The Travel Channel called our classic wooden boardwalk America's best. National Geographic named it one of the top 10 in the U.S. And USA Today named it one of the nation's best boardwalks for food. In short, it's three miles of highly concentrated fun - and one more reason to get to Ocean City ASAP.
Start your day on the Ocean City boardwalk with a morning bike ride. You can bring your own, or rent one from one of our many bike shops. Or, if you'd rather just sit back and ride, the boardwalk tram can whisk you anywhere in minutes, while you enjoy a beautiful ocean view.
Day or night, there's always something happening - and quite often, it's free.
Amusements and arcades are fun for children of all ages. Catch a spectacular view from the top of our ferris wheel. Scream with delight on our roller coaster, or savor the slower pace of our magnificent 1902 carousel. Like the unusual? Visit our very own Ripley's Believe It or Not. Oh, and don't forget to stop by one of our many arcades and play to win!
Hungry? You won't be for long. Choose from famous Maryland crab cakes or delightful Delmarva fried chicken. Tear into a delicious cheeseburger or savor a smoky pit beef. Enjoy fresh-baked pizza or our famous french fries - with Ocean City dining, the menu is almost endless.
And that's before you get to dessert. There's luscious saltwater taffy, sweet caramel popcorn, thick creamy fudge, rich ice cream, fresh, hot funnel cakes, cotton candy and chocolate-covered strawberries.
After a boardwalk meal, you'll be ready to shop - and you'll find plenty of opportunities, along the boardwalk and on many side streets as well.
Up for some heroics? Relive the adventures of the U.S. Life-Saving Service, a predecessor of today's Coast Guard, at the meticulously restored Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum. Children love the Aquarium Room, featuring huge saltwater tanks with amazing sea creatures.
At night, the boardwalk fills with music and fun. During the summer, you'll find free family activities on the beach every night of the week, including concerts, movies, even beach Olympics!
And that's just the beginning. Experience one of America's best boardwalks for yourself. It's one more reason to get to Ocean City ASAP.
