If you are tired of crammed beach destination boardwalks with a circus feel, then try the Boardwalk at Bethany Beach. It's a pleasure both by day and by night. During the day there is the hustle and bustle of beach goers and by night the same people are visiting the shops and restaurants and simply relaxing on the boardwalk. They... More

The boardwalk is nice and fun to walk quickly through. Perfect for a night after spending the day on the beach.

Great beach stores with something for everyone. No pesky salespeople. Great entertainment. Police are always around but in a friendly way. Morning and evening strolls with little traffic

This is a smallish, family friendly boardwalk that complements nicely the fine beach at Bethany. Not as crowded as Rehobeth or Ocean City. Good clean fun.

Bethany Beach and the boardwalk is a great family spot. Some shops are opened after 5pm. My family rents a beach house close by so we can walk over to the boardwalk in the evenings.

From music to food, to people watching and tourist hordes, this is the place where locals and visitors collide to snack on wonderful, mostly not very healthy though, beach cuisine and enjoy every minute of it. Lots of Boardwalk type shops, but a small enough boardwalk not to overwhelm. Benches facing away from the ocean enable a weary visitor to... More

We were staying in Dewey Beach but visited the Bethany boardwalk one night. Parking was a nightmare and we almost left. Felt like they did not want visitors to the area. Small selection of stores and not much to see. We enjoyed walking around for an evening but not sure we would go back if in the area again mostly... More
