Greatest Family Resort"
This page is
dedicated to YOU - with information so that your stay in Ocean City,
NJ or vicinity will be enjoyable. Be it spring, summer, winter or
fall...Ocean City is the best of all. There is always something for
you to do or see.
City is known as the "Family Resort" as it caters to all members of
your family. There are 8 miles of nice, clean, guarded
the whole coast. Beach tags are required from June through Labor
Ocean City has a great boardwalk. Stores, eateries and amusements are dotted along this walk
so there is something for everyone to do, to see and to eat.
Probably the most unique thing about
Ocean City is that it is a "dry" town....you cannot buy or be served
any alcohol on this barrier island. Atlantic City is 30 minutes away
driving north while Cape May can be reached in about the same time
going south. The weather temperature in the summer ranges from
around 70 to 90 degrees.
Being on the beach
either sunbathing or swimming is the number one fun thing to do.
Biking and surrey riding on the boardwalk until 12:00 AM are also
right up there. There are playgrounds scattered all over this
island, a public golf course, an excellent library and community
center. There are two great locations with basketball and tennis
courts for the "never grow old" crowd. Miniature golf courses can be
found on the boardwalk along with a waterslide, amusements of all
kinds, movie theaters, shopping and lots of food. If you want, there
is a great zoo just 20 minutes away and it's free...and then there
are the casinos in Atlantic City. For your information, there are
two hospitals very close by -
Shore Memorial Hospital in Somers Point
(formerly Burdette Tomlin Memorial Hospital) in Cape
May Court House.
along Asbury Avenue in the center of town, there are great
shops including a
small department store and many boutique shops. More boutique shops
can be found on the boardwalk also. There is an Acme, Super Fresh and a Thriftway supermarket on the island along with numerous Wawas. If
you want a mall, we have two of them nearby...the Shore Mall in
Pleasantville and the Hamilton Mall in Mays Landing. Boscov's,
Macys, Target, Kohl's, Best Buy, Penney's, Staples and more are
Avalon and Cape May also have nice shopping
