My family has been vacationing in Ocean City, NJ for as long as I can remember! And now that I have a family of my own, it’s our go-to destination too! In addition to the usual beach activities, there are so many fun things to do in such a peaceful, family-oriented town. We absolutely LOVE it there!
Last year Hurricane Sandy did a number on the beautiful beach town, but I’m happy to say that Ocean City is back and ready for your vacation!
So what is there to do other than spend the day at the beach? Well from the 2-1/2 mile long boardwalk full of amusement rides, arcades, miniature golf, lots of delicious seaside snacks, and shopping to the more than 100 shops and restaurants in Ocean City’s “Downtown,” your family will be in for more fun than you can fit in your schedule. Part of Ocean City’s legacy includes it being a “dry” town. Alcohol is not sold on the island and consumption is not permitted in public places including the beaches. Nightlife is not far though, as the bright lights and casinos of Atlantic City are only 10 miles away.
Ocean City is actually an island. And there’s not a greater feeling in the world than crossing the bridge and ending up in America’s Greatest Family Resort! I can’t wait to cross that bridge when my family vacations there again this year 🙂
