National Site Names New Jersey Boardwalk the Best in the U.S.
From Sandy Hook to Cape May there are many boardwalks.
Some are quaint, some are historic, and others are just a pathway to a party.
The national website Fodor's Travel named one Garden State boardwalk the best in all of America.
How about Asbury Park? This town and boardwalk have been through a lot over the past decades.
There's a chill vibe when you walk these boards. You can almost feel the musical history step by step.
It's not Asbury Park.
Ocean City perhaps? This boardwalk is always hopping with activity from the arcades and attractions. Nope.
Long Branch has a beautiful boardwalk and the best of both worlds.
If you want a relaxed stroll with just the sand and waves to occupy your attention, Long Branch has got it.
If you're looking for more excitement and entertainment, there's Pier Village.
If it's none of the above it's got to Wildwood, right? Wrong.
The designation of the best boardwalk in America goes to a famous town that often gets a bad rap.
Fodor's Travel says Atlantic City is home to the best boardwalk in the U.S. Here's what they had to say:
Atlantic City’s boardwalk is internationally famous. It is said to be the world’s first and longest boardwalk dating way back to 1870. The structure’s original intent was to protect the nearby hotels from unruly ocean waves, but over time, as the boardwalk grew to its current length of 5.5 miles, it became an international entertainment hub. Explore the high-end hotels and casinos like the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, or take a swing at Atlantic City Miniature Golf. Walk the adjacent piers, which offer visitors several additional attractions and shopping spots. Check out the Central Pier Arcade and Speedway for extensive choices of arcade games. At “Steel Pier,” take a ride on the carousel or the observation wheel overlooking the city. Nearby, “Garden Pier” is the arts and cultural center of the boardwalk, featuring the Atlantic City Historical Museum and Atlantic City Art Center.
