  • Great place for bird photography along the upper and lower part part of the Visitor's Center, especially during May. Plenty of white egrets, and other shore birds.

  • Awesome boardwalk! It's very clean and has tons of great places to eat, shop, and play games. There's also lots of amusement park rides and a water park. My favorite store is the Surf Mall, they had a lot of fun shops in there. The castle in front of the rides at Gillian's Wonderland Pier is really cool.
  • For day trip best to arrive early. Parking lots are pricey. The alternative is street meter parking. There is plenty of bike rental vendors. That is always fun. Finding the right spot on the beach can also be tricky what with all the tents & canopies. But once settled just relax. Take nice walk/run on the beach or the boardwalk. There is a fee for beach tag and the young inspectors walk around asking for them. Always have them handy. There things to do and see around town. Worth Exploring!
  • A classic Jersey boardwalk with plenty of amusement for people of all ages. *its a dry town, no alcohol. Rides, shops, biking, restaurants, candy shops. It's wide and able to accompany bikes and people it narrows to two lanes toward the the end & it's roughly 2.50 miles long from beginning to end. We really enjoyed it. The Atlantic City skyline can be seen clearly here. Absolutely gorgeous beach too
  • At 53 years old, I have been going to the Ocean City boardwalk since I was born. My parents favorite place for us when my brother and I were younger. Now I have been going with my own family for almost 20 years and we absolutely love every second we're there. Lots of shops, food and souvenirs. My 15 yr old son also loves being there and bought his girlfriend lots of stuff.
  • Had a great time here over labor day with my family. We went to the beach everyday and to the boardwalk. I loved walking the board walk each day. People were very friendly and the food was great.
