This is a family friendly boardwalk, rides geared to the younger crowd. My children , 6 and 8, enjoyed it because it was just enough to keep them interested but not too much. The rides are expensive, 7-9 tickets per rider.

New Jersey started it all with the boardwalks and everyone copied. This is still one of the classic Jersey Shore boardwalks. If you're visiting NJ, do yourself a favor and experience it on a nice sunny day. You won't be sorry.

I grew up around this area. And while i now live in a different time zone i have to say going back to visit brought back many pleasant memories. During the day the area is very family centric, with plenty to do for all ages. However, the night time crowd is quite different. It's a shame that the place gets... More

I'm not going to write a review whining about the boardwalk. We know what we're getting into when going here, a trashy, crowded, lame amusement strewn Boardwalk with overpriced games, rides and gift shops. That being said, you should go experience the essence of the jersey shore's asscrack, ride a crappy roller coaster, grab a drink at Martell's or Jenks.... More

We went to Jenkinson's Aquarium last weekend and we were pleasantly surprised by the attraction. Unfortunately a good portion of the attraction is under renovation so we weren't able to see the sea lions but my 5 children of all ages really liked it. We've been to many aquariums all over the country and, even though this one was quite... More

This is a fantastic family-friendly boardwalk. Lots of rides for younger kids (not many adult rides). Everything is safe and clean. As locals to the area, we take advantage of the "Wristband" days when a wristband can be purchased for unlimited amusement ride usage, as opposed to paying for individual ride tickets. We really love Jenk's Boardwalk.
