All day at the beach, the evening at the boardwalk. A beautiful family vacation. Lots to do for young and old. Ocean City NJ is very family orientated. Lots of rides for kids, and entertainment and shopping for the adults. This was our third time visiting OC for a week each time. Value is also great!

We had the opportunity to visit Ocean City, NJ in August, 2013, where we have been periodically visiting for many years and, as always, it is just the same in terms of a family friendly town and activity. The new bridge which leads into Ocean City took a few years, but was worth the wait! It has a pedestrian/bike path, Welcome Center with parking and is a great way to enter the city and get an overview of the area, along with good information and helpful tips from the staff at the visitor center. The Boardwalk is always our favorite destination and we love that our "old favorites" are still there (we love to eat at Del's for their Philly chicken cheese steaks and birch beer; sample the Johnson's caramel corn; get some salt water taffy or cream mints at Shriver's; have a soft serve cone at Kohr Brother's; shop in all the little stores; and if we had kids now, we would visit the various amusement rides, games, miniature golf, etc, etc!) Ocean City is still a dry town and it is a pleasure to walk the boardwalk and see all the families having a great time together--you have to go there at least once in your lifetime to experience Americana at it's best!

I have traveled to many places in this country and this is one of the best. So much to see and so much to do. The best thing is that it is completely safe. Safe for everyone. No problems. They keep Ocean City wonderful.

I cannot say enough about Ocean City New Jersey. Ocean City is an amazing family place I have been going to with my whole family since I was 2 years old. I am now 33 and I bring my 7 year old every year with the family as part of a tradition. She really enjoys walking to the beach everyday and going on the rides every night and getting a special treat on the boardwalk. On rainy days there is plenty to do we go mini golfing and we will watch a movie at the theater on the boardwalk.
