Parking can be a real hassle but that will be a problem at any good beach location. food highlights: Mack n Manco Pizza... More

Great family focused boardwalk with something for everyone from the toddler to the grandpa. Ride bikes on the boardwalk in the morning and stop for breakfast and homemade doughnuts.

Loved the whole experience. The rides, the boardwalk food, except for the overpriced pizza!, the smell of the ocean. Perfection.

Love the shops, restaurants and rides. Also, I love the way they label the boardwalk so that bikers, walker and runners know where to be so that everyone is safe. The flower pottings are beautiful this year. This boardwalk has always felt safe and family oriented.

You can't beat OC, NJ for a nice family vacation. With it being a dry town you only get responsible adults with kids coming here.

We all loved renting bikes every morning and riding the boards and everything was very clean. If mini golf is your thing, there are tons of options!

What a wonderful place to spend a summer evening! Walking the boardwalk, checking out the great shops and stopping for a sausage sandwich and ice cream along the way. Everybody is out there, mom, dad, grandparents and kids. We had a great time!

Our family has been to OC many times and this is a very honest review. Ocean City is clean and great for families. We came here for years when our son was younger and actually he got bored and so did we. The hotels are over priced and if you have kids a B & B is not the best... More
