Known as “America’s Greatest Family Resort," Ocean City has been regarded as a family oriented seaside resort for more than a century. Situated in the northern part of the Jersey Cape, Ocean City is less than 20 minutes from the entertainment center of Atlantic City. Fine restaurants, wonderful shops, eight miles of well maintained beaches, an exciting boardwalk, and attractions for all ages create an idyllic environment. Popular activities include boating, fishing, jet skiing, and other water sports as well as golfing, biking, tennis, and sports play. The local Arts Center and Historic Museum add richness to the community, while the refurbished 1928 Ocean City Music Pier serve as a focal point of entertainment that includes concerts. The Bayside Center on Bay Avenue features a calendar of special events including theatrical productions. Corson's Inset State Park adds to the long list of regional attractions.
