Excellent Boardwalk!!! Lots of little shops offering candy, snacks, clothes,souvenirs and lots of rides. Very pleasant group of tourists walking around. Much nicer and safer than Atlantic City.

While living in Michigan as a child, my New Jersey relatives would talk about "Going to the shore ". Now I know what they meant. What a lovely boardwalk. So many cute shops and boutiques. I especially loved the Polish ice. It was wonderful.

There's a place a block or two off the boardwalk called Spadafora's Seafood. Excellent food. I had lobster and my mother had scallops. Nice wait staff too. I highly recommend it.
