Occasionally you want to take a break from the cottage/beach life and this little tourist trap makes you want to purchase must needed junk. Grab a quick bite/snack, peruse the shops, and just enjoy a little conversation with the people working there. Also a lovely...More

I was expecting a bigger facility, better maintained with all the hype of this area. Yes, the place was busy, cows merchandise store was fun, nothing really else was worth looking into.

There's something for everyone here, from souvenir shopping to sit-down restaurants, to ice cream. It's definitely a tourist trap, but it's a lovely place to get a few fun souvenirs and a bite to eat. :)

Nice variety of shops to choose from. Bought a nice dress and outfit from How Bazzar. They had a sale. Lots to see throughout, with lots of souvenir shops. Also found a great place to stop for soft serve ice cream. It was really good.

When I hear the word Boardwalk I usually think that it is near water. This place was not that it was just a small shopping and eating area. Nothing special unless you want to shop for trinkets and shirts and eat at soso restaurants.

Wasn't a lot of people (which Im OK with), most stores had the same items. The best part of the Boardwalk was the Poutine I had from the little shop out front. Very friendly, and talkative. All other places, would hardly look sideways or speak....More
