“Not your traditional boardwalk, but still fun”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

This area is not on the beach like a traditional boardwalk, it's on the other side of the dunes. It's made up of a bunch of little buildings with shops, snacks, and an arcade. There are also carnival type rides for the kids. The buildings were a little aged, and it wasn't as clean as other areas of the beach. We went for the fireworks, which were spectacular! This area is geared towards kids (which we were not traveling with), so besides the food, didn't appeal to us.

“GET RID OF THE SKATEBOARDERS!”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

We've been coming to the CB Boardwalk for years. We decided to take the kids to play Mini Golf and I could not believe my eyes. 3 Kids on skateboards were dangerously riding along the sidewalk and I counted 4 times that the skateboard took flight and almost hit nearby small children walking by. Then another skateboarder sent his skateboard flying into the air and landing inside the entrance of Hurricane Alley where a couple got hit! Where is CB law enforcement??? I've got nothing against skateboading, in the right enviorment. But putting children in danger whom are just trying to enjoy a nice night out is just stupid!

“Not a lot there for older children, or adults”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Typical Carny fair. Britt's doughnuts were highly recommended but most of the family were like "eh". A little sketchy after dark. Fireworks on Thursday nights were nice for the kids. Wish it was kept up a little better.

“Great For People Watching, Get A Donut...”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Grab A Bench And Set A While, Y'All. You Will See Everything From Drifters To Well Dressed Couples To Plebian Locals. The Best Benches Are Around Britt's Donuts. After 30 Minutes, You Sure Can See Why The Obesity Rate In The U.S. Is So High.
