Loved the public park across the way from our hotel, outstanding! We like quieter places that we can go out and get to nightlife if we want but enjoy quieter surroundings. Ocean City is jam packed with hotels, condos, restaurants, etc... It is a terrific choice for any age family as there is a lot for kids like mini golf,... More

Beach is relatively well maintained as new sand is pumped in after every major storm to maintain it.

Best time to visit is before Memorial Day or after Labor day if you wish to... More

Ocean City has continued to maintain a clean and safe beach, boardwalk and city. Traffic is sometimes a snails pace.

This was our family's first trip to Ocean City. We came for the beach and were not disappointed! It has beautiful sand, is crowded yet calm, and very clean. The waves are not too strong and were perfect for our younger children. We all had a great time and can't wait to return.

Ocean City beach is a very nice, free beach. It's not too wide, so the walk from your hotel to the waterline isn't bad. The sand is nice and kept clean, which is probably quite a job considering how many people visit every day. The lifeguards do an excellent job and are very attentive. We are a family of four,...
