Things to Do

No matter what your interest, Ocean City New Jersey has something for you and your family to enjoy!

The Sun, the Sand and the Surf

If you plan to enjoy the natural beauty of the beach, you’re not alone. The Ocean City beach and Boardwalk, 8 miles in all, is why we are world-famous. In fact, OCNJ is one of America’s top vacation destinations!

Relax on the sand, catch some rays and listen to the rhythm of the surf pound down the Shore. Get some exercise with a brisk sunrise walk on the beach, collect beautiful shells and catch up on your reading. Alternatively, rent a surfboard or grab your boogie board and skim boards and cruise the breaks.

How many fish live in the sea? Find out when you cast your rod into the surf and discover why fishing is one of our most popular activities. Head out into deeper water for a day-long charter or use our directory to find out where you can dock for the day. In OCNJ, the ocean and bay are our playgrounds!

The World Famous Ocean City New Jersey Boardwalk

Our Boardwalk is known the world over for its attractions! Walk for blocks and discover dining to tempt every taste and desire, from fine seafood dining to a casual after-dinner ice cream cone. The Boardwalk features art galleries, surf shops and novelty stores perfect for finding mementoes from your trip down the Shore. And don’t forget to visit our seaside amusement park, fun for the whole family!

Golf, Tennis and More

When you’re ready for a break from the beach, check out the Ocean City Municipal Golf Course, open to nonresident players of all ages. There are many public tennis courts that host friendly rivalries all over town.
