If you want to get some moderate exercise.... then a boardwalk stroll is for you. Nice view of the beach and the hotels....meanwhile the military jets streak across the sky.

Great beach & boardwalk! Some of the best people watching around, in the summer. Recommend staying at 21st Street or higher. It gets sketchier below that.

Nice place to spend time with family. This is a pretty regulated beach and I would say is family friendly. The long board walk has many stores and restaurants. There are plenty of hotels and things to do.

The boardwalk really allows you to take in the amazing beauty of the beach. While most of the actual attractions are along the two main roads, this is a great place to enjoy a nice stroll.

Boardwalk is surrounded on the land side by hotels, and their accompanying restaurants and bars. A must walk! Neptune and dolphins and waves!
