Every kind of food you can imagine, shops offering fine jewelry, home decoration, and everything you need for the beach. Amusement rides that keep the kids smiling all night. Perfect family fun!

Young and old alike will love this special place with over 3 miles of ocean view! Early mornings with bike rides and breakfast on the boards, afternoons at amusement piers or miniature golf, then nights of pizza, Kohr's Kustard, and always Johnson's Popcorn to enjoy....More

Since my first visit in 1967 the boardwalk has remained a joy for me...and now, my grandchildren. No booze means no boozy, loudmouths. Lots of buskers, mini-golf and food that I really shouldn't eat...but it's great.

Beware of the crowded beaches. They only allow you to swim between flags placed in the sand by the lifeguards. The lifeguards crowd all the swimmers into a small space and it's ridiculous. All that beach and such a limited swimming area. Delaware and Maryland...More

Some of the arcades are indoors. There is an AC aquarium nearby that's good for young kids. Lots of restaurants & coffee shops to kill time in.

Gillian's, on occasion in the afternoon, offers a band for $20 per person which allows each child to ride all afternoon. I would suggest if this is of interest to you to phone to see which day if any the offer is given. As... More
