Boardwalks have not changed since the last time I've been to one. Mini golf, rides, pizza, ice cream, popcorn, more food, more games, more stores to buy stuff. Love! Totally overstimulating. Totally expensive. For those of you who don't know...Ocean City is COMPLETELY dry. That...More

This is exactly what we were hoping for. Kitschy souvenir stores, food concessions, rides, buskers, and more. Bicycles and surreys were abundant in the morning. Evening, the boardwalk fills with people. Very family-friendly. Great vibe. Lots of police presence. Lots of treats to choose from!

I love coming here. The shops vary from the dollar store, to high priced jewelry to arcades and restaurants. Fun to people watch or browse in the stores

There's a place a block or two off the boardwalk called Spadafora's Seafood. Excellent food. I had lobster and my mother had scallops. Nice wait staff too. I highly recommend it.
