Since my first visit in 1967 the boardwalk has remained a joy for me...and now, my grandchildren. No booze means no boozy, loudmouths. Lots of buskers, mini-golf and food that I really shouldn't eat...but it's great.

Beware of the crowded beaches. They only allow you to swim between flags placed in the sand by the lifeguards. The lifeguards crowd all the swimmers into a small space and it's ridiculous. All that beach and such a limited swimming area. Delaware and Maryland...More

We visited OC boardwalk one afternoon. I really liked how clean it was and very family friendly. One of the best boardwalks in NJ!

Always enjoy this boardwalk. Plenty to do for everyone. It's a dry town so no bars. They have rides and activities for kids of all ages. Also have plenty of food and shops and fun for adults.

The boardwalk has many things to do and eat. In the morning there are many bike riders and it's a little crowded on the smaller boardwalk

Some of the arcades are indoors. There is an AC aquarium nearby that's good for young kids. Lots of restaurants & coffee shops to kill time in.
