There is something for everyone. Its always best to arrive late afternoon, early evening. You can come for dinner or snacks because there is food of every type. Benches are scattered for watching the ocean or people watching. Beware if you are on a diet, the air is filled with the smell of carmel corn, pizza and french fries.

Always love the Ocean City Boardwalk! Good food at the Hula Grill and consistently a great slice of pizza at Manco and Manco's . We visited on this evening in June to see the Miss New Jersey Pageant at the Music Pier near 8th Street.

Ocean City has the best boardwalk on the Jersey Shore, with lots to do and a wide boardwalk with lots of available benches to rest on. Great for kids, couples and seniors

Great boardwalk. One mile of a nice mix of businesses, with the ocean always in view to the east. Just watch out for the bicycles in the morning!

We come here every year during our week long stay in neighboring Sea Isle City. This boardwalk is a whole lot more kid friendly than Wildwood. Definitely recommend a visit!

We have been going to different beaches along the Jersey coast all my life and Ocean City is one of our favorites. The beach is close and the boardwalk has great shops.

The OCNJ boardwalk is great for early morning exercise. Because it is wide, and has well marked lanes for bikes, trams and walkers you don't have to worry to much about getting run over. Later in the afternoon it does get bus, and it doesn't have as many rides/games as other places but that is what I like about it.... More

If eateries galore, shops for a variety of interests, the Music Pier, a dollar store, and adequate public bathrooms aren't enough to satisfy you, notice that this is a boardwalk free of the vices of booze and gambling. It doesn't get any better than this!

My husband and I are not beach people but we enjoyed watching the beach goers having fun in the sand. This is a great boardwalk, we were really impressed. Nice and clean with tons of shops.
