Ocean City Beach reviews
We flew our kites twice this winter, it was a great way to enjoy the ocean when it's cold out. Beautiful place.

My brother Walter and I love the beach in Ocean City, because it is clean and wide and the water is refreshing. The dunes add beauty and environmental protection.

You can certainly feel the family vibe here. The parking was absolutely horrendous. Usually you can find parking even if you had to pay for it. But I feel that's a given coming to a beach. So overall it was a friendly, drama-free atmosphere.
Great family town in NJ and in my opinion the east coast. If only they'd allow BYO at restaurants 😒
