Not a huge variety of places, but something to do. Restaurants ranged from fancy to fast food. Some clothing stores, also. It's right on the boardwalk so worth a walk through if you're there.

Not many shops open now I hope this is temporary. The Starbucks with the nicest views in the world has gone. Plenty places to eat and the jewellery shop selling Pandora is still open.

We walked thru here after being at Caesars. Initially we thought it was closed as there are so many vacant units. It's a shame because it has great views along the Boardwalk and onto the beach and ocean, but it's fairly empty.

The view from the 3rd floor is absolutely amazing! I could sit there all day and just take it all in. Great shops! Loved wet willie's and its sugar most.

What used to be the Ocean One Mall, which was nice back in the day and previously revamped into a great attraction for a few years has now died again. They took the water show out to make this nightlife entertainment hot spot. Epic Fail!!!!...More

The best thing about going to The Playground is the scenic views. It was very relaxing to sit in the chair and look out over the water. At the end of the place you can go outside and overlook the water. The stores were good,...More

Good morning. It's correct: Pier Shop is Playground. To watch the ocean you can take a coffee to Starbucks and seat to watch. I think that Candy store is the best that you can find inside.

The water show has been gone since at least October 2014, sadly. The sand on the 3rd floor is gone but the Adirondack chairs are still there and a great place for ocean gazing and people watching.
