This weekend the Boardwalk complex celebrates it’s 14th birthday. The Boardwalk started out as a casino and entertainment complex and now also features a 5 star hotel, international convention centre and a spa. When the Boardwalk was built a fair amount of eyebrows lifted and people gave it 18 months before nobody would go there and the shops would close. On the contrary, it has become a Port Elizabeth landmark, standing central to most activities and events hosted on the beachfront. Somewhere most visitors to the city end up either for a meal, a show, viewing the musical fountain spectacular on the lake or just for a stroll around. Best of all, its where my office is which means I can experience it and our beautiful beachfront every single day.
