Had a great time walking the boardwalk. It was nice and wide so not crowded. A separate path for the bikes. Definitely recommend this to couples that want a nice walk together

I expected the boardwalk to have eateries and shops but found tat it was all hotels. You have to go a block over before reaching any shops. Expected to be able to get boardwalk fare such as funnel cakes, salt water taffy, steak hoagies, etc. Unless you go to a hotel restaurant that faces the boardwalk you don't get the... More

We walked to the boardwalk from our hotel (about 3 miles) and it was worth the view! Costs money to go onto boardwalk even if you're just looking though. There are rides outside but not much geared towards small children.

Wonderful ocean boardwalk. A nice evening stroll without getting all full of sand! It is especially nice when the sand castles are being built!

The boardwalk has a breathtaking view of the ocean. So many different restaurants and hotels along the one side giving you a bunch of different options to choose from. At night they have music either by live band or sometimes they have concerts going which were awesome just off the waterfront. And if ur walking on the boardwalk on sunday... More

My family and I walked along the Boardwalk taking in the views. We stopped to go get ice cream and then continued walking the boardwalk, stopping occasionally to rest on a bench, and when my grandchild needed concentrate on his ice cream cone. The Boardwalk was very clean.
