The Ocean City Boardwalk is a family friendly place. There are plenty of activities for the kids or grandchildren. It's also a nice place to take a stroll with someone special. Keep an eye out for events during the summer on or along the boardwalk. One of my favorites is the airshow usually held in September.

The Ocean City Boardwalk is one of our favorites! It has everything you could want in a good-old-fashioned boardwalk: rides, activities, golf, water rides, movies, treats, nice shops, and most of all - a safe family focused atmosphere! The only downfall is that there aren't many sit down restaurants, other than some pizzerias. There are plenty of restaurants within a... More

Enjoyed the Ocean City Boardwalk even if it was the last day of the year. Some merchants were open and enjoyed shopping in the shops. Bathrooms were clean and easily accessible. Walked on the beach and found a few shells. Cold crisp day but enjoyed the day.

This is a dry town and a nice family oriented boardwalk. It is clean, family friendly, with lots of boardwalk food to keep you happy as well as Shrivers who still makes their taffy on the premises. Also, no smoking...YES!!!

Best place to take your family. Peaceful, quiet, and seafood was so fresh!! I did not know it was a dry town until I ordered a beer at the restaurant, but I thought to myself that it was much better that way for the family's safety.

Spent a wonderful weekend here with my boyfriend! There is plenty to do and lots of different places to shop and eat. We stayed at the Anchor Inn, two blocks from the Boardwalk and it was lovely. Depending on where you go, it can get expensive, but it's easy to find affordable things to do. Be sure to shop around... More
