Two venues with rides for young children to teens, and parents too. Lots of shops for beach gear, novelty gifts, variety of food choices, arcades, a movie theater, mini-golf, all with fun in mind. In the morning hours bicycles are permitted to ride the 2/12 mile board walk.

Visited OC NewJersey boardwalk on Aug 19-21. Had a nice time walking in and out of some shops, eating ice cream and feeling the ocean breeze at night. Unfortunately one of our family members was in a wheelchair and therefore had quite a bumpy ride on the boards. Still we had a good time. It is clean and kept in... More

Ocean City is one of the nicest boardwalks in NJ. The boardwalk is 2 1/2 miles long. There are more bikes on the boardwalk in the morning than people walking. We decided to take a walk along the boardwalk on a Sunday morning between 9:30-1:00. It was a beautiful day but expect a lot of bike riders. Bikes are permitted... More

I've been visiting Ocean City for more than 35 years and have traveled extensively along coastal areas in the USA. This boardwalk is still the very best!! The section from 6th St.-14th St. is incredibly wide and the entire length is beautifully cared for. The variety of businesses and attractions on the boardwalk offer something for all ages. Spectacular sunrises... More

We had a great time having lunch and visiting the shops. Was sad that the hours on the rides and games was limited especially since it was June. Sad that it costs money to visit the beach since we only wanted to use it for photo opportunity.

Nice clean beach with plenty of Lifeguards. Boardwalk has plenty of stores and eateries specializing in Jersey Shore Food. Pizza, Burgers, Sausage & Peppers, to name a few. Stores are clean and plenty to see. Plenty of Rides and Attractions for the kids and adults alike. A Gem on the Shore!

The Ocean City Boardwalk reminds me of wonderful childhood memories when we stayed at our grandparents' home in Atlantic City. Unfortunately, things there are very different from what it was. But Ocean City, being a "dry town," encourages the safe, family atmosphere I remember. Amusements, salt water taffy, fudge, pizza and novelty shops line the walk while the clean beach... More
