My hotel was right on the main street but further from the boardwalk itself. It was about a 10 minute walk but I could have walked that whole street day and night every day.

Ecellent for walking and getting some sun! Excellent views and a great breeze off the ocean! 13 miles long that runs North to South its one of the longest seafront walkways in the world!

Make sure that you are wearing comfortable shoes and a hat! It's a long walk... Try to get off the bus close to the old town area - more interesting... continue to the water fountain area.

This is an amazing walk along the beach. There’s lots to see in the many shops and restaurants. There’s regular access down to the beach to enjoy the waves.
