“Great Boardwalk!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Absolute great family atmoshpere! Nothing at all like the Jersey Shore TV show, which was filmed I believe in North Jersey. This boardwalk is in South Jersey, and just a great place to take children! Actually poeple of all ages enjoy the atmosphere, because there's something for everyone! Beautiful city, friendly people, and pretty quiet at night!

“Sweet Boardwalk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

Plenty of shopping and even more good eating await you on this charming boardwalk. Historic Music Pier has shows many nights. Always a nice atmosphere, no games, excellent place to relax and enjoy the beach views and people watching.

“Fun!”

Ocean City has everything from restaurants to arcades and rides. There is mini golf, Chickies and Pete's Crab Fries, Polish water ice, and much more to look forward to! Very busy in the summer though

“Great, even in the off-season”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

I remember a great many trips to Ocean City as a youngster and teenager growing up in southern New Jersey. I now live in upstate NY, and my husband and I decided to use Ocean City as a springboard for visiting friends and family before an extended trip to Europe this winter.

What a lovely, homey town! Just enough stores and eateries to keep one happily fed, and a lovely, long boardwalk great for walks any time of day. Our travel was between Christmas and New Year's, and we were surprised and pleased to see that there is both an extensive First Night and First Day celebration here as well. Ocean City at Christmastime...who'd have thought it?

“Nice family boardwalk”

Always go to the OC boardwalk every summer. I am a local and enjoy the OC boardwalk the most of any along southern NJ coast.
