    We flew our kites twice this winter, it was a great way to enjoy the ocean when it's cold out. Beautiful place.

    It is 15 min or so drive from downtown Ocean City (on the way to Cape May). It is best to observe nature and enjoy beach or try fishing. You can launch boat (with cost). There are two hike trail if you do not mind tons of mosquitos leading to bigger beach. You can walk around the water from boat launch site (still too many mosquitos), so bring your bug spray, creams. etc.

    Excellent location to observe tern, gulls and ghost crabs. Also saw Black Duck. Do not cross the lines for bird habitat when you walk beach. Nice enjoyable 20-30 min or so walk.

    Was crowded but to be expected plenty to eat and do. Wear comfortable shoes like any other place like this. Family friendly.

    While in Ocean City for a week at The Flanders Hotel, my brother Walter and I shopped several times in stores along Asbury Avenue. My favorite is Ward's Bakery for their excellent cinnamon buns.

    I enjoy stopping by Staintons every time that I am in Ocean City. I always feel that I can get a gift for any occasion here and its not something I will find everywhere else

    I've been going to OCNJ all my life and never stopped in the welcome center. I recently stopped by to purchase beach tags, and had a very welcoming experience. The ladies were so nice and helpful. Love you OCNJ!!!!

    We had a fun time at the Aqua Park.

    Our tweens enjoy it every time we go! Staff is organized and prompt.

    Only constructive criticism would be to extend the session time from 45 to 60 minutes as one session is a little too short but two sessions are too long. Also it would be great to have some beach umbrellas set up on the observation deck for the parents. It gets really, really hot in the direct sun.

    Otherwise lots of fun. Looking forward to coming back next summer!

    This was my third visit to Glazed Over Studio on Asbury Avenue in Ocean City, NJ. Just as my prior visits, they did not disappoint. Overall, a truly outstanding experience.

    a) The studio is warm and welcoming. The studio is well lit and there is plenty of room to get creative. The tables are large and create a comfortable, creative environment.

    b) the workers were very attentive to my needs. They had an excellent selection of colored glazes and wide selection of brushes and materials. The workers were very knowledgeable and approachable. The staff was not pushy or overbearing.

    c) they stock a WIDE variety of different ceramic pieces from which to choose. From simple plates and coffee mugs, to beach /surfboard style items, to elaborate holiday pieces, to cars and trucks, to pieces geared toward young children, Glazed Over Studio had it all, in many price points. I recently painted a mug and an antique "light up" holiday truck. (See photos).

    d) My pieces were ready when promised. They have two on-site kilns and my pieces were beautifully fired and ready when promised.

    e) I never felt rushed. This place was very busy and they did not rush me at all.

    The best Vets in Cape May County Plenty of pets for adoption. Volunteers needed for walking dogs. Stop by and check them out.

    What a great little art shop. A real hidden gem on Ocean City. A bit off of the main drag, but worth seeking out. All original pieces from local English artist Tony Troy. Also a great place to get locally made jewelry pieces. Recently Tony produced a children's book called "Mice and the Moon". Locally it has been a real hit. Definitely worth stopping in to meet Tony and to see what finds he has for sale. His work is fairly renowned in both Ocean City and Savannah areas.

    It’s a bit pricey for what they offer if you are a teen or an adult. There are only a few slides. For little kids, there is a really nice pirate ship with slides and water shooters all over the place. My kids loved this park as young children but as teens, they have outgrown it. The lazy river is pretty nice. If you do pay for the all day pass, make sure you use your mini golf tickets that are included. It is actually a nicer course than Congo Falls. I am giving it a 4 not 5 because of the high cost for what you get combined with the bathrooms being in bad shape. But if my kids were younger, I would return. Overall, I still recommend it for a break from the beach.

    It was good to take a break and learn about the history of Ocean City. Why it is a dry city? The house a Princess once lived in. Where is that mysterious ship in the ocean?

    We visited this place a couple of years and hoped for some off season activity. On a Sunday in January - our timing was not good... Best it is to come back July/August. Last time we were quite impressed with the good service and nice atmosphere. Good selection of available art as well. High quality framing. be back summer.
