I grew up in Ocean City, and have been spending most of my summers there ever since. Despite all that time though, I have never gotten tired of spending hours on the boardwalk. It is great at any time of day - in the early morning it is calm and peaceful, with runners and cyclists exercising and locals getting their coffee and watching the ocean, during the daytime it is bustling with tourists, locals, and beachgoers, and at night it is once again full of families and other visitors getting ice cream, shopping, or visiting the amusement parks. Even in the winter, when much of the downtown area is deserted, it is nice to go for a bit of a walk on the boardwalk, and there are always a few places open for food. With all the shops, restaurants, and other attractions on the boardwalk (never mind being right on the beach), you could easily spend your entire visit here!

Living so close to the OC Boardwalk I sometimes take it for granted..Then I think how many, many times we go there...Its great obviously for walking, snacking,shopping at the usual tourist stores, amusements etc..... did I mention eating? but one of our favorite things to do is "people watch"..
The Boardwalk attracts folks from most walks of life...singles, families with small children, seniors and everyone in between... Although most folks only associate it with warm weather it's a great place on a winter day (provided it isn't too windy)... Try it when it and the beach and "board" are snow covered..it's awesome....
