This three-mile concrete promenade is always busy with bicyclists, strollers, diners and people-watchers. During the summer, three oceanfront stages offer nightly entertainment.

Very long boardwalk, loved the little sculpture displays along the way between hotels. Many restaurants to choose from, great for spending the day at the beach.

Really enjoyed the Mile of Lights display. It was great to be able to drive, as the weather was bitter. Great for families! Didn't go on the boardwalk otherwise.

We were able to see the festival of lights during our visit. The lights were amazing. It was so worth the trip. We paid $4.00 per car.
