Beaches were clean, groomed, and inviting. The boardwalk itself was maintained and patrolled regularly. Plenty of restaurants, side attractions and shopping. Public restrooms were maintained and accessible, beaches are all handicap accessible. Great fun in the sun and the sand and the sea

Love the boardwalk. So many sights, sounds and a great place to people watch. Lots of food choices, bars, stores and attractions. View sand sculptures on the beach, watch local street artists and best part is the boardwalk is smoke free.

It won't be in full swing, but there will be plenty to do- don't worry! Focus on the very end/beginning of the boardwalk and you'll be fine.
