Not the clearest water, but the ocean sounds and tanning are very relaxing with a good book of course!

This is our fourth consecutive year of staying on the boardwalk. It is great family fun. There are endless restaurants, a clean beach, a great boardwalk, and nice hotels. We rent a condo at @nd and Somerset on the boardwalk and it is the best. This is the best vacation spot we have found in the PA/MD area

Avoid the areas around the high rises during the peak season - the beaches are packed and traffic is horrible. Getting a table for dinner in that area or even getting delivery during the peak season is also bad. The boardwalk is "entertaining", but it gets progressively less kid friendly as the sun sets.

January 17, 2015 visit. Great time to come here. Most everything is closed and no crowds with screaming kids. No parking fees or any issues getting a spot. This is the time to walk the beach! Very clean and quiet.

I've always loved the OC Beach and still to this day, I think it is one of the nicest, cleanest beaches around on the east coast.

The beach seems to have no end, and it continues -sort of- onto Assateague Island, which to us is the main attraction of Ocean City. Due to the cold weather the beach was semi-deserted, but the crowds started coming as the weather improved. Extremely nice experience for land-locked people like us.

The beach is great no matter what time of the year it is. Love walking the beach all year long, I get to stretch my legs, the kids like to walk and play in the sand and get a bit wet even if it is too cold to swim. I always feel relaxed and refreshed after we walk the beach.... More

This is the best Boardwalk I have been to. I was here in the off season so I can't speak for the summer crowd. It was nice without all the people, but I've read that there is tons to do year round. I am moving near here within the month so I plan to take advantage of all the free... More
