Besides the rides, there are indoor attractions - Neptune's Kingdom, Sector 7, Casino Fun Center and Surf Bowl for bowling. I enjoyed playing the two-story miniature golf course in Neptune's Kingdom. Casino Fun Center has more than 100 video games. The only one I enjoyed was shooting against objects with a rifle. Sector 7 has laser tag game for those who like high-energy hide-and-seek. Also alongside the entire boardwalk, there are game booths. I played some hoops and shooting games and won a small stuffed animal.
However, the one that I enjoyed the most is the walk on the beach. I went there at 10 AM and there weren’t that many people. Around noon, there were lots of sun worshippers on the beach. I saw a mom and 3 or 4 year old kid playing in the water, lots of kids trying to get into the water, few kids learning to surf on their new surf boards, some building sand castles, a mom and daughter sleeping on the beach, two elderly women with about 6 teen girls who just arrived on the beach and lots of people walking on the waters edge.
I also could see small fishing boats near the Santa Cruz wharf. On the wharf, there are several good seafood restaurants and this is where they hold art, food and wine festivals.

The boardwalk is generally pretty crowded like all amusement parks, so come prepared to deal with crowds and lines. Parking can be difficult, but there are lots which generally charge a flat rate of around $6.00 for a days worth of parking. You probably want to bite the bullet and pay this since there is no free parking anywhere near the Boardwalk.
