“Sweet but typical ....”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

If you love a boardwalk experience, this will be a nice one for you. Lots of space and clean environment that Grady was flowers and lots of lanes of traffic for bikers runners and walkers. Lovely beach and lots of tacky tourist shops to complete the feel. This boardwalk is nicer for its lack of bars and trashy stores along the retail strip. Fewer nasty characters survive in Ocean City New Jersey, so this boardwalk is more of a delight for that reason. Police presence is felt everywhere. Great for kids and teens. No bars anywhere as it is a dry town. No problem! Bring your own to the condo, and leave it there.

“June on the Boardwalk”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Very crowded for a nice weekend in early June. Sharp eyes needed before 12 noon because of bicycles, kind of hectic and cross over to beach may necessitate a wait.

“not much open”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Boardwalk is nice but I was disappointed that the week leading up to memorial day weekend a lot of stores were not open and the ones that were closed very early.

“All fun and no Stress”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Haven't gone yet this year but Ocean City boardwalk is so much fun. We take our six grandchildren every summer to Cast Away Cove to go on the rides. Have to get Johnson's, Carmel Popcorn, Knorrs custard and shop in the clothes stores and book store. Sometimes we get Pizza at Mack and Manco. It's a real family spot. We all enjoy it every year.

“Plenty to eat and do!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I've been to Wildwood with my family for our yearly Memorial Day vacations down the shore, this was my first time in Ocean City and I would say my family and I loved it, there plenty of places to eat, and stores to shop. My son and husband loved the Go Karts which race underneath the boardwalk. Looking forward to next year's trip down the shore.
