This three-mile concrete promenade is always busy with bicyclists, strollers, diners and people-watchers. During the summer, three oceanfront stages offer nightly entertainment.

Nice people watching place. Only walking, no shopping off the boardwalk. Nothing special just a level 3 mile walk

This is a beautiful boardwalk running for quite a distance. It even has a two lane bike path, which is very nice. One of the best boardwalks that we've visited. The beach was very nice as well with lots going on.
