Perfect Family destination! The beach is great; the boardwalk has everything one could hope for. We lucked out and were there during an art exhibition. The kids never complained once - the whole 4 days we were there. There is soooo much to do; to eat; to play. The OC Boardwalk has been a favourite since I was a kid!

Absolutely gorgeous it was. Loved taking the whole family of 8 kids (ages 2-18) along the boardwalk, and they all loved it too. Food, shops, attractions, what's not to like..,.

Clean, well kept, no dogs or alcohol. Lined with vendors on one end and rental homes on the other. Dunes are very well maintained.

We walked most of the boardwalk and it was enjoyable. Since it's off season most of the business's were closed for the season or open during the weekend. The boardwalk is wide and there is lanes marked for pedestrians, bikes, runners and such. I can see how this can help during the high season. No dogs are allowed and again... More

We loved the boardwalk as well. Great shops for window shopping.. We didn't walk the entire length of the boardwalk only because the kids grew tired. We will definitely be returning.

The boardwalk here is wide, long, and has PLENTY of shops and restaurants - all right along the beautiful beach! It's a very family-oriented place.

The boardwalk was very clean. Food was as expected, boardwalk food. Went in Oct. on a sunny warm day and it was not too crowed.

Many places still open the end of September for family fun, food and shopping. Not crowded which was very nice.

I carry memories from when I was a young child and my parents would take me on vacation to Ocean City, NJ. Now as a young parent myself, I could not wait to take my two young kids to the OCNJ boardwalk. There are all sorts of activities for the young and young at heart. Amusement piers. Mini golf. Some...
