The Boardwalk never closes but the stores start closing as the seasons get cooler.

The boardwalk never closes. Many businesses are open everyday through Columbus Day and many businesses are open on weekends if the weather is nice a year-round.

Boardwalk favorites  Thrasher's Fries, Dumser's ice cream, Fisher's popcorn (my favorite!), Candy Kitchen are often open almost all weekends all year if the weather is decent. Marty's Playland arcade is open almost everyday all year.

It never really closes.  Most businesses are closed in the dead of winter, but Thrashers, Candy Kitchen and Fishers are open on the weekends all year long.  Some jewellery and  clothing shop are open as well.  We have eaten French fries on the Boardwalk in March while catching snowflakes on our tongue.

The boardwalk NEVER closes completely. There is always something open year round. The rides and boardwalk games do close completely by the end of September.  But you can find shops, bars, and restaurants open on the boardwalk year round.  Some may only open weekends though once we're into late fall and during the winter.
