The Boardwalk structure is beautiful and some of the stores are definitely worth a visit. However, there are some bars and stores that are pretty rough and we really weren't sure we wanted to be around too late into the evening. It seems that there...More

Carolina Beach is wonderful and a great place to visit. Fantastic long beach with clean soft sand. Great for walking, swimming and sunbathing. While there, it’s worth a stroll on the Boardwalk. It is nicely designed and has several benches and bench swings. It’s just...More

I may be biased because we were here on a beautiful, sunny Monday. It wasn't crowded, easy to find parking and the beach is gorgeous and well maintained. The boardwalk is newly built and has a pavilion and neat swings overlooking the beach and water....More

Fun for the family. We loved the fireworks on the fourth. There are several smaller rides and some local shops and eateries.

We had heard of this thing called the Carolina Beach Boardwalk, but we assumed it was a place filled with t-shirt shops and such. It is not. It is an actual boardwalk that is very nicely constructed and perfect for a stroll on a summer...More

We may go back at another time. Not sure yet. The boardwalk itself was okay. There were swings but they did not have cover from the sun. Most of the shops ONLY TAKE CASH. It was VERY inconvenient. They have ATM machines everywhere, for a...More

This seemed different than other boardwalks in that it wasn't along the beach like most others. I saw a couple "rows" of shops off the beach - before the beach access walkway. It wasn't very much so you probably found it.
