America's Best Beach Boardwalks

Outdoor activities are serious business year-round along this three-mile boardwalk that runs along Pacific and Mission beaches. Here you’ll find rental gear for surfing, kayaking, bodyboarding, biking, and beach volleyball, as well as beach toys at Hamel’s Surf Shop. Plus, the Belmont Park amusement park scores with its Big Dipper roller coaster and other stomach-churning rides. Too much SoCal sun? Visit The Plunge, the Olympic-size indoor pool.
Don’t Miss: Grabbing an outdoor table and Shaka Caesar Salad at Wave House Bar & Grill. Watch the surfers at the adjacent FlowRider, an artificial wave-generating machine for beginners, and the FlowBarrel, a continuous 10-foot barrel-wave for pros.
