other boardwalk that I've been to. The same 10 shops repeated over and over. Beach was extremely clean though. Sand sculptures were great!
