Things to Do

You are only 166 steps to the Beach!
Here are our top 15 fun Boardwalk activities:

  1. Walk out onto the 14th street fishing pier for a little sight-seeing, or drop a line and do some fishing yourself.
  2. Rent a bike and explore the boardwalk and the entire resort area. Or better yet, rent a 4-person bike for the entire family.
  3. Stroll off the boardwalk at 13th street and explore the legends walk.
  4. Make your way down the 3 mile boardwalk on wheels — go rollerblading!
  5. Sit down and relax on a bench and people watch.
  6. Cool down with a snow cone or an ice cream cone.
  7. Catch a summer series concert at the 31st street Neptune Park.
  8. Go shopping at 31 Ocean Shopes — with designer dud from Moorea and Island Breeze and a unique collection of souvenirs and gifts at Seaside Flags and Gifts, there’s something for everyone.
  9. Get spooked at the Haunted House or laugh it up at the Fun House on 19th street.
  10. Check out the boardwalk and resort area from the water — go sailing, parasailing, jet skiing, dolphin watching, or on a speed boat ride.
  11. Head over to Jungle Golf on 23rd street for a fun family game of miniature golf.
  12. Go to the Amusement Park on 15th street — home to the skyscraper Thrill Ride, sending passengers 165 feet through the air!
  13. Catch a Sunrise dolphin watching trip.
  14. Step onto Atlantic Avenue and enjoy Beach Street USA — a variety of free nightly performances as you stroll along Atlantic Avenue between 17th and 31st streets.
