the boardwalk is definitely the seediest part of town. It is fun for the kids. I'm sure it is also fun for the heavy drinkers. However in season it gets very crowded and it is a collection of one tourist trap after another. I hit it once a season but it is not a favorite in my book. I would... More

There are stores and activities for families with varying ages, and there are also fun places for groups of college students. We enjoyed some of the rides and fit 10+ people in an old time photo before stopping by Dumser's for some delicious ice cream.

We are a family of 5 and wanted to have fun during an early Spring Break week. We found that most rides weren't open yet, but the arcades were. There are MANY team-oriented, family games to play. We really enjoyed the skeeball and horse racing. My daughters liked the dance game and my son, the shooting games. I enjoyed the... More

In the early morning, you can rent & ride numerous styles of bikes. The Boardwalk goes from the inlet to 27th St, which is approximately 3 miles (35 blocks). For those... More

The boardwalk is quite extensive and was really busy despite it being a slightly busy pre-season day. You can find several of the stores at various spots along the boardwalk so if you miss it on one block you are more than likely to find it 2 blocks later. There was quite a long line for French fries @ Thrashers... More

A really great boardwalk full of all kinds of fun stuff and shopping.. I do recomend if you want to do an old time photo go to the one in the middle of the boardwalk although it was a bit crowded they still took there time with us so our pictures turned out great.

OC Md. has an excellent boardwalk. We were fortunate enough to stay in a hotel on the boardwalk where the beach is very wide with a variety of shops and eateries. Although many establishment were close in January, the sea air, scenery, beach were worth the trip. This is the real attraction of Ocean City. We will return.

A great place to stroll with your family while the sandy beaches and Atlantic Ocean off to one side and a variety of shops and restaurants on the other. There are rides and games as well. You are sure to find something to catch the eye of your entire family.

It's always fun to show up at the OC Boardwalk and get those Thrashers Fries and a tub of Fisher's Popcorn. Even in February.

So many fun things to do. Can't beat the boardwalk food and sights. The arcades kept the kids occupied while my husband and I did a little shopping.
