Great family beach vacation. Ocean City has something for everyone. Terrific clean beach. Very family oriented, especially at the northern end. Best boardwalk on the Atlantic. Friendly and helpful local staff. Great restaurants. Love the location.

Been going to Ocean City since I was small. Beach can get crowded depending where you stay but it is always soft and clean.

Such a clean beach with great waves. We love coming every year with the kids! The hotels are all so close and the water is so clean (no rocks or seaweed).

Sand cleaned every night, I think. Clean every day we went. Life guards on duty thru the day - gave instructional talk about dealing with riptides. Good beach for walking.

Very well maintained, although some people don't use the garbage cans. Dogs are not allowed on the beach but some can be seen early in the morning. Overall, the beach is excellent. There are no food/bar/bathroom facilities North of the Boardwalk. One sore spot: idiots...More

It's a breeze! The hotels are not crowded, so the rates are very special, the service is impeccable because their workload is way down. Basically, the service is better all around. I go to OC almost every Thanksgiving... More

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.
