  • Visited this great place during the low season. It was very quiet with a good number of people enjoying strolling on the boardwalk. The beach area was literally empty. Most of the businesses were closed but quite a number were open. We had a great time.
  • Went for a 3 milk walk (1.5 each way) on the boardwalk today. Yes, it's the typical boardwalk, so on the one side you have the gorgeous ocean waves and wide, long, beach and then on the other side are the typical boardwalk shops. They've really been fixing up the atmosphere though. Each year I see several improvements. I love to see the marked historic hotels, but I also like to see the improved/renovated/replaced hotels and structures. Of course if you want to people watch for entertainment, you won't be disappointed! Overall, I had a super peaceful day. The OC boardwalk is a classic and a symbol of Americana.
