      Step right up to the best boardwalks

      With views of the ocean, easy access to the sand, and a range of amusements and things to do, not to mention great people-watching, boardwalks are the heart of a great waterfront getaway. We love walking the boards at any time of day—catching the sunrise in the morning, strolling to get a snack in the afternoon, and watching the lights come on as the sun sets and the action picks up in the evening. Beaches and beach boardwalks are also greatfamily vacation destinations, especially if you book a stay at a nearbybeach house rental, which could turn it into a surprisinglyaffordable beach vacation, too.

      How we chose our top 20

      To find the best beach boardwalks around America, we first created a list of criteria. The top requirement, of course, was a stellar location with a sandy beach, as well as water (although not necessarily an ocean). The boardwalks didn’t have to be made of wood, but they did need to be more than a simple sidewalk. And while there are plenty of lovely quiet wooden walkways around the country, our choices needed to have plenty for visitors to see and do at some of thebest beachesin the country. To make sure our picks were truly the best, we considered recommendations from travel experts and online reviews of these destinations. In short, we did a lot of work so you don’t have to! Just scroll down for the perfect beachside spot and some serious fun in the sun.

      Atlantic City, New Jersey

      Best for: Grown-up entertainment

      For pure history, Atlantic City is a must for all boardwalk lovers and an East Coast vacation you need to take at least once. It sports the longest boardwalk in the world, at 5.5 miles, and also the oldest, first offering visitors the chance to stroll the sand-free walkway in 1870. It was here that Miss America was first crowned, where diving horses thrilled the crowd, and where thrills of other kinds later followed with legalized gambling and family-friendly adrenaline rides. Today, Steel Pier still offers up an adrenaline rush for kids of all ages, and new casinos and restaurants—including a Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and the Ocean Casino & Resort—continue to join classic saltwater taffy and fudge shops that line the vintage wooden boards.

      The 2.5-mile boardwalk along the eastern shore of Lake Michigan is a favorite of Parents Magazine for its family-friendly vibe.

It’s the world’s largest musical fountain of its kind and can easily be seen, and heard, from most of the Grand Haven Boardwalk.

      San Diego’s Ocean Front Boardwalk is a three-mile boardwalk running along Mission and Pacific beaches.

      Santa Cruz, California

      Best for: A classic carousel ride

      If you’re a movie buff, you’ll probably recognize this beachfront classic from The Lost Boys and Sudden Impact, among others. Although Hollywood-perfect, this boardwalk wasn’t built just for show; it’s been a northern California favorite since 1924. Don’t miss the classic carousel, where you can still grab for metal rings—a rarity in modern versions. Another “only here” feature: the Roaring Camp Railroad steam train that offers open-air rides right from the boardwalk through the soaring Redwood Forest. Looking for something more than a day trip? Make this just one of your stops on a California road trip.

      Pros:

Or take a thoroughly modern ride on the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel at Pacific Park.

      Pros:

      • Sun-powered spins on the Ferris wheel

      Disney World BoardWalk, Florida

      Best for: Disney magic

      OK, we know Orlando isn’t on the coast, but the same way Disney can create, say, the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars, it’s created a classic beach boardwalk right behind EPCOT. It’s a bit of nostalgia combined with Disney magic, and you’ll find surreys to peddle with your friends or family, arcade games, live entertainment, and plenty of sweet treats from ice cream to funnel cake.
