A great attraction for the entire family. When we stay in Ocean City for the week, we usually hit the boardwalk twice in the evening. This year we went as a family each day for a bike ride every morning. We just love the Ocean City Boardwalk!

Glad to see not much has changed in 40 years. Lots of places to eat, many of the same from way back when; you can still ride your bike before noon on the boardwalk and everyone still walks the boards at nite. Nice to see some things don't change.

Our family LOVES coming to Ocean City. The boardwalk is a big draw. Our hotel is located at 11th and Ocean so we are on the boardwalk every day. It's filled with many touristy shops, some great coffee places (Ocean City Coffee Co), great boutiques (Barefoot Trading Company) and many eateries. You can find a shop for every one of... More

The best boardwalk in the area. Try to go during the day or mid week when it is less crowded. Wonderful rides for the kids. Nice touristy shopping. Fun fast food. Try Kohr Brothers soft serve and Johnsons Popcorn. Yum.

Took an opportunity to get out of Philly early & head to Ocean City, NJ to visit our daughter & family for a couple hours. Started with cocktails on the deck overlooking the beach, dinner then headed to the boardwalk with the kids. Easy close parking to the boards and not packed with crowds since schools have started back. Great... More

This is an original iconic piece of history not to be missed. From the walk or tram you see and visit favorite eats, home of salt water taffy, carnival rides and people watching.

I love the Ocean City boardwalk. It is so family oriented. Clean and fun with lots to do- beaches, rides, movies, shops, eateries, mini-golf etc.. Make sure you stop at Johnson's Popcorn for the hot caramel corn and bring a bucket home
