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.

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
