Nice family oriented boardwalk. Very clean and something for everyone. There are a lot of great places to eat. Fries, funnel cake, pizza, custard, etc. A lot of nice stores with everything you need for the beach.

We loved our trip to the Ocean City Boardwalk. I didn't care for the beach too much, very over crowded and not the best beach I've ever been to by a mile. However, the boardwalk was awesome. Lots of shop and amusement for the family. The boardwalk itself is beautiful, the whole area is a great setup. They have lots... More

Family fun is what this is about. Doesn't matter what age you, you're a kid when you're on the Ocean City Boardwalk.

Yes, there are the junky souvenir shops and numerous pizza places, but you will also find some other more interesting shops too. Crowds are well-behaved, but be careful when the bikes are allowed in the mornings. Most aren't respectful of pedestrians.

Perhaps this is a nicer boardwalk, but it is still crowded and the stores are all, I hate to say it, tacky. Almost the only food options are pizza, fudge, funnel cake, etc. It's like a fairgrounds at the beach. Another reviewer mentioned "upscale shops". What??? I don't think so. Again, if you like that kind of thing, you'll like... More

If you are bringing a family to the shore, Ocean City has the boardwalk you want to visit. No alcohol and generally well behaved people. Castaways Cove has plenty of rides for big and small kiddies.

The Ocean City boardwalk is a delight! The boardwalk caters to families and that is very appealing to us. For the younger set, there are two areas of rides. For everyone, there are a large number of mini golf courses to select from, arcades and wonderful shops to wander in and out. Many evenings there is entertainment on the boardwalk.... More

Have been at OC boardwalk my entire life. Great for family vacations. Would love to see a piano bar (dry I know) for another fun place to visit. Possibly it could be a restaurant with the entire family there...then the parents can embarrass the kids with them belting out songs from the 70's and 80's.
