“Probably my favorite Boardwalk in NJ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

You may need a beach tag to come to Ocean City Boardwalk but, this boardwalk has the best variety. Little bit of rides, variety of t-shirt and sweatshirts, several fudge and taffy places, non-souvensir type stuff. Little bit for everyone of all ages. You can even rent scooters, wheelchairs, bikes etc.

“Great Family place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We walked along the boards with our three children and it was so pleasant. No games where you spend $75 dollars trying to win a $3 toy! The shops are pleasant and the people are kind and courteous. This is our new shore town!

“Fun and not flashy or trashy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Not too flashy or trashy. Good variety of shops, amusements and eateries. The boardwalk is wide and accommodate bicycles, wheelchairs, strollers, walkers, runners and even surrys. Fun to stroll at night when the bands are playing and During the day the boardwalk is lined with artisans selling paintings, pottery and photographs.

“Great Shops & Entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

The caliber of stores and entertainment on the Ocean City boardwalk compared to other towns in South Jersey is top notch. You can take a leisurely stroll or browse the main gift shops with collectibles, jewelery, clothing or swimwear. (Recommend the South Seas shop at 7th & Boardwalk for swimwear. No bargains but they can fit every size and they have a gigantic selection.), Don't miss Johnson's popcorn and Mack & Manco's pizza which are icons for families for several generations.

“A true family resort--NEVER disappointing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

The Ocean City Boardwalk is never disappointing! It is a true family experience. When we visited on a Thursday night there was free entertainment by a young boy band just past the Music Pier. Many stopped to enjoy this unexpected freebie. Speaking of freebies...it seemed that just about every eatery was offering you a free sample--from freshly made fudge, to Polish Water Ice and hot soft pretzels. Of course you can't resist and you buy a tasty treat but what fun it is to get to that point. There was also a free event, "The Art of Surfing" at the Music Pier.NO loud music blaring, NO loud merchants hawking their wares, NO unruly individuals--just a quiet, enjoyable family experience to share with young and old alike! *BONUS-Clean Public Restrooms!
