Ocean City not an ‘Awesome Boardwalk’?

Though three Jersey Shore locations are on Budget Travel Magazine’s 19 “Awesome Boardwalks” list, Ocean City is surprisingly not included. 

The list includes Wildwood, Atlantic City and Point Pleasant along with Ocean City, Maryland; but the popular, family-oriented Ocean City boardwalk in New Jersey was exempt. 

One vacationer says, “I’ve been coming to the Ocean City Boardwalk my entire life. I absolutely love it. It’s better than any of the other boardwalks, as far as I’m concerned.” While another compares it to a favorite restaurant as in she wants it to succeed, but also wants to keep it a secret.
