The boardwalk was fun when I was a child but I don't think it has ever been updated. The thrashers fries and funnel cakes are good but terrible for you and the stores are all over priced and sell cheap clothes and sweatshirts. The arcades are fun for the kids, but expensive and dirty. Do yourself a favor and go... More

The boardwalk at Ocean City is not family-friendly. It is not nice. There were one too many loud and young drunks. In their inebriated states, they high-fived and conversed with any stranger who crossed their paths. They were higher than the clouds. The shops sold unattractive merchandise. Even the discounted clearances did not draw customers. The smells were smells of... More

But I wish there's more family restaurants than bars and less people smoking on the beach. There are tons of kids there, so maybe kids friendly restaurants than bars? The beach itself is very clean, the stores were ok. Mostly owned by Europeans that don't speak English very well....

I started going to OC when i was a kid with my family. Now i go with my friends to deep sea fish. There is stuff for people of all ages to do. The boardwalk is the center of all this. No doubt in my mind this is a top 5 boardwalk.

There was a small section of the usual boardwalk games, which was very nice. The boardwalk was mostly made up of small shops and restaurants. There were some sidewalk musicians, and other artistic people doing their thing. It was cute. The sand sculptures that are permanent are beautiful. the people are very friendly.

This boardwalk is just what you'd expect - packed with people of all ages and interests. Lots of food vendors and restaurants offering a pretty decent variety of cuisines, from fair food like fried dough to a sit down seafood dinner. If its hot when you're there - grab a cup of "Polish Water" - its a icy treat in... More

Compared to Ocean City, NJ, Wildwood and Seaside boardwalks, it lacked variety. It was, however, way ahead of Atlantic City in almost every respect.

My service dog LOVES to ride the carousel in the place near the inlet. He loves carousels. And the attendant is nice, offering to buy me more tickets if I want them, so I don't have to walk over and do it. I love all the junk shops, and my dog, being all boy, always likes to stop at HOOTERS.... More

My family and my husbands family have been going to Ocean City Maryland since the 1950's. We always love walking the boardwalk. Now we are lucky enough to be staying right on the boardwalk and 8th Street. We have a deck right on the boardwalk. We just love sitting on the deck and watching the people go by. In the... More

The stores and most food places kept popping up every few blocks. Mostly fast food places, very few sit down restaurants and all stores were typical souvenir types, nothing special.
