Great place to meet to spend time with family and friends in a relaxed setting. On one side, many store fronts to see and experience... On the other side is the beautiful sun sand and ocean. The area is kept very clean by the staff...More

Definitely one of the largest, active and family friendly boardwalks in Jersey. The tickets are pretty expensive for the rides so choose carefully or check dates for discounted rates. The restaurants and shops are very well priced though and affordable fo families.

The food options certainly don't get it a better score. Nothing but pizza and other food that is terrible for a healthy diet. We leave and go for a meal elsewhere.
