Did you know that during Revolutionary War times, Ocean City was a small island on the South Jersey shore that farmers used to hide their livestock from pilferers? The high sand dunes made a perfect hiding spot!

The town of Ocean city was not incorporated until October 20, 1879 by Methodist clerics. From its religious origin, Ocean City remains a “dry” town today, and is a premier destination for families, boasting eight miles of wide, sandy beaches and two and a half miles of boardwalk.

From generations-old food favorites including Mack & Manco’s pizza, Johnson’s Caramel Corn, James Candy and Fralinger’s Salt Water Taffy to the array of shops offered on the boardwalk and in the center of town, there are plenty of off-the-beach diversions. Watching the kite fliers on the beach is great fun
for kids, and for the more daring there is always the Ocean City Ferris wheel. Or, get out of the sun and try a game of mini golf at one of the miniature golf courses on the boardwalk.

Ocean city gets 85 out of 100 on the walk-ability scale. Most amenities are easily accessible to all fitness
levels.
