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

Definitely an upgrade from when I visited many many years ago. The beaches were nice, the boardwalk is wide, and there is a bike path to keep everyone safe.

Lots of space to walk. Clean and family friendly. More of a night life town. It works out because it doesn't get too busy during the day.

A nice walk and people watch in the morning and evening. Really close to the hotel so you can watch from the balcony.

Clean. Not much to do on boardwalk. Could use some shops. Nice when we were there, there was an art show on the boardwalk.

It's clean and nice but not the most fun place to visit. Ocean City MD is much dirtier but more exciting with more stuff to do

Very nice boardwalk, kept very clean, we felt very safe at all hours! It was patrolled by police on horses, bikes, and cars! Beautifully lit up at night with lots to do!

I would check hotels for reservation availability and also transportation from the train station.
Is the boardwalk a good place to go for an early morning run (before 9 am)?
