Ocean City NJ is also known as 'America's Greatest Family Resort' and has been a popular summer place for more than a century. Like many Jersey shore resorts, Ocean City has a classic boardwalk where a lot goes on. Summer programs, beach games and water sports include surfing, jet skiing, boating, fishing, biking, playing miniature golf, and nature walks.
The resort has one of the Jersey Shores' most scenic hikes - a one-hour nature beach walk - along a winding guided trail. The hike is a must-do for bird-watchers, shell collectors, aspiring marine biologists, and vacationing families.
With many houses and spacious apartment rentals that can sleep 8 or 9 people, Ocean City attracts large family groups for family reunions on summer vacation. By-owner vacation rentals allow people to make themselves at home on the Jersey shore for a week or two in the summer. With Ocean City being so close to Atlantic City, the grown-ups can drive into Atlantic City for a night on the town.
While the typical minimum stay vacation in the summer is one week - seven days - in the Fall, owners offer Fall Specials and Weekend deals for shorter stays. Be sure and contact each owner directly through their listing on OurTownRentals.com for details.
