Boardwalk fanatic.

My favorite place to vacation in the summer is Ocean City because the boardwalk is so nice. Very family friendly! Nothing like wildwood!

It's a nice clean beach with a different clientele than the beaches to the north. Maybe just a little quieter, with a few more kids depending on the day.

The Ocean City Boardwalk is very long - 2 1/2 mile in length. It has many places to shop. It is also great for walking, jogging and bike riding.

We had a good time walking the 2 mile Boardwalk. We saw an upscale jeweler's, Henry's, selling Pandora, and Alex and Ani. There were many themed miniature golf parks,, many pizza places, several fudge and candy store, and only one dairy Queen. Lanes are marked for runners and bikes. There are several attractive amusement piers built out toward the street.... More

I have been coming to Ocean City for near 70 years...yes, 70. Times change. People change. fads come and go. Remember the "fake dog on a leash"? If there is a constant at the New Jersey beaches...whoops, shore, it has to be the boardwalk in Ocean City. "Kitchy" shops, lots of fad and fast food places, doughnuts from Browns, Johnson's...

OC has a nice boardwalk with a large selection of shops, restaurants, and activities. I recommend visiting Manco's pizza and Ike's Crab Shack.

We were in philadelphia for a few days, looking for things to do with my 3 year old, someone recommended ocean city board walk and the beach. The drive wasn't short from Mount Laurel where we stayed the night before, but totally worth it. Since it's after labor day, no beach tag required, something unexpected, parking was free too. We...

For the most part, the Jwesey boardwalks are very similar. O C boardwalk is safe, well patrolled and in good repair.
