Running the Classic Boardwalks

Running or walking along an oceanside boardwalk is a classic summer pastime. These promenades are generally dedicated paths along the water, often with restaurants, bars, shops, and amusements. The true classics are those dating back to the early 20th century, mainly in New York and New Jersey. In Europe, some of what we call boardwalks are ‘promenades’. This list is a few of our favorites — and generally different than an oceanside road/sidewalk/bikepath. This list is not in order of ‘best’, but more sorted by geography.
