America's Best Boardwalks

Fresh seafood, kitschy shops, and deep-fried Oreos are just a few of the things you'll find along the boardwalks that hug America's shorelines, but they're not all carbon copies. Some boardwalks are quirky, some family-friendly, while others are geared toward thrill-seekers. No matter what, the best boardwalks offer unforgettable experiences on the waterfront, with great entertainment, food, and aquatic life. From Chicago to Texas, from Los Angeles to New York, these are America's best boardwalks.
