We're local and we just love to ride the bike trail parallel to the boardwalk. Plenty of great places to eat and drink, then just a short ride to see music at a half dozen free music venues. From Watermans to Catch 31, there is so much entertainment!

Can enjoy the clean beach, have fun and offers entertainment in the warmer weather times. Many good restaurants and hotels along the Boardwalk. Safe place to walk and bike as well!

Great tourist attraction even though I have been here since February 2016. I still love to go down occasionally and pick up items for family back home :)

You can't drive on this during the morning (only bikes and pedestrians). But during certain months, at night, you can drive and look at the lights they set up on the beach.

We live there and enjoy the activities as well as the less active off season months. There is a boardwalk for walkers and a separate bike path... More
