It is smaller beach but very clean. Gets very crowded in certain areas. Must pay attention to flags because they have certain sections for surfers (which I find rediculous) on days when the weather is 98 or higher and you can't swim in the ocean....More

Good size boardwalk, gets way too crowded and a lot of the people are very rude. Lots of stores to shop in!

We've been going to the Ocean City Boardwalk for years and it's always a fun time! Now with teens, they can go off on their own and when we had young children they enjoyed the rides and arcades. The food is great, something for everyone.

We loved the boardwalk so many things to do. Parking is expensive though. Hotels near the beach will cost you an arm and a leg. But this beach is so well kept and it's so peaceful there can't wait to go back. Your kids will...More

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.
