From New York’s famed Coney Island to skateboarders and sea views in San Diego, these iconic beach boardwalks are freeways to fun.

Sure, most boardwalks tempt with scents of popcorn and saltwater taffy, but there’s something especially sublime about the aromas and eats along this mile-long, wood walk on the Delaware coast. Here, you’ll happily rove back and forth from the Atlantic Boardwalk Grille, which serves up a grouper sandwich of the day, to time-honored beach munchies like Thrasher’s fries, Kohr Bros. frozen custard, and the more than 70 flavors available at The Ice Cream Store. Rehoboth’s melodic menu is just as eclectic: The Clear Space Theatre Company presents a summer-long slate of performances, from one-man shows to rousing musicals like Chicago.
STAY AT THE BELLMOOR INN & SPA: Two blocks from the beach, The Bellmoor’s European decor lends the place a bygone feel.
