Had a brief visit while in town for work. Rented bikes at a small gift shop and rode up and down the boardwalk. It's a beautiful beach with a relaxed atmosphere.

The boardwalk is great for walking, running or biking. There are great places to get coffee or have a meal. The roller coaster is awesome
