No beer - No Way!
Jun 2021
I landed at the Ocean City Airport for an overnight stop on my way to Florida. The FBO was closed at 4:30 PM .And no way to get to a hotel because there were no Uber drivers around there, I called a hotel to see if they could help but all I got was a cold brush off when i asked if they had a restaurant close by that served beer. No transportation and no beer is a show stopper for me. I got back in my plane and flew 9 miles to Atlantic City. Ocean City must be run by the Taliban or maybe seventh century Christian Bible Thumpers.

The beach is a true Jersey gem and beautiful. I saw people of all ages, lots of gorgeous photo spots and plenty of room to relax. The view is breathtaking and relaxing.

Our room was beach/ocean front with a balcony so the beach was our view. Never too crowded which made it very relaxing

Nice Beach Day, But if Worried About COVID, Rules Not Enforced
Oct 2020
Ocean City Beach is a clean beach with a wide, fun boardwalk. Nearly everything (arcades, amusement, restaurants, ice cream, booths, shopping) is open and it's a really charming area. The amusements are expensive ($5 per person for a short ride) but fine for all ages. Arcades are cheap compared to similar arcades at Point Pleasant Beach and other Jersey Shore beaches.

One problem is that no one is enforcing the COVID-19 mask rules within the amusement sections. Masks are mandatory in those sections, but masks are often pulled down, off to the side, sometimes off and staff members let that happen. Go at your own risk.

On the boardwalk, where masks are not mandatory, I would say it's about 75% to 25%, non-mask vs. mask, which we as a family were comfortable with because we were not only outside, but properly spaced. Within the amusement sections, people were a little more tightly fit and of course, waiting in line for rides.

The beaches are well guarded and clean. You can rent umbrellas and chairs. The beach fees are reasonable.

Off Season Get Way
Sep 2020
Beaches were magnificent even during off-season. We went during September 2020 and they were still well maintained and cleaned on a daily basis. We walked stitches from 5th all the way to the end of the island at 58th street. Wonderful and relaxing. Lots of sand and plenty of room during these Covid times. Ocean City N.J. still has some of the best beaches in N. J.

Beautiful and Clean!
Sep 2020 • Couples
Beach is swept daily and well patrolled. No smoking or animals are allowed on the beach. It is one of the cleanest beaches I’ve been to, due to lack of seaweed. Plenty of trash receptacles. Water is much warmer than further north on the East coast. Fun to see the dolphins. Great for surfing as well!

Very crowded, swimming not allowed
Sep 2020 • Couples
I like to swim long distance along the shore. At all the other NJ beaches you just inform the lifeguards and they radio from one station to another that there is a swimmer. That is how it works in Long Branch, Atlantic City, Ventnor, Margate and many other places. Not in Ocean City. You have to stay in the crowded area between signs, no long distance swimming.

Quiet/Clean

The room we booked gave us Beach tags, so not sure how much the entrance was, but it's a short walk to water. And peaceful.
