“Not bad...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012 via mobile

As far as boardwalks go... This one has everything you would expect. Rides are really good at the one end. Boardwalk food and games were typical. It was very crowded on our July Wednesday. I might choose point pleasant instead, just to avoid the crowds.

“Best in NJ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

The OC boardwalk has the typical t-shirt shops, amusement piers and every kind of food imaginable. What sets it apart are some classier shops for those of us who don't need to buy boogie boards and hermit crabs. Check out Terry Ivory (expensive but it's fun to browse), White Palm, Onni's, Mia's, The Old Salt, Henry's,the shops at the Flanders Hotel & Shriver's Fudge. It's a great place to ride your bike in the early morning hours and then stop for breakfast at Brown's on the north end of the boardwalk.

“30 years of enjoyment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

I have been enjoying the Ocean City Boardwalk every year since I was two years old. I love to browse in the shops and always find something fun to take home. The mini golf games are fun, especially the older ones like Goofy Golf and Tea Time Golf. There is a nice selection of boardwalk foods, such as fries, pizza, and ice cream; definitely something for everyone. I love the family atmosphere and always felt safe walking the boards with my friends, even when I was very young.

“Nice for family”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Though Ocean City is nice for family, there was ALOT of smoking and cigarette butts on the boardwalk and on the beach. Public bathrooms are few and VERY far between and no showers...I think it is average. We find Point Pleasant to be better.

“The borards”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We liked walking the boardwalk except when the bikes and surreys were out. Some people on the bikes seemed to be reckless.
