This beach is so nice. Even on a stormy day it was fun to play in the waves, there are bathrooms, first aid station, and life guards on duty. the sand is soft and easy to dig and mold into castles. the water felt clean as was the sand. umbrellas and chairs are available to rent but they want them...

I have been coming to this boardwalk most of my life and appreciate it more when I visit other boardwalks. Ocean city nj is a both dry town and one where gambling is not permitted. This translates into no bars/alcohol and no games of chance on boardwalk. It means less riffraff and no huckstering for people to throw their money... More

My first trip to the Boardwalk and I loved it. Just enough activities/beach access. In the mornings, it is nice and peaceful.

Finally made it here after living most of my life in Jersey. Been to all the major boardwalks in the state and for families this one is easily the best. OC is a dry town (no alcohol served or sold), so right off the bat that keeps the early 20 age group summer renters away. Nothing wrong with them, there... More

This was our first trip to OCNJ. We did not realize it was a dry town until we got there. There was very little riffraff because of it being a dry town and it was very clean. There were a lot of the same shops, but the boardwalk had everything you need. We had a blast!!

Great food, fun and games. We stopped at Marco and Mancini and had great "beach" pizza? Kids rode some rides, although they seem to be geared towards little ones.

What can I say....Its OC. If you have kids and like to shop, eat and get some walking in, the boards encompasses it all.
