While very little was open, it was nice to walk along the boardwalk, look for shells and my kids enjoyed playing in the sand. Sand was VERY clean, as was the board walk. Wish more had been open, find an open bathroom did prove difficult but it was off season.

There are amusement rides, miniature golf. game halls, retail shops, and walk up fast food. Or, you can simply "walk the boards," people watch or look at the ocean and the sights.

Called a Family Resort for a reason. Everyone is kind and pleasant, the boardwalk is always clean, I have never seen trash or safety hazards. Enjoy walking with friends in early morning, what a way to start the day! Love this town!!!

From the beautiful beaches, gorgeous summer sunsets,bike rides on the boardwalk & throughout town this is definetly a great family place. Smell the pizza and french fries on the boardwalk during the summer. Your children will love the amusements and water park. The North and South end beaches are not as crowded as the center of town. The main street... More

In the morning, a fantastic place for a bike ride or job. By mid day, a great place to cool off while having lunch or a snack. And by night, an entertaining buffet of shops, rides and food. Best of all for families, Ocean City is very clean, friendly and safe. I can let my teenage children roam free (I... More

The Ocean City boardwalk is the best. There are no hawkers, it is very clean and well kept, kid friendly with plenty of rides, etc. Just a beautiful place to be without any negative elements.

Clean and lots to do with family. There were amusement rides for all ages. We found a park perfect for my toddler and he loved all the rides. This was a great getaway in September. People ordered pizza and they even delivered to the beach. We will be back!

It gets very crowded but there isn't a boardwalk like it for a family vacation. The beach is wonderful. A clean and nice place to be.

We traveled to the beach in mid-September and the weather was perfect. Most of the shops were open, opening late/closing early, but that wasn't a big deal to us. The boardwalk was empty except for locals and quite enjoyable.
