Last summer my husband and I spent 4 days in Ocean City Maryland. One of the highlights of our trip was the boardwalk. It had to be one of the cleaniest we've seen in a long time. We have been to many boardwalks ie; wildwood...More

I've been to Ocean City many times. The boardwalk is fun, but nothing fancy, if you are looking for top-of-the-line. I love Thrasher's Fries - they do taste as good as they smell and are worth the wait in line during tourist season. Yhe Ocean...More

The trolley was neat. Full of shops and places to eat. This will sound weird, but we were looking for socks, as my one son forgot to pack any. Had a pretty hard time find them at a Boardwalk shop.

Great place to take a nice walk, sit and look at the ocean, and just relax. This time of the year there is not a lot of people, but a lot of places are closed
