Looking for a REALLY long boardwalk that's only a bit crowded on the weekends and pretty quiet at other times? Start off at the very beginning at it's north entrance, or a little farther down at Father Capodanno Blvd. and Sand Lane. At the latter point there is a sea food restaurant and a few snack places. Bath and changing rooms are a bit south of the Sand Lane entrance, where there is also parking. A wide beach, it's dotted with wooded and bushy areas. I hope you like the sun, because there is NO SHADE except at a pavilion with a few seats at the Sand Lane entrance. If you like to fish, walk all the way south (away from the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, which is behind you) and make your way to the new fishing pier, where there are soda machines and working fountains to clean your fish. A real dream-day for sun lovers! Wear a hat! Also, the boardwalk is wheelchair accessible by ramp. And I just remembered that on the other side of the boardwalk (the west side) in a few spots there are park facilities, even a bocce court, when you can keep the kids busy.
