We LOVE everything about Ocean City Boardwalk. We have been going there for the past 8 Septembers, and always enjoy our time, whatever the weather. We always spend the week beginning with Labor Day at the beach. The weekend after Labor Day is the Street Rod fair, and on Saturday, between 12 and 4, the cars are on the Boardwalk.... More

I've been going to the Ocean City Boardwalk for about 40 years...and it never gets old. The best part is that it is family friendly. There are special family nights with live bands and entertainment for the kids. Good variety of stores and 2 great amusement piers. (castaway cove is our favorite) All the stores go from 6th st to...

Of all the boardwalks I've been to the one in Ocean City is, by far, my favorite. There is just so much to see and do and it stretches for miles! It also helps that Ocean City is a dry town so you don't have a bunch of drunks being obnoxious all around you (unlike Atlantic city). If you're looking... More

What a difference from most of the New Jersey beach boardwalks. A totally different atmosphere. Very clean! Very family friendly.

We just returned from a family vacation in Ocean City. The boardwalk was fun, and the kids really enjoyed it. We were lucky enough to see the Ocean City airshow ; it was great. Definitely worthwhile for all ages.

Go here every year at least once during my visit to OC. It's just fun to walk, go in and out of some cheesy stores, play mini golf and maybe go to the carnival rides. It's good clean fun. Oh yeah, lots and lots of junk food possibilities. It's a change of pace and something to do.

We love to people watch and eat our way from one end to the other. This is the best board walk ever for doing both. Wish the police would stop the smokers though.

We sure enjoyed our evening strolls "on the boards" during a several-day visit after Labor Day. Not too many people (so much better than in prime season!), still lots of lights and amusing things to see and do.We enjoyed playing mini-golf and ski-ball, and wandering in and out of lots of shops. Bought ice cream and other snacks. People watching... More

It's STILL SUMMER people ! The water park is nice at Plymouth ave & Boardwalk (ocwaterpark.com) and nice view from on top of the... More

Loved the food, people watching and shops on the boardwalk. Very expensive and bring CASH!!!!!!!!! Most places take cash only. There are ATM machines in restaurants, stores, theatres etc. or at least in the area of the businesses. Not convenient but doable.
