Nothing says summertime in the U.S. quite like strolling along a beachfront boardwalk in the morning watching the ocean begin to wake up or at night as fireworks sparkle in the distance. Boardwalks are tiny cities of their own with diverse activities such as souvenir shops, eateries, and fun-filled attractions like amusement parks and entertainment.
Vacationing to the coast? Look for these bright and loud galas whether you are biking, rollerblading, or simply enjoying an night stroll taking in the wonders of the promenade.
