加州santa cruz的“boardwalk”,当地华人怎么叫?
海濱遊樂園/海濱公園


Explanation:
在台灣有人譯成 "海濱遊樂園" 也有人譯成 "海濱公園"
台灣有些地方仿照那樣的公共設施做了海濱公園或遊樂園
例如淡水河出海口附近的 "八里左岸" 用的就是木板在沙攤上建築 Boardwalk

agree  Michelle Lin Johnson: there're roller coasters, pirate ship, haunted house, etc. So I'd say 海濱遊樂區. // No. I've never been to 八里左岸. I just looked it up and saw some pictures. It looks fun. :)

  -> Thanks, Michelle. The idea with 區 is quite right. By the way, have you experienced 八里左岸? My kids like it very much when they were in Taiwan.

neutral  Michelle Lin Johnson: FYI: 加州海岸行 means "a trip to the California coast". // 足行天下means "travel all over the world (on foot)". The whole sentence in the front is sort of a poetic title.

  -> woah, thank you very much for that, ha ha you are right. 足行天下 (步行?) is referring to the boardwalk??

neutral  jyuan_us: 用加州海岸行这种结构译名称,不符合汉语习惯。 It sounds like an itenery to the coast of California.
22 hrs
  -> Yes, you are right. It is a mistake.
