Not a good beach considering you have to pay to play.....too crowded for my taste....annoying seagulls, wouldn't go back.

Ocean City has a nice beach for families. While it isn't as nice as Wildwood's beach, Ocean City is great for the family appeal. One thing to note is one has to pay a fee for beach addmittance. It's $5 a day or $10 for the week

We go to OC Beach for the sand and waves, but it is also nice to know you can take a stroll on the boardwalk and use bathrooms and restaurants when you want.

This beach is kept up very well, even during winter! There is very little trash everywhere and it's a really great place just to hang out! The boardwalk is right there if you need to grab a bite to eat, go on a few rides or even just use the bathroom! Such a good NJ shore vacation spot.

Beach is prettier here and there are more people and families doing things...even in the off season. There seams to be a nicer boardwalk and more eateries and entertainment.

Ocean City beach is clean but not good for day trippers. There are no showers to clean off, which is a major negative. There are no bars and drunks, which is a good thing.
