Ocean city is a dry town so there is little trouble to be found. It is a fun place for the whole family, the amusements, funnel cake, ice cream, pizza etc.

Clean safe and fun, plenty to do and see. Prices are "high" for amusements, but I guess that is expected.

This is by far my most favorite boardwalk in New Jersey. They keep it clean and updated. The variety of shops, restaurants and candy stores are amazing!!!. There is a amusement park, mini golf, food court, wonderful beach (must have beachtag - can purchase right there) Christmas stores etc. A must see and a all day visit is a must

This boardwalk is OK. I am used to going to Wildwood which is way bigger. However, we though we would give this one a try. A little slower than Wildwood but fits well with the beach.

The epitome of summer is strolling along with family/friends and plenty to do, see, and experience (in a safe place); where many happy memories are made... Ocean City boards deliver the dream. Our family home is in WC, but we go north to OC for our yearly fix!

This boardwalk is not like those that I grew up with in Seaside Heights, Point Pleasant and Wildwood in that there are no games of chance that can cause you to empty your wallet before walking even a hundred feet. There are no wheels or balloons or baseball tosses for prizes. Instead, it is made up of primarily stores/shops, mini... More

My husband and I just spent a week in Ocean City with my 2 daughters (ages 9 & 15). We spent some time every day on the Boardwalk. My younger daughter loved the arcade and the rides in both amusement parks. She also played mini golf at 5 different places. She got a hair wrap and my teen got a... More
