“Ocean City NJ with nice family friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Due to multiple visits to Ocean City I developed a kind of sentiment to the place. Objectively the beach is nice like most of the Jersey shore including the South Jersey beaches. It is backed up by small dunes in places and by the relaxing boardwalk with many stores and attractions. You can count on amusement parks and mini golf places. Many restaurants, ice cream and salt water taffy stores. There is a fee daily or seasonal for the use of the beach unfortunately. Ocean City is traditionally family oriented. You will likely enjoy the OC beach!

“Beautiful beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you want a traditional Jersey shore beach, go to Ocean City. You can take a break, and get something to eat on the boardwalk, or play mini-golf.

“Good time of year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Going in October the weather is great, very quiet, it's a good time of year (if your into photography) to get a great deal of off season photographs

“Clean and safe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

This is a nice beach with a lot of nice people just relaxing. Mostly families travel here and the crowd is not rowdy like you would find in Wildwood.

“Best Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Best beach around...'nuff said! Love that they have allowed the dunes and grasses to help with erosion. Wish more people would pick up there own trash tho, which is what I spend my time doing on my twice daily walks!
