America's Best Beach Boardwalks
Mark E. Gibson/Corbis
Virginia Beach Boardwalk, Virginia Beach, VA
This three-mile-long boardwalk celebrates the ocean. It wends its way past a statue of Neptune, god of the sea; the Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum and its crafted decoys; and the historic Old Coast Guard Station, which sells fun nautical gifts. Parents and kids love the four-seat surrey bikes, the small family-friendly parks, and the 15th Street Amusement Park, with its wild spinning Skyscraper ride.
