Known as “America’s Greatest Family Resort,” Ocean City, the northernmost beach resort of the Jersey Cape, is known to be a true family vacation destination and was recognized by Vacation Idea Magazine in 2016 as one of the 25 Best Family Beach Vacations on the East Coast


While the award winning beach is the main reason why so many people love Ocean City, the three mile boardwalk is an award winning attraction of its own.  The boardwalk is alive with activity throughout the day and night with bike riders and joggers in the morning, and amusement seekers, shopper's and foodies at night.
