It was never an upscale place, but it sure has gone downhill over recent decades. Now it is very tacky and lower class.

I have been going to Ocean City for 54 years and I (and my wife) have always enjoyed great times walking and "people watching" on the boardwalk. In our younger years on the boardwalk we greatly enjoyed riding bikes, in-line skating and other activities. We also enjoyed our 20 years of owning nearby property and our years of boating and...

We had a great time walking the boardwalk in OC. Sun was out. People walking dogs. Beach was clean. Not much open off season.

My husband and I are here for a few days during the off season, most shops are closed but the boardwalk is always nice, clean, plenty of seating and smiles to go around, very happy place. The shops that are open are very welcoming atmosphere, we love coming back year after year.

I was not expecting there to be much activity but was surprised to see several food stands, shops, and arcades open in December (we went right after Christmas). It still retains its charm only without the massive crowds and hardly any waiting for food or to play arcade games. Definitely go even if staying in the off-season.Just dress warmly!

Grab some fresh air and exercise on the boardwalk in Ocean City. A few cute shops and delicious eats as well.

Walk and/or bike there throughout the day, especially during the afternoon/evening hours. Lots of restaurants, eateries and souvenir shops along the way. Must go!

The off season is the best time to come. The boardwalk is wide and you feel like you own the whole beach because there are so few people there.
