New Jersey, Delaware boardwalks make National Geographic’s top 10

    Atlantic City has the top boardwalk in the nation. This according to National Geographic, which has just released its list of the top 10.

    A.C.’s four-mile walk topped the list for its glitz and neon, but other area boards made the cut, too.


    Delaware’s Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk came in at No. 6 for its ability to keep the nostalgia through its recent facelift. At the bottom of the list, you’ll find Wildwood. Its water parks, roller coasters and boardwalk food earned the two-mile stretch the No. 10 spot. No mention of the persistent “watch the Tramcar, please,” warning.

    But of course, no one knows a boardwalk like its pedestrians. You’ve dumped money into the casinos, gorged yourself on funnel cake and missed the choice prize by a single balloon dart toss. So you tell us. Share your reasons for loving the nation’s top boardwalk. Not thrilled with it? Tell us why and what you think deserves the top spot. Feed the Feed.
