The boardwalk is free to access anytime of the year. The shops, stores and restaurants can vary their open times during the off season. The weather is the biggest factor if placers are open.

As others have stated, it never really closes.  In cooler weather, stores are just open on weekends.

The boardwalk never closes! Most boardwalk businesses are open until at least Columbus Day. Many remain open later than that one weekends, and many are open year round on weekends when the weather is nice.

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

Hi Ashley,

The boardwalk never really closes.  The shops and entertainment on the board walk usually stays open until late September.  After that, more and more places are staying open year round. October is one of my favorite months in OC!
