We are not really 'beach people' in the summer. We prefer the beach in the winter. We like walking and watching the waves and collecting shells. We was a perfect time for US to come for our 'beach fix'!

Not the best beach I have ever been to but a beach is a beach. If you are looking for a very fun upbeat vacation then OC is for you. I would not recommend OC for a relaxing family vacation.

Great beach. It was offseason during a nice weekend. Birdlife was outstanding, piping plovers, a bald eagle and more. Beach was clean and people walking were friendly and outgoing, as were their four legged friends. Very nice time.

Really love this beach. It is absolutely huge and well maintained. It goes on for mile after mile. Fantastic sand. Whether you want a touristy boardwalk or less busy sand. It has it all

If you’re looking for somewhere to go this summer, Ocean City Maryland would be the best place to go! Ocean City, Maryland has many beautiful beaches, lovely hotels, delicious restaurants, and it is family friendly! There are so many great hotels to choose from, there’s the Princess Royale, the Carousel and the Coastal Inn. These are all very wonderful places... More

This beach is great for a family vacation. It has a beautiful deep sandy beach with lots going on, on the boardwalk--like shops, games, amusements parks, restaurants, and ice cream, to name a few things.

I like OC alot, and its always nice to go walk the boardwalk, walkonthe pier, ride some rides. In the summer it is usually quite crowded. More as you move down to the end. Its a bit too much especially in the water and on the beach. This is popular with younger crowd. They have been doing a good job... More
