Well... I heard a lot of nice things about the place.. and I hated it.. The pier is terrible, what they selling there is cheap and awful.. and loads of homeless people around.. Nothing special.. I would never go there again..
ps. loads of traffic also...and shops extremely expensive

Its wonderful to walk around on the boardwalk and see all there is to see.. so many people going for a run and just enjoying the outdoors.. plenty of places to rent a bike and pedal around.. really great area.

Beautiful wide beach with easy access (convenient parking).
Tons of things to do (amusement park, the pier, etc...) or just relax with a good book.
