This is a cute little boardwalk. It is nicely kept. The bathrooms are clean and spacious for changing to go to the beach. The boardwalk is on the smaller side. There are no rides. But, the crowds are much smaller. There is very limited parking to access the boardwalk.

No amusement rides or games. Just good food and nice shops. There is an arcade. Thrashers fries are great. Family friendly. Parking is tough.

We went here with my 11 year old niece and my sister. It is a very cute and classy boardwalk. The shops are nice and not your typical beach shops, although there are numerous t shirt shops with henna tatooes available. Quite a few nice jewelry shops that I was able to buy a watch and sterling silver sand dollar... More

Bethany Beach is a small beach town between two large beach cities. There is Ocean City, Maryland to the south and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware to the north. Still, Bethany has everything the larger beaches have, only on a much smaller scale. It has a nice boardwalk, restaurants, and shops. If having all the beach amenities is your thing without the...

First visit to Bethany boardwalk & promenade...found it very quaint and charming. Lobster roll and fries from DB Fries, Delicious!! The day I was there was quite crowded, so it wasn't as "quiet" as they claim, but compared to the chaos of OCMD it was bliss. Will definitely be back with the kids!

The boardwalk has a small venue for live music and has the stores you might expect to find on other beaches. Surf shop, fudge and candy, caramel popcorn, ice cream, taffy, funnel cake...etc. It is well lit in the evening and handles the crowd well enough.

Been coming to Bethany for years, with the whole family. Grown children and grandchildren, and plan to be back next year too. The grandkids are now 20, 16, 14, and 13 and still look forward to coming back every year.

My son represents the fourth generation in my family to spend time here! We love it here and hope to continue coming, annually, to enjoy the sights and sounds! It is DEFINITELY a family place! Check out the Movies on the Sand every Monday night, as well as the Kids concerts throughout the summer! There are tons of other events,... More

Cute little boardwalk (when comparing to ocean city). Many places to shop, eat, etc. Visited during the day so not sure if busier in the evening. Mostly families, quant town.

Only reason I rated a 4 was because of the size. I wish the boardwalk was just a tad bigger with a few more shops, pubs, sandwich shop, etc .
