It was extremely refreshing to be at a beach where alcohol is not allowed in all of Ocean City ! Having a little one and wanting wholesome family fun w/o college kids drinking at the beach---this is the place!

Traveled the boardwalk the first weekend in october. It is a long boardwalk with lots of different and unusual store, entertainment, and restaurants.

The boardwalk is more relaxed in the fall, and right now part of it is undergoing reconstruction, but it's a wonderful sensory experience even in colder weather, especially when the popcorn places are open or one goes to Manco & Manco for some pizza. Just strolling the boards is a great way to see the sand and the sea without... More

Great place to bring the kids, family friendly lots to do & plenty of cheap eats and rides, alcohol free town so you don't have to deal with the normal boardwalk attitude that you would in wildwood or Atlantic City

Unfortunately the boardwalk was under repair in a number of places and and many of the businesses were closed for the season. It was still a beautiful day to have a relaxing walk.

After the season, there are still many shops and activities open on the boardwalk. Very family friendly, and not as sketchy as AC's boardwalk.

School starts and the crazy hustle and bustle of summer screeches to a peaceful, quiet spot to just relax and hear nothing but the ocean waves. Great place for families to make great memories. We are thinking about getting a cabin for Thanksgiving and have the whole family able to enjoy the time together.
