The Bashful Banana on the boardwalk is a healthy foods cafe that that has gluten free items and really good "ice cream" made out of frozen bananas. Right next door is the Hula Grill, our favorite OC seafood place-very casual with outside tables (they also have grilled chicken and rice if the kids are not seafood eaters) It's not hard to find a good cup of coffee in OC, even on the boardwalk. My kids are teenagers, so we're in a different age bracket activity wise, but of the 2 amusement parks, Gillians Wonderland is geared more towards younger kids. There's also a Pirate themed Cruise that friends with younger children have enjoyed. Any other questions, feel free to ask. We go to OC every summer.

Any help with over night parking? Our rental has only one spot. Also, what is the best place to eat raw bar?

Best bet that we have found for a raw bar close to OCNJ is: zagat.com/r/smittys-clam-bar-somers-point… It is just across the 9th street bridge, hard right to Bay Ave, maybe 100 yards on right.

If the extra car is not going to be used too often, best bet is get back from the beach and park on the street. We are in the 1400 block of Ocean Ave and have always been able to find parking within three or four blocks of the apartment.

Good luck and enjoy your trip!

You don't say where you are staying, but many folks head into OC daily for the beach and also for nights on the boardwalk. Often times you will find some available parking early in the morning right near your rental. Also lots of great places to eat just across the bridge in Somers Point. Charlie's, Crap Trap, Anchorage, and others. Also a KMart, Acme and great Shoprite grocery. Our favorite ice cream is Custard Hut on Rt 9.
