Pics from Vacation in Ocean City New Jersey





We recently took a mini trip down to Ocean City, NJ last week for a few days. My hubby and I took my mother along with us and had a great time! We have been visiting Ocean City in New Jersey since I was a little girl, so it's always nice to return every year to see what has changed & what is new.

While Ocean City is not my favorite New Jersey beach destination (I love North Wildwood), it is my second and we visit there often. We had a great time up on their large boardwalk playing mini golf, hitting the arcade and doing a lot of shopping.

The beaches are very clean and my only grip is the fee to get on the beach (beach tags are required & they are expensive). There is a lot of beach room, so you never feel over-crowded with other people around. We love to watch the early morning sunrises and you can see the sun come up over the Atlantic Ocean which is really wonderful to see.

Ocean City is a family resort and you will NOT find any alcoholic beverages sold on the island at all...which is a fabulous thing for those of us who have families and don't want exposed to that. There are plenty of things to see and do in Ocean City!

WOW! That place looks gorgeous!
My sister lived in Rhode Island for a little while & it reminds of that a little bit. I LOVED VISITING HER when she lived there! The New Englad states are GORGEOUS!

That is great to take your Mom! :) Looks like you have a lot of fun!
