Ocean City’s two whole miles of boardwalk, located right on the edge of New Jersey’s most pristine coastline, is the perfect place for any family to spend a day — or a few — soaking up all the sun and fun the beach has to offer. It is the quintessential Jersey Shore experience, and every year provides thousands of families with memories to last a lifetime.
The boardwalk is speckled with plenty of family oriented attractions, including rides, games and even roller coasters! If you’re looking for a carnival-like setting, check out Gillian’s Wonderland Pier, located right on the boardwalk.
The boardwalk is also home to a wide variety of locally owned shops and restaurants, which means a little bit of everything for everyone.
And when the kids are tired of all the action, grab some ice cream, take a seat on one of the benches, or find an empty stretch of handrail and stare out into the Jersey shoreline that continues to remind families why they come back year after year.
