Can you walk to the boardwalk from 76th Street? Or how far away is it?

Submitted by Kate M, Pearl River NY on August 5, 2019

You can walk there but it would be about a 5-7 mile walk.  The bus would be a much easier option.  The Boardwalk starts at the Inlet and ends at 27th Street.  The rides and the more heavily traveled areas are below 5th Street.  The bus can take you right to the start of the Boardwalk.

There is a new Virtual Reality place across from the Carousel.  Tea Boss (boba tea) is in the same shopping center (by the Food Lion).

 Any suggestions where I can pay to park my trailer?

Submitted by Charles R, Tamaqua PA on August 1, 2019

Any of the local self storage places offer trailer parking for a (small) fee.  Local campgrounds offer trailer parking as well.  You can find a list of them on the internet and choose the one closest to you.  Rates do vary, so try a few of them.
