There are over 60 boardwalks dotting America’s coastlines, Yahoo.com highlights America’s Best Boardwalks. Some of our favorites include:
Atlantic City Boardwalk
This 5.5-mile stretch, the longest boardwalk in the world, once captured the country’s collective imagination with its glitzy acts and grand Art Deco and Beaux Art hotels—now dramatically revisited on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. The oldest boardwalk in the US is also enjoying a revival with the 2012 opening of the Revel resort. Its dizzying array of star chef-run restaurants includes a modern steak house by Marc Forgione, a Riviera-inspired seafood spot by Alain Allegretti and offshoots by DC chef Michel Richard and Philly chef Jose Garces. For a taste of old-time lore, the James Candy Company pulls saltwater taffy from recipes that date from the 1900s.
Ocean City Boardwalk
There’s a lot packed along this wooden boardwalk, including free concerts on Wednesday nights in July and August, outdoor movies and a Beach Olympics (think sand castle-building competitions). Thrasher’s, a favorite since 1929, serves french fries twice-fried in peanut oil and doused with apple cider vinegar. The no-frills Mug & Mallet serves terrific Maryland blue crabs by the bucket steps from the beach, and at Fractured Prune, hand-dipped doughnuts are named after classic desserts like the Black Forest, with raspberry glaze, coconut and mini chocolate chips.
