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.

We were prepared for the cold at the shore, so walking the boards and the beach was already on our agenda. In spite of the gusty winds, the Boardwalk has a beauty all its own...in every season. A slice of pizza at Manco and Manco's, a visit to Shriver's Salt Water Taffy ... and a walk along the beach (with... More

Overall, the best boardwalk on the Jersey shore. Best for families, and on top of it, they don't have the games you waste money on and never win, or win low grade stuffed animals. Town wont allow it. Two sections or piers of rides with rides for all ages. At least a dozen mini golf courses. Water park. Plenty of... More

OC is a great family friendly city to take a vacation. Every summer our grandchildren come to OC. One night we dedicate to the boardwalk. We eat, go on rides, get ice cream and buy a gift. They have family fun nights on the boardwalk. OC has everything for everybody.

The boardwalk is a good experience any time you go. Want to see lots of people go in the summer, want to take a run without worrying about bumping into anyone go in the winter. Some shops open here and there but the ocean is forever just on the other side of the boardwalk and how blessed I feel to... More

The Ocean City Boardwalk is a family friendly place. There are plenty of activities for the kids or grandchildren. It's also a nice place to take a stroll with someone special. Keep an eye out for events during the summer on or along the boardwalk. One of my favorites is the airshow usually held in September.

The Ocean City Boardwalk is one of our favorites! It has everything you could want in a good-old-fashioned boardwalk: rides, activities, golf, water rides, movies, treats, nice shops, and most of all - a safe family focused atmosphere! The only downfall is that there aren't many sit down restaurants, other than some pizzerias. There are plenty of restaurants within a... More
