    Nice in the off season
    Visited in late April, so the crowds weren't bad at all. I would imagine that during the summer, this place gets congested and overly busy. Definitely hit Dolle's Candyland. The taffy is good, but the chocolates are better. If you're looking for souvenirs and have some time, I recommend visiting a few places to scope out prices. The same item can cost double in some stores over others.

    Fun in the sun
    The OC boardwalk is a fun place to stroll, shops with great foods - Thrashers Fries, Dumsers ice cream, Fishers Popcorn. Playland with Skee Ball, Pokerino and many more games. Goodto just sit and watch, ride a bike, shop for gifts, etc. Just a good family-friendly place to go.

    Iconic Boardwalk
    Over the years, our family has visited Ocean City (New Jersey), which also has a nice boardwalk, and inevitably people tell us that we need to go to the boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland. So when the opportunity came up, we were delighted! Despite heavy traffic getting into the area, we were able to find parking and spent a pleasant hour or two strolling up and down, checking out the shops, restaurants, and amusements, and just people watching. The beach looked inviting, and there were restrooms placed conveniently along the way.

    Must visit
    A must visit spot in ocean city . Boardwalk is a happening place . Lots of activities for kids and adults .. lots of shopping , magic shows , kids games , restaurants , bars etc . Beach volleyball is quite common here . Love this beach . Parking is a bit crazy but we got it 5 mins away from boardwalk. You can spend atleast 5-8 hours here . Overall a very good place .. even though it’s expensive , it’s a must visit attraction when in ocean city …

    The Boardwalk is Buzzing
    The Boardwalk in Ocean City is exciting and full of people in search of food and fun. Lots of restaurants and souvenir stores along the stretch of Oceanfront sidewalk. The trolley is fun and efficient albeit a bit pricey. Kids will love Jolly Rodgers Amusement Park and Ripley's. Many Putt Putt golf courses around the area too.

    Nice boardwalk but need some improvement to make it more family friendly .
    This boardwalk is really nice. It has a tram that runs back and forth for 4$ one way which is nice. It has lots of reataurants and shopping. And at the end of the boardwalk there is a amusement park. The things that need improved are the clothing that is for sale with ignorant words for people with little kids. And we seen lots of inappropriate bathing suits.

    Love Ocean City NJ!!!
    OC Boardwalk has something for all ages. Great place to bring the family especially the little ones. The beach and boardwalk are very well-kept and new stores are popping up every summer. I'm always impressed which is wht I keep coming back year after year.

    Great walk, lots of action
    I read about the boardwalk, and decided we'd stop on our trip to stretch our legs. Since it was mid-week in September, we were able to park on the street for free. We walked from 7th street to the water, which was about a mile. The boardwalk has a lot of fun stores and fast food places. The beach looked amazing. I imagine this place is hopping during the summer! I would have loved to walk the whole thing, but time didn't allow for that.

While we did not take in all three miles of the Boardwalk, we did take in a good portion of it, mostly from the Park Place Hotel down to the Inlet area.
It was discouraging to have the garage-style door at Ripleys Believe It or Not museum brought down in front of our faces as we were walking towards the ticket window. Darn off-season.
I tried a Strawberry shake at Dumsers which was delicious and I bought some Ocean City Maryland sweatshirts for myself and our dog sitter who was caring for our mutts.
I didn't get to try the famous Thrashers fries so I'll have to remember to do that next time I'm in town.

Stayed on boardwalk
Never had to leave, except trip to casino.
Prices were up again, but still enjoyed eating outdoors viewing the ocean!

One of my favorite go to places when I go to the beach. Lots of shops, arcades, and food. Also like to go to Assateague Island when I’m there.

The hotel was nice but the front desk reception was horrible ruin my trip. The person on the desk was like we are bothering him. I just wanted to check in on my phone getting virtual, but it wasn’t working so I had to come up to the front Desk and ruin my trip.
