Good fun, clean beach. It got pretty crowded though and that was during the week. It must be nuts on the weekends. You can rent umbrellas which is nice. The kids had a great time.n

Fun vacation! Large waves to play in. Great for families. Lots of activities, night life, and restaurants, but quiet and family friendly.

This was the beach to go to growing up in PA....years later I've brought my family here and it's still a fun destination! Heavily policed...literally police on horses, foot, bikes, helicopter....you name it. Stores all sell pretty much the same things with a few neat...More

We've been enjoying Ocean City as a family for 36 years. The beaches are very clean. We've moved away from the Boardwalk area to the midtown beaches which are less crowded.

What can I say. I now live here and glad I moved. It's good to be able to go to the beach whenever I want.

We took our family here for the first time. SUPER clean and tons of stuff to do. The boardwalk during the day is great. However at night it comes alive. Amusement parks galore. Firework shows. Performers. Shopping. Food establishments. Just doesn't end..

There are levels walking into the water but there is a lower area (similar to a tide pool, very calm) for kids to play in. Great sand for building castles too.

As far as the boardwalk that is what a person prefers. We do not like the boardwalk nor does our family (ranging in age from14 to 23) plus 45 and 47 years old. Too honky tonk for us. However, it is great for people... More
