Plenty of coastal towns call themselves “family beach resorts,” but Ocean City, NJ is the standard against which other resort towns are measured. Ocean City has been a destination for families since its founding in the late 19th century, when four partners bought the land and established summer camp meeting grounds. That’s all it took for houses and businesses to pop up on the island, and soon the town was a booming vacation destination for families from Philadelphia, New York, Baltimore, and elsewhere. By the time the famous Ocean City Boardwalk was built, Ocean City had established itself as a leading family beach resort.
That legacy lives on today in Ocean City. The Boardwalk is the center of activity on the island, and an attraction for vacationing families from many miles around. The Boardwalk has retained the classic feel of a previous era, while offering state-of-the-art attractions that appeal to parents and kids of all ages. Amusement park rides, the water park, dozens of shops & stores, arcades, and live entertainment give everyone in the family something to enjoy during a stroll on the Boardwalk.
A family beach resort wouldn’t be complete without great lodging accommodations, and they are in no short supply in Ocean City, NJ. A wide selection of excellent and affordable hotels, motels, rental homes, bed & breakfasts, and condominiums are located across the island, so you and your family can find the perfect place to stay at just the right price.
