We stayed on the boardwalk for our trip and it was nice, but nothing spectacular. Pretty clean, okay stores, the usual boardwalk-type t-shirt shops and arcades. It's a little older and could use some updates. It was nice for our family as it was quiet and didn't get crazy at night or anything. Ocean City, NJ is still my favorite boardwalk but I would not hesitate to visit here again. We loved Grotto Pizza on the boardwalk!
