Ocean City NJ Boardwalk is great. Keep in mind Ocean City NJ is a "dry" town, so no alcohol sold anywhere. The boards are clean, many souvenir shops, clothing, restaurants. Casual. And of course right over the beach. Bicycle rentals. People zz a galore, movie theater, lots of mini golf, water park, rides and a new this year roller coaster.... More

I went to Ocean City Boardwalk in April 2016 during the construction of the park along with some shops which are to open soon and before the summer. Eventhough the rainy weather was like never ending, when the sunshine comes out, the boardwalk was a scene. Everyone comes out. However, I was told that if I want the true experience,... More

FAR bigger and better than the boardwalk of Atlantic City! We had no idea it even existed until we visited with friends who insisted we go to the Music Hall there. As you might imagine, the beach is wonderful also, but that Boardwalk is definitely the best I've ever been on.

Lots of fun on the OC boards. Running or riding bikes in the morning. Lots of places to eat and plenty of rides for kids. This is the ultimate family destination. No bars make it family friendly!!

Wife and I are year round islanders. We love the boardwalk and walk all year long. We think the fall is the best time of year, because it is less crowded yams many stores are still open. In the winter there is Shriver's and Fudge Kitchen, but no place to get coffee. Pizza is always available.

Something about Ocean City NJ's boardwalk has been much better than other boardwalks that we've been to. We appreciated that it wasn't as much of a "high school" boardwalk, and much more family oriented.

Ocean City Boardwalk has been for years and still is: the BEST boardwalk on the East Coast! It is kept clean, beautiful, and always is a great time. It is very large- you can park, and walk the boards all day. There is tons of shops, places to eat, and benches to just relax on and enjoy the fresh ocean... More

OC's boardwalk is a great place to shake off the stress of the daily grind. The shops there are never going to ooh or aah anyone but the tourists, but the boardwalk is always clean and well maintained. Trash cans are never overflowing, and the shop owners are always engaging and friendly. We like going during the off season, because... More
