Nice beach 🌴

A tradition to walk even in winter. Bundle up and take in the sights. The crescent moon is out tonight. Anytime is a good time to have your toes in the water.

I felt like I was stepping into a time machine. Of course there are modern stores and an updated section of the boardwalk, but when you get close to the end it is all old school! There was something for everyone, Arcade for my son, beer for the husband and stroller friendly for the baby! A must see in Ocean... More

My BF took me here as part of my birthday celebration. We arrived around noon, on a beautiful sunny Fall Saturday. The water was cold, the day was windy, requiring a light sweater. We walked from 16th street to end of the boardwalk, foot traffic was light. Mostly all the restaurants were closed, however, there were a few novelty stores... More

The boardwalk was not busy as it would be during the warmer months. It was quiet and relaxing- easier to navigate less crowded.

Seems to cater to teens and preteens with $$. And there are no restaurants open in November, despite all those people searching for food. Just because it is a summer resort, doesn't mean it's a ghost town in winter... especially given winterfest lights festival. Lots of kids racing around on bikes and scooters... all over. Was more fun playing in... More

Nice thanksgiving weather and nice walk on the boardwalk but it is a dead place in November. Streets are quite and empty the way I like them , but don't stay at the Clarion inn because of my experience.

We are here in the off season, so we didn't expect anything to be open. A few places were though. We love walking on the boardwalk, we also love to "people watch" this boardwalk is always clean and i feel safe here. I don't ever see "bad" people milling about. Compared to other boardwalks, this one is top for us.

There are benches for you to sit on and most are dedicated to someones loved one. Great food. Lots of things for the kids to do and some are FREEII Loved walking down the Boardwalk and hearing the waves crash, the smell of the water. Eating Famous Thrashers and Fishers Pop Corn which is a must!!!

We love taking our grandchildren on the boardwalk especially in October when all the Halloween excitement is going on. The best is the Maze on the beach!!! The dress up dog parade and so many other things to do.
