Hello Insiders, I'm planning a trip in late March and was wondering if the Boardwalk activities will be open? Thanks!

on the weekend, Trimpers Rides may be open.  Some of the stores and restaurants may be open, especially on the weekend.  other things to do:  Indoor Mini golf (or outdoors, weather permitting) at the Old Pro mini golf courses, going to the movies if the weather is not good.  Some of the theatres have reclining seats,  indoor ice skating at the Carousel Hotel, dining at the many ocean front, bay front, and street front restaurants, walking the boardwalk, sunsets, sunrises, collecting sea shells, OC life Saving museum, swimming in the indoor pool of your hotel if applicable, and so much more.  Read the local tourist guides and free newspapers for more to do.

There will still be a good number of restaurants open in town and the bars and clubs are open (Seacrets, Dead Freddies, Greene Turtle, BJ's On The Water).  These are not on the Boardwalk, but are fun places to visit.

As long as it is on a weekend and decent weather, there will be more than enough fun activities to keep you busy!

If you are hoping that the rides and games, etc. will be open, you'll be disappointed because they don't open until late May. Some places like Playland will be open for some arcade games.  Thrasher's Fries and Fisher's Popcorn will be open but with limited hours.  You can look at all activities at http://www.ococean.com/events

In late March, especially the last week that is a popular Spring Break week, about half of the stores on the boardwalk will be open during the weekend and fewer on weekdays. On really nice weather days, more stores are open, and if the weather is poor, fewer stores are open., and fe
