    Ocean City's secrets revealed

    Ocean City has long been New Jersey's go-to family hot spot, thanks in no small part to its beachfront location and the ambience that's been created along its iconic boardwalk. Named the Best Family Beach by the Travel Channel in 2005, and the number 1 beach in the state by the New Jersey Marine Sciences Consortium, these golden sands provide the perfect setting for a family-oriented getaway. Ocean City vacation rentals offer central locations and seaside amenities to suit all budgets and tastes, so it's easier than ever to treat the kids to sun-soaked fun on the Jersey Shore.

    Surf's up in Ocean City

    The Jersey Shore has no shortage of beaches, with central Ocean City vacation rentals leaving you practically on the sand. Surfing is a local favorite, with Waverly and the 7th Street Beach both providing the perfect conditions for riding the waves. A number of local stores sell rental boards, as well as equipment and accessories, and the fact that many beaches are patrolled by lifeguards makes them ideal for beginners. Unguarded options are better for the experienced surfer looking to avoid the crowds and find a more secluded spot.

    Along the Ocean City boardwalk

    The 2.5-mile Ocean City boardwalk has been the pride of the Jersey Shore since its construction in 1880. From May to October, it buzzes with amusements and live entertainers, while in the months between November and April seasonal sales and holiday festivities dominate. Kids will love sampling tasty treats like saltwater taffy and ice cream, while adults can browse the ocean-side boutiques for jewelry and clothes. At the end of the day, bring the family together for a round of miniature golf or a few hours in one of the many arcades, ending your day out on an unforgettable high.

    Ocean City—fun in the sun

    New Jersey's humid subtropical climate brings warm, sunny summers that are tailor-made for family vacations. Temperatures soar as high as 86°F in July, making it the perfect time to hit the beach or to kick back and enjoy some leisure time on the patio of your beachfront Ocean City vacation rental. The winter months are less busy, but there's still plenty to enjoy. January temperatures can fall as low as 24°F, so make sure to pack some warm clothes. If you're willing to take the risk, you'll be rewarded with the best deals and availability on central Ocean City vacation rentals.

    Ocean City bay watch

    The scenic bays around Ocean City present spectacular vistas of the shoreline's natural beauty. Travelers can visit at dusk to take in the sunset over the ocean, while anglers will have the opportunity to catch flounder, sea bass, tuna, and more from the city's piers, docks, and bayside pavilions. To learn even more about the Back Bay ecosystem, consider renting a kayak or sailboat. The spring and fall migration periods are an especially good time to spot waterfowl gliding across the ocean, while arrestingly colorful Monarch butterflies are also commonly sighted near the golden shore.
