Very sleezy at night, lots of homeless people asking for money but the best seafood restaurants seem to be here. We felt slightly threatened after dark

The Boardwalk is still a great place for a date, day with the kids or just a place for a group to have something for everyone. Good food, rides, arcades and shopping.

As long as it is not a weekend, it is easy to get to the Boardwalk and to find parking (paid, of course- I bring quarters but there are also pay lots). Games, rides, arcades, and a fun little ,miniture golf course make for a fin day with the kids.

I have wanted to visit for the best part of 20 years and finally made the trip from England. I loved every single thing about the Boardwalk. It did not disappoint.

Being from the east coast, I've hit almost all the boardwalks from New Jersey down to Daytona Beach and the Santa Cruz boardwalk blows them away!! Games are around $3 which can get a little pricey but unlimited choices in rides for all ages! It's like it's own amusement park that you can walk for free. We didn't devote near enough time to the attraction. We are staying in San Jose, so made the 40 minute car ride down on a Sunday. No problem with parking at all. Definitely the best boardwalk we have ever been to!
