Love The food, people watching and sun set is beautiful. Traffic is bad during 4 of July. The fire works is great if you are on the board walk. Wish you could drink on the beach.

Cant even tell you how awesome it was that the lifeguard was able to show my kiddos the horseshoe crabs up close.

There were so many things to do, a great beach, stay on the north end off the board walk and it's very quiet, so many places to eat at.

This summer we decided to head south to Ocean City Maryland for our family vacation. We had never been there before, and researched it for some time before we ventured in the 7 hour drive.

It has been ages since my husband and I had gone to the beach! In the '70s, we went quite a few times to Delaware beaches and loved it, but work and raising children got in the way of exploring as a "single couple". NOW, as Empty Nesters, we have returned!

This is our favorite beach. We have visited a few others and this one has the most activities and the boardwalk is right on the beach without having to walk a half mile to get to the water. We always stay at the Lankford hotel right on the boardwalk.

As an european I found the Ocean City Boardwalk, attractions and activities as being very "american " . It is clean and a lot of fun. In the south part are many nightclubs and pubs for young people. North part is more quiet and nice for older people.

A great beach that is cleaned overnight each night in the summer. No worries that the kiids will step on something disgusting or harmful, unless a jellyfish is washed up on the beach.
