The boardwalk here is one of the busiest at the Shore, thanks to two amusement piers, a water park, wall-to-wall arcades, souvenir shops, informal dining like the Sawmill – think pizza, sausage sandwiches, clams on the half shell – and lively evening entertainment.
Check out Jenkinson's Breakwater Beach Water Park at Casino Pier, Casino Arcade or the Big Top Arcade to name a few.
In summer, free seaside entertainment includes movies on the beach, concerts and weekly fireworks displays. Plan a stay at one of the town's accommodations.
Although the summer sun is obviously a big draw, many popular events take place here year ’round, including rollicking Columbus Day and St. Patrick’s Day parades and the annual Polar Bear Plunge, where intrepid swimmers dive into the icy Atlantic in winter to raise money for the Special Olympics.
