Jenkinson's Boardwalk has been family owned and operated since 1928. It has changed hands since then but much of the same feel and atmosphere is still present. We have several rides that were once a fixture on the legendary Coney Island boardwalk, as well as many of the same games of chance that have been a part of the Jersey shore for the last 100 years. The boardwalk has been modernized over the years with new restaurants, arcades, rides, and one of the most popular nightclubs on the east coast. Visit our website and like us on Facebook!
