HAMPTON — The quaint seaside town in New Hampshire makes #2 on Coastal Living's list for best beach boardwalks. The old-school boardwalk offers free concerts, volleyball courts, talent shows, beauty pageants, and seafood festivals. On the 1.3 mile long boardwalk, you can shop, dine, dance and enjoy a view of the Atlantic. Topping the list is New York's charming coastal town Coney Island, a boardwalk that offers roller coasters, mermaid parades and an escape from the big city. Also making Coastal Living's list was, Hollywood Beach, Florida, Atlantic City, New Jersey and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
