“Beautiful Ocean Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

We visit Ocean City almost every year at Thanksgiving Time. We always make one or more trips to the board walk. You never know how its going to be...This year it was very, very cold. We have been in T-Shirts and light jackets on some of our visits in the past years. One thing thats good depending on how you look at it; is that the boardwalk is way less crowded and its easy to walk without getting shoved and hurried along by the crowd. The shops on the boardwalk at this time of year are open sporadically. Some have signs on them that say they'll be open over the Holiday weekend but no one shows up. This year to our surprise a yogurt shop was open and the temps were in the 30's. The stores that are open have deeply discounted mechandise and the bargains are great! Usually the pizza shop is always open, along with the candy stores and a coffee shop. Also Johnsons Popcorn which is quite famous for its carmel corn is usually open every time we visit...try the popcorn...its very good! The beach is clear, clean and nice to walk on if you can tolerate the sea breeze. Its always worth checking out if your visiting the area. Parking is free at this time of year and plentiful. In the summer you pay a hefty parking fee and very hard to find any parking near the beach. Walking is flat, you can push a stroller, wheelchair, and there are plenty of benches situated along the boardwalk if you need to stop and rest for awhile.

“Best Boardwalk, Beach and Town in New Jersey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Ocean City is, in my opinion, the best beach in New Jersey. Clean, fun, and family oriented. The boardwalk is fun for the whole family! Make sure you take advantage of one of the great (free) nightly concerts! There plenty of fun for kids of all ages and plenty of shops and restaurants (you have to have Pizza at Manco & Manco). Mini golf with the kids is always fun! You will not be disappointed with all of the attractions here. Whether you're here to simply spend the day, a weekend or a week there is plenty to choose from. With plenty hotels in walking distance, you are never too far from the Beach, fun, movies, mini golf, amusment parks and great shopping!

“Great family place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

The boardwalk is a great place to visit, especially in the summer when things are in full swing. There are many eateries, shops, candy stores, specialty stores and mini golf & rides. By far the best boardwalk I've ever been to.
