Took my best bud here for some Raw bar food. OMG Awsome Seafood we chowed on Fresh Oysters and Cherrystones. I was in Heaven for this type of quality Raw bar food is hard to come by.

This was the most crowded beach I have ever visited! The shops, carnival rides, pier and restaurants were constantly busy. Lots of choices...lots of people EVERYWHERE! We visited several beaches on our trip and was glad to find a sandy shore for the kids to play instead of a rocky coastline (pretty to see, but no fun for play). You... More

Relaxing! Nice walk on the beach, close to the Pier! Great snack shack on the beach. Not crowded at all. Kids love to play in the sand.

Fun, nice, clean. We parked at jimmys paid $25 - So worth every penny - you park right on the edge of the beach and you get a bathroom and changing room facility pass pick your beach spot and enjoy. Yes there are a lot of people but not so many that you feel overcrowded. We left our chairs, coolers,... More

We stayed at a friend's condo acrooss from beach in late July '14. You want to people watch? Walk the sand at low tide? Build a giant sand castle? This is the beach for that! Ate lobster almost every day...yummy!

What an extremely picturesque town. I went with family to visit family. Visiting locals is a nice way to go because they are able to show you the less touristy things. There is an absolutely beautiful park right at the train stop. There were nice little shops and places to eat. The beach and the pier were so very crowded... More

The beach was beautiful, lovely white sand. We arrived just after 10:00 and there was no way to get a spot to sit close to the water (unless maybe you walk way far down the beach. We sat very close to the pier and were quite a distance from the water, but it was fine. The water was awesome. I... More

Home away from home at OOB. I can always find a book, board game, puzzle or movie at a GREAT price. Super friendly laid back atmosphere. Wish I lived next door.
