The National Geographic did polling of the best boardwalks and the pictures are in order from one to ten. The boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey made the #1 boardwalk. I actually lived in New Jersey many years ago and can say I had a few trips to the boardwalk and I must say I had more fun in the casinos at the time. 😉 I think having casinos on the boardwalk was probably the item that boosted them to the number 1 spot. But, I guess what else could you ask for fun, sand, beach and casinos all wrapped in one.
When I think of boardwalks I am reminded of nothing but fun and good times. I also think of the smell of all the various kinds of oooghy googhy sticky foods being served there such as candy apples, saltwater taffy and butter toffee! We can’t forget all the cold sodas, fried foods and the hot dogs being served up. Oh and I can’t forget about ice cream cones. I love them and when I visited the boardwalk I would always get one mixed with chocolate and vanilla. I always feel like I have gained a few pounds after I leave.
I have a confession I really love all the neat souvenirs and t-shirt shops that are all over the place. I have this thing for going into all the surf shops and t-shirt shops! I don’t why but I just love that stuff. I guess it’s the reminders of a good time.
I will admit I am a bit smitten with the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Have any of you visited any of the above boardwalks? If so, what were your thoughts? Any special food you enjoyed?
