“So Much Fun!!!!!”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

We visited for one evening and wish we could spend a few days. There are many, many little souvenir shops, food stands, arcades, amusement rides, silly attractions and people. Parking was available on the street. We walked the entire boardwalk, played games, shopped and grabbed a delicious pizza. The beach looked clean and very large. There were sand sculptures on the beach that were really cool. The only issue might be the amount of late teens in groups later at night. We did not visit the surrounding area just the boardwalk.

“Full of noisy bros.”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

If you like shouting, overly tanned teens with far too much product in their hair and trying to start fights with anything that moves by them too fast, then this is the place for you. Not me though. I enjoy not having to listen to someone elses music being played through the magnificent sounding cell phone speakers. It was a bit dirty and the boardwalk employees are quite rude (even witness one spit on someone). It looks like the armpit of America is extending its reach.

“The kiddo loved the arcades and ice cream shops”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

My child asked me for only one thing on this trip: to go the arcades on the boardwalk. He loved the games (despite losing a lot of money), and loved the ice cream shops, too. He didn't mind shopping too much because there were soccer balls and toys to look at. We liked our time spent on the boardwalk.

We only had a chance to visit the boardwalk on our last night. The boardwalk is booming with so many things to do for everyone. The kids loved the arcades and we had not trouble parking in a lot. Although the boardwalk is very busy, we still enjoyed browsing the stores and had an ice cream at Dumser's dairyland.

It was so beautiful and picturesque that we will definitely have to go back.

We went with adults and kids ages 9 and 12.

“Not enjoying it as much as we used tto”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Great little shops but just too crowded to take a nice walk. Unless you go during the day. Sand art sculptures are always cool to see abd we even saw a decent nagician this time. But not sure if it's worth the crowds you have to battle. And it seems like more people are smoking there, too, which is a definite negative to nonsmokers. We couldn't seem to escape it except in stores.
