My girls loved all the carnival games and the ferris wheel, it goes up high so you can see the beach, the marina and a lot of the island. The boardwalk has plenty of ice cream/coffee/bars/restaurants so it is easy to find something to do....More

Variety of restaurants and activities all within walking distance. Boardwalk is clean and well-manicured. Many times we walked without shoes to the beach and decking wasn’t hot nor had splinters. Lots of places to sit in the shade though you really can’t see the ocean...More

We just returned from Carolina Beach. We loved the boardwalk. It was easy to walk, well lit at night. There are great little shops including Britt's donuts (awesome). It was a very festive place.

My husband and I always enjoy the Carolina Beach Boardwalk. There are cute stores, restaurants & a great view of the ocean. The amusement park is a nice added touch for that old timey beach feel.

The boardwalk had a few good spots, such as the small, but new, arcade and Britt’s Donut Shop, however for the most part it is pretty run down, and there are a lot of empty storefronts. Felt kind of dirty, and the evenings bring out...More

This seemed different than other boardwalks in that it wasn't along the beach like most others. I saw a couple "rows" of shops off the beach - before the beach access walkway. It wasn't very much so you probably found it.
