Trail & Path Info

The wide boardwalk is well-kept but can be a bit crowded on just about any nice summer day.

The boardwalk itself will take you from a great food shack in the south to the Manasquan Inlet on the north, for a total length of about 1 mile (1 way).

Special / Seasonal Events

The boardwalk has special events throughout the year. This includes:

  • The annual Easter Egg hunt on the beach!
  • Weekly fireworks during the summer (usually Thursday).
  • Fun winter/holiday events.

Picnics / Lunches / Eating

Lots of food choices up and down the length of the boardwalk can be found. We usually hit up Joey Tomato's (near the golf course/fun house) or the pretzel shop. If you go, please grab us a pretzel :)

Admission & Guidelines

Admission to the boardwalk is free. But admission to the beach is not.

Hours / Season of Operation

The boardwalk itself is open 365 days a year. The games and food are limited to warmer months. Indoor eateries and arcades are (usually) open all year round.
