My family has gone to the boardwalk 3 days in a row! We love the arcade and the shops. Lots of fun games and reasonable prices. They serve food and adult beverages too. The pizza restaurant near the pier (but still on the boardwalk) had delicious food! The pizza, shrimp, salad, and poppers were great. We found some really cool... More

So we decided to stop by after a day at the speedway. My boyfriend, my two daughters, 11 and 9, and I wanted to unwind and let loose a little. So when we arrived we noticed some of the stores we're closed, the amusements (rides) were closed for renovation and the only thing open were we could eat was some... More

The boardwalk is a lot smaller than it was several years ago. You walk it in about three minutes. There are a few rides however the ferris wheel is gone. There is a bungee tower and some games and a couple of shops. The pizza parlour st the entrance is good. You can walk onto the pier as well. Not... More

We enjoyed the fireworks on Saturday nights at 9:00 pm. We were able to see them two Saturdays in a row - before and after Thanksgiving. You do not have to be at the boardwalk area to see them - we were able to view them from our condo which was approximately 1 mile from the boardwalk. If you're in... More

My grandfather used to take me on the ferris wheel when I was a little girl and we vacationed in Daytona Beach. The ferris wheel seats have changed but the funky, slightly seedy atmosphere has not. Of course, while I'm not scared when the ferris wheel stops at the top any more, it would have been fun to share with... More

The boardwalk is small with some souvenir shops and a couple of arcades. There is also a spot with a couple of rides (way overpriced for what you get). We enjoyed walking around down to the stage area where they had some nice live music. The ocean was a nice backdrop. Enjoyable.

The boardwalk was so fun. The games and food alone were great. The little places to sit and observe the ocean and birds was one of the best parts to our trip! New Years vacation was a success!

Nicer than I remembered from way back. Seemed user friendly and safe and clean and not "spring-beakish" at all. Has various souvenir shops, places to eat and of course the beach and ocean. It was a cool day when we went, so we parked right there.

There are homeless people everywhere begging for money, the rides look like they're about to fall apart... Just a sad scary place. I would not want to come back, definitely not afternoon dark!
