New Jersey And Maryland Boardwalks Named Best In The US
The best in the country aren’t far away as New Jersey and Maryland boardwalks have been named some of the best in the country!
Growing up the boardwalk was the place to be!
The shops, the food, the rides, and the best part: the people!
If there was a ranking for the best people watching spot in the world the Wildwood Boardwalk might win the top spot.
The boardwalk is the only place in the world where you can ride a roller coaster, go to an oxygen bar, and overspend on a hermit crab all at the same time!
We are lucky to be within driving distance of some of the best beaches and boardwalks in the US.
As a kid we would frequent Myrtle Beach almost every summer. Every summer we would go to the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk & Promenade.
And every summer I would buy a new magic trick that would break immediately and my dad would then have to argue with the magic shop owner about a refund.
Love those memories.
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk & Promenade was actually ranked 5th on the Best Boardwalks in America rankings from StudyFinds.
New Jersey and Maryland boardwalks also appeared on the list!
The Atlantic City Boardwalk was named the Best Boardwalk in America according to StudyFinds.
“Not only is Atlantic City’s boardwalk the nation’s longest, it is also the oldest in the country, dating back to 1870. The 1,000-foot Steel Pier amusement park is a fun time, offering casinos, restaurants, and sweets shops” StudyFinds writes.
Of course you also find plenty of casinos and music festivals along the Atlantic City Boardwalk. My dad also told me of vivid memories of a high diving horse on one of the piers.
The Ocean City Maryland Boardwalk was ranked 2nd!
“The Ocean City Boardwalk was originally built as a removable wooden walkway in 1902 until a permanent five-block path was built in 1910, though it was destroyed by a storm in 1962. The rebuilt boardwalk offers a lively scene with amusement park rides and iconic summertime treats like Maryland crab cakes and homemade saltwater taffy” according to StudyFinds.
I am still upset Wildwood didn’t make the list! Clearly the rankers never went to Ed’s Funcade.
