The boardwalk is great. It is open pretty late which is great if you like the go on quite stroll. They have great rides open for the kids in two different parks, The boardwalk prohibits drinking which is great because you don't have to worry about your kids. There is also no crime.

It's great to walk the boards. This boardwalk is about 2 1/2 miles long so it is good exercise just to walk it. It has numerous places to eat from snack like funnel cake and french fries to pizza to full course restaurants. There are many shops selling just about everything - clothes, soap, toys, beach gear, jewelry, antiques, etc.... More

Family friendly East coast beach town that has embraced all four seasons, making it a place to visit 365 days a year. Everyone should experience the Atlantic ocean from the boardwalk in winter as well as in summer.....a plus in the winter is the lack of seagulls. Roughly 2.5 miles long, the boards offer an elevated vantage point to view... More

The Ocean City boardwalk is the best at "family friendly! Lots of rides for kids and adults, arcades, food, and does not have a lot of the wheels and games of chance that other boardwalks have that tend to draw groups. And the it is a dry town . . . I think makes the boardwalk much safer.

Went here with my cousins when we were staying in a house in Ventnor City. They were visiting from Norway, and they loved being able to shop and explore. We all went on a ferris wheel at night and the lights were very pretty. Lots of awesome food, beautiful, clean boardwalk, plenty of shops to buy anything you can think... More
