Went to OC for the first time with my family. We got free beach tags at the hotel where we were staying. Came to the beach really early to get a good spot. It got crowded after 30 minutes. The sand was nice but too many shells. The water itself was a bit dirty for me. 2 CONDOMS were floating!... More

We loved the reasonable vacation rental we stayed in on Central Ave. It had 6 bedrooms and had a yard and big porch. Great for family reunion. The city is safe.

Wall to wall people on the beach in the boardwalk area. Must have beach tags in season. Only certain areas are allowed for swimming.

We stayed in Ocean City for a week in August. The weather was perfect for the beach. We are a family that rises early so often times we were some of the first ones on the beach. The sand was very clean and soft unlike the beaches in northern New Jersey. It never seemed overly crowded like the more northern... More

Family friendly...kids have a blast at the beaches here. Well maintained and life guards on top of swimmers...fun place to spend the day. They check for beach tags, but you dont mind paying because they keep it clean and safe.

Not the largest beach and lots of areas that you can't swim. It was very crowded. You can rent umbrellas and chairs and boogie boards but get out there early. Nice that there is a boardwalk next to it.
