small beach at times due to tides, crowded, noisy with kids, boardwalk has many souvenir shops, eateries,water parks and rides. Parking difficult to find and parking fees expensive. if you can put up with the crowds however, safe resort

The first time I walked these boards was a few years ago while staying in Ocean City during the summer. I have since walked them in the Spring and Fall and the view of the ocean is always beautiful. It is interesting to see that many people enjoy the walk in the Fall. Some shops are still open and there... More

Nice shops, friendly people, great boardwalk. We had so much fun on the rides and playing mini-golf. The boardwalk was nice and clean.

I have been visiting Ocean City for many years and I can not get enough. It is just a lovely place, very family friendly, lots of great food and fun. Even in the "off" season, several stores remain open on the boardwalk itself as well as in the main part of town. It is not a party town with bars... More

At the time i went there it was very cold and windy. Still i got the opportunity to take some photos and enjoy the scenery a bit. i can see this place is beautiful and filled during the summer. There are benches on the boardwalk so you can sit and enjoy the beach scenery or watch the joggers passing by.... More

This is a nice stretch of Beach to check out on foot or by bicycle. There is always something happening on the Boardwalk. Musicians, jugglers, dancers or some other variety of entertainment is generally happening on a sunny day. Get a soft drink and wander up and down the Boardwalk and you will certainly find something that attracts your attention.... More

Everybody has their HAPPY Place and this is my families HAPPY PLACE. The Ocean Boardwalk has something for everyone. Shopping, eating, playing, exercising, you name it. Stroll the 2.5 mile boardwalk taking in all the sights and sounds of summer. You could never run out of places to eat. Amusements, mini golf, for every age. If your from another planet... More

We were in Ocean City in September and what a great time to be there. No summer crowds, beautiful weather. We walked quite a ways and as senior citizens really appreciate the clearly marked lanes for walkers, bicycles and surreys. As others have said beach and boardwalk are very clean.

We've been visiting Ocean City almost yearly since 1995. Although some of the stores along the Boardwalk have changed, the family friendly vibe has remained intact. Love this place!
