I have gone to the Ocean City Boardwalk all my life. There is always something new every year. The rides are great for kids of all ages, there are lots of family activities, including miniature golf, movies, arcades and rides. Also lots of great food. It's like going to a state fair without the animals. It's also fun to ride... More

I love this boardwalk. So much to do whether you are 4 or 43. I especially like the way they have the boards separated by what you are doing. Surreys use this lane, bikers use this one and pedestrians use this one. I also appreciate the police presence to keep the kids in line.

The OCNJ boardwalk is one of the best, and certainly the best for families. There are plenty of pizza joints and lots of arcades and rides for the kids. It is clean and well taken care of. Its certainly worth a visit with the family or even for couples. Plenty of things to see. Ride a bike on the boardwalk... More

OCMD has a great boardwalk with lots of great places to eat or snack. Lots of shops. Rides and games for the younger ones. Very enjoyable for the family, friends, or couples.

My wife and I visited Ocean City, MD the first weekend of May. We stayed mid-boardwalk and walked the entire boardwalk twice during our 3 day stay. Lots of shops, great restaurants and plenty of sand and sun. Highly recommended.

This was our first trip to the Ocean City boardwalk and we were pleasantly surprised. It was nicer than Wildwood and seemed more family oriented. It's worlds apart from the freak show that Seaside has become. We normally go to Point Pleasant, but if we lived closer, I think Ocean City would have them beat also.

This boardwalk is more for older people and young kids. There's a good bit of rides for young kids. There's a lot of shops for older adults. There's not really much for teens and young adults. There's a few rides and arcades, but nothing really to do.. There's okay restaurants and it's lined with food. More and more tacky t-shirt... More

For those who remember the Ocean City boardwalk of the past when it was full of nice shops, restaurants, almost no T shirt/junk shops and games of chance not every few feet, today's boardwalk holds no appeal. It reminds me of a cheap town carnival. On our recent 4 day visit, we only strolled the boardwalk one night and even... More

Being a Jersey native, going to the Ocean City boardwalk is a classic. It really never gets old. I have been coming to Ocean City since I was a baby, and will pass that tradition on to my kids. Lots of fun shops, always clean, safe, and beautiful views.

The Shirt Shack had great deals and selections on T-shirts, long sleeve t-shirts, sweat shirts, etc. Pizza is always great on the Boardwalk and so is the Funnel Cake.
