Typical boardwalk with a few rides. LOVED the antique merry-go round. Wildwood rides are more, but if you're in the area, do drop by. Be sure to try the hot donuts!

Had 2 great beach days. The beach is fairly clean. Enjoyed walking the boardwalk. Wish it was more affordable to stay in ocean city.

I don't know why I don't see OC in major top 10 lists for Best Beaches in the US... it has a wonderful boardwalk... amazingly wide sandy beaches... and a very happening Bayside.. and did I mention no fees. But inspite of that..it attracts HUGE crowds because of its location. Infact this year in 2014, I found it was way... More

OC MD has to be one of the cleanest public beaches I have been on. Beach is easily accessible from numerous places and every street.

Beach is very clean. The ocean was very cold but beautiful. The boardwalk is fun and also very clean. Many restaurants and rides for kids.

This beach was clean and beautiful. I'd say it's on par with Daytona Beach Florida, minus the palm trees. It was crowded but I'd come back and go to a part of the beach that was much further down the boardwalk, near the condos not the rides. The beach area very near the rides seems to attract seedy people.

I've been coming to Ocean City since I was 8 years old. There is just something about the place. It is like coming home. Tons to do, although, it's getting to be overpriced.

The beach in O.C. is very cleaned and well maintained. You can rent umbrellas and chairs. We had not kids near us and no loud people. It was a great day out!

As a faithful Bethany Beach girl...I was hesitant when my son asked if we could stay at Ocean City this year. I was worried as I didn't think I would like it as much as I like the quietness of Bethany. I was wrong. I loved the beach and there was plenty to do. Will go back again next year!

The drive is just under 3 hours from my house, so my family goes to OCMD regularly. We have only done day trips for the past few years, but we are planning to stay for a few days soon. The beach gets busy during peak season, but that's expected with a free public beach. I park for $20 in a... More
