Depends where on the boardwalk you are staying. The lighthouse is at the far end near Resorts casino. If you are on the other end of the boardwalk near the Chelsea it is quite far walk but it is doable. They also have the team on the boardwalk its 2.50 per ride of 5 all day. It runs up An down the bird walk and you can get off wherever you want.
