So nice to see the boardwalk being rebuilt. Very clean and new places coming. Rooftop golf is a lot of fun as well as taking a ride on the sky chairs.

It depends where you are. If you are close on the North end there are very clean public restrooms. Further south, there are no public restrooms, just the ocean.
