Boardwalk undergoing a makeover and it's looking gorgeous. Super clean and some stores were open even though it was a February weekend, nice surprise. Always love how clean everything is. Free parking on Monday in the municipal lots was a perk.

The Ocean City boardwalk is newly rebuilt with new boards. With a spectacular view of the ocean and beach, one can wander along on foot or ride your bike, or during the summer even rent a surrey to propel. With many benches along the 2 1/2 mile stretch, nearly 100 shops, rides and restaurants along the way, there is something... More

I grew up in Ocean City, the white sand is soft and the beaches are large! Great boardwalk to take a break from the water and sun, get some pizza, an ice cream cone, or ride some rides at their amusement parks. I MISS this place.

Some of my fondest memories were at this beach. 22nd and Central. Even though it was many years ago I remember it like it was this past summer. I remember great family and food. Crabbing, boating, Tanning or in my case burning and laughing. Wow! thanks for all the great memories, great fondness.

The boardwalk is family friendly, safe and clean. We went in the off season, so it was extremely quite. Spectacular beach with lovely clean sand. No alcohol allowed in OC so there were no bars and no associated unruly behaviour. There are lots of shops, food shops, restaurants, rides, amusements, even a miniature golf course! Is a great vacation place... More

Have been coming to Ocean City every year for the past 9 years. My kids do not want to go anywhere else. They are 11 and 12 now and when I asked them if they would rather go to Europe this summer they both said they would rather go back to Ocean City. Great family fun.

Never took advantage of the boardwalk. Rediscovered it several years ago and now return to enjoy it every June
