Format: Hardcover
America's Boardwalks is a stylish book that took me back to my childhood vacations on the Jersey Shore. In reading the chapters on Wildwood and Atlantic City, I could almost smell the salt sea air mingled with boardwalk food smells. Remenber Salt water taffy? Diving horses? Various "wild" men and women? Carnies with all sorts of games?

Anyone who has "walked the boards" is sure to take a similar trip down memory lane. It's a great read!

Format: Hardcover
I love the stories and people in this book and the forgotten histories about these great American boardwalks. Anyone who grew up going to the shore on summer afternoons will find something they remember and identify with in this book. The real "boardwalk empire" is a place in our memories that will never die.

I love boardwalks, and have done a lot of walking on the ones in Rehoboth Beach, DE and Ocean City, MD. While I have other books about the history of these places, I enjoyed the background stories of some of the folks who are working there today. I also enjoyed reading about the boardwalks I'm not familiar with. I know a lot about the history of Coney Island, but I had no idea it was going strong today. My only nit-pick...Grotto is NOT the best pizza in Rehoboth...Louie's is.
