Spent a wonderful weekend here with my boyfriend! There is plenty to do and lots of different places to shop and eat. We stayed at the Anchor Inn, two blocks from the Boardwalk and it was lovely.

Fantastic time with toddlers. They loved the beach and had fun at night on the boardwalk. Highly recommend for young families! Water a bit rough but didn't matter to us as they were not going in deep. Sand was very clean. In fact, the entire boardwalk was very clean. It's a dry town so no drunks and crazy teenagers/adults.

Having been to Atlantic City it was good to head down to Ocean City and get a feel for a very different boardwalk. We were here in October so it was pretty quiet but I can imagine it really comes alive in the summer months. Very family friendly with list of amusements and miniature golf but all really nicely kept... More

I love the OC Boardwalk. It is so charming and nostalgic but with all the new trends and fun! It is also maintained very well. It is clean and safe.

I was so pleasantly suprised with ocean city. I walked on the boardwalk on Sunday morning and there were all sorts of people out, riding bikes, walking, jogging etc. Easy acces to the beach at regular intervals off the boardwalk. Everyone was so friendly. It was just a great experience!

There are many stores, the walk is pretty long but nice, especially during sunset. There are also all sorts of terraces and places to eat something on the way.

Perfect Family destination! The beach is great; the boardwalk has everything one could hope for. We lucked out and were there during an art exhibition. The kids never complained once - the whole 4 days we were there. There is soooo much to do; to eat; to play. The OC Boardwalk has been a favourite since I was a kid!
