Owner description: With its quaint storefronts, amusement rides and Music Pier, Ocean City is everything you'd expect from the real Jersey shore. This family-friendly town boasts a two-mile boardwalk dotted with amusements, pizza parlors, and seaside stores.

No respect for poor Ocean City NJ. Stuck inbetween Wildwood, the fun capital of the east coast, and Atlantic City, the gambleing capital of the east coast, Ocean City is really a great place. You can ride bikes on the boardwalk every day until noon. Tons of tshirt shops, restaurants and other stores along this huge boardwalk. Even an amusement park on the beach. This is not Wildwood, but that said, you are not missing much if you decide to come here instead of Wildwood. Most would be totally happy. Two major differences that come to mind for me is you have to pay to access this beach (no fee in Wildwood) $5 per day or $10/wk, Also, it will take you forever to walk from the boardwalk to the actual ocean in Wildwood, but it is a lot closer here in OC which is nice. We usually visit all 3 (AC, OC and WW) We will be back again next month!

Well maintained, clean and fun for the whole family. Lots of options for amusement park rides, miniature golf, arcades, food, etc. One of the best things about Ocean City and the boardwalk is that you feel it's a safe place to take the kids.

We've been coming here for years and love that this boardwalk hasn't changed much! Clean and easy for a night time stroll with the family! Some day we'll bring the grand kids here!

Much more family-friendly than the OC down the coast in MD. Just watch out for the French-fry loving seagulls overhead!

I used to live in ocean city so I have stayed away from the boardwalk there for years.

Went back with some friends....it was really nice to see that such a wholesome place still exists....as opposed to atlantic city.

Goes to show that if they just clean the scum out of AC, they don't need the casinos.
