My family had never been to a boardwalk before, and we highly enjoyed the OC Boardwalk. There was a variety of cute stores with souvenirs, salt water taffy, and more fried food than you ever could imagine. We stopped for lunch at the Hula Grill, which was delicious, and later had a snack of funnel cake. Make sure to stop in the dollar store- they offer $1 drinks, which is a steal on the boardwalk. After walking awhile, it seemed like every store repeated itself, but was definitely fun for a few hours.
