“Family Fun”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

My family had never been to a boardwalk before, and we highly enjoyed the OC Boardwalk. There was a variety of cute stores with souvenirs, salt water taffy, and more fried food than you ever could imagine. We stopped for lunch at the Hula Grill, which was delicious, and later had a snack of funnel cake. Make sure to stop in the dollar store- they offer $1 drinks, which is a steal on the boardwalk. After walking awhile, it seemed like every store repeated itself, but was definitely fun for a few hours.

“A great place to stroll, eat and play.”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Ocean City New Jersey's boardwalk is two and a half miles long with a ten block shopping and restaurant district, two modest amusement piers and a water park. The boardwalk is also the miniature golf capital of the east coast. I have enjoyed this special attraction for many years. Other resorts my have more rides and other kinds of attractions, but the environment and ambiance is friendlier in O.C.

“After you walk it once, that's it.”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Not a lot to keep the interest going. Many miniature golf games, but that would wear thin after a few days. Nice looking no-alcohol restaurants in town & on the boardwalk. We'd prefer to bring our own wine for dinner, but without that option we went elsewhere.
