Where to land

What areas are the most family friendly in OC? We've been to MB where North Myrtle and a few other places outside of the "main" MB area is considered family friendly with peaceful oceanfronts and less congestion. Anything comparable in OC?

9 miles of coast, 3 miles of board walk, it does not matter. bay or ocean is your biggest choice and or number of bedrooms. That will tell all. bus runs all 9 miles 24/7. $3.00 a day. Come and enjoy.

Ocean City prides itself on being family friendly throughout. That being said, there is a different vibe that gradually develops the farther North you head (say, 60th street and up) Growing up, my father always called the lower numbered streets, the "honky tonk" section! Still all fun. Nice condos are more prevalent than hotels on the Northern end.

Northern Ocean City is well known for being more of the laid back, and better choice for families with young kids although don't let that deter you from staying anywhere in the city. All of OC is known for being family friendly, there just tends to be a bit more of a congestion of people down towards the boardwalk. You'll be fine wherever though.

I prefer the Northern end of the island. It's quieter because there aren't really any beach attractions there - just restaurants, bars, supermarkets, stores, etc. No amusement parks or arcades or anything (if there are, I missed them). The beaches aren't as crowded up there either.

Our normal place is 77th St. Quiet, no high rises, lots of good restaurants around, and a quiet beach. But our second choice would be far North OC above 130th St. for the same reasons.
