The Point Pleasant Beach boardwalk is approximately one mile long, spanning the coastline from the Manasquan Inlet at the north to New Jersey Avenue in the south. The central third of the boardwalk is jam-packed with amusement rides, arcades, pizza joints, ice cream parlors, games-of-chance and miniature golf courses.
