ocean city vacation this summer

Hi we are coming to Ocean City this summer and were checking out an area around Atlantic and 6th. We have 5 young grandchildren that love to play outside. Is this a heavy traffic area or is more residential? Also there is a 5&10 store that they love to go to, the name escapes me now, it is in the heart of town. Do you know how close we will be to shops? Can someone give me a little description of this area? Thank you so very much

Here's a map. Read the brief directions in order to navigate around the island. You'll be located near the fishing jetty which the kids may find interesting. Many of the larger stores are on Asbury. Is it Hoy's that you are thinking about?

6th and Atlantic is by the High School, the High School's Parking field. Hoys is on Asbury between 7 and 8 street so you are a couple of blocks away. When you walk down to the boardwalk, 6th street is on the north side of Gillian's Wonderland amusements and the begining of the commercial part of the boardwalk.

We have a condo on 6th St which is right in your area, and we love the location. The high school is on 6th St so that keeps traffic down because there is a whole side where there are no condos and school is not in session. And you can use the high school fields for play areas and also the basketball and tennis courts. It is a quick walk to the boardwalk, and the shops start at 6th St. It is also an easy walk to the downtown district on Asbury, and there is a Farmer's Market on 6th St, too. Enjoy your vacation!
