We had a good time visiting the beach and boardwalk. The beach was very crowded but what do you expect in August! The boardwalk was fun to bicycle on but you have to be off by noon. There are plenty of places to eat with varying quality. If you want a good meal go to town.

There lots of shops, many kinds of food and amusements. For a boardwalk I would say it was very clean. If u go before noon you can ride your bike all the way along the oceanfront.

This boardwalk pretty much had everything you want to eat and shop or look for. My kids loved it. Especially the 1.00 store. Wasn't so long of a boardwalk like Ocean City, MD boardwalk which is too long of a walk. This boardwalk was a verynice size with more things to see and plenty of stores which Ocean City, MD... More

What a family vacation! The kids were so thrilled with everything! The ride prices were a bit pricey but definitely worth it! There were a ton to choose from! And honestly we were a bit apprehensive of going here just by reading some reviews saying this was a dirty boardwalk... But really... This was one of the cleaner boardwalks we... More

The boardwalk area is tailored towards young children and their families, unlike the one I strolled through while in Maryland with the same name. Although I did not get a chance to visit any of the attractions there, each and every one of the places consist of arcades, amusement parks, clothing stores, restaurants, and even a Subway! Even though it... More

Wonderful attractions with many things to do! A lot of mini-golfing places. Recommend the Haunted Mini-Golfing for older children/adults. Many cool shops with a lot to buy! Had a wonderful time on the boardwalk!

There's a very tight market of people that would appreciate this shore point in Jersey. Those that have younger kids/teens or the retired/grand parents of younger folks. There's really no crime here. Which is wonderful. If you like to party, this is not your town. Restaurants are subpar at best. Prices for a beach town are less than you'd expect... More

I love the boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ! It is family friendly and so many great places to eat and shop. It is fun to grab some ice cream and sit on a bench and watch as vacationers stroll by.

The Ocean City Boardwalk is just like most of the Boardwalks that run up and down the east coast. Good family fun. One plus if you have a family, is that the town is "dry", so no drunk young people on the beach or boardwalk. Good attractions, good beach, good running lane!
