With a population of less than 12,000, Ocean City, New Jersey is like a breath of fresh sea air, providing a welcome change of pace from more congested, casino-filled vacation resort towns.
This makes Ocean City the family beach resort of choice for people looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. And with nearly eight miles of pristine beachfront available, there’s plenty of room for exploring, wandering, or simply finding a peaceful spot to watch the tide roll in on your days off. It’s been that way since Ocean City’s incorporation in the late 19th century!
As Ocean City’s oldest amusement park, Playland’s Castaway Cove has provided family fun along the boardwalk for over 50 years! Originally established in 1959, this fantastic amusement park features over thirty exciting rides for the whole family, including the Double Shot, which has been called the „Best Amusement Ride” at the shore by Atlantic City Magazine. There are also three roller coasters, including Ocean City’s only looping coaster, Python, in addition to a Tilt-A-Whirl, bumper cars, antique cars, old-fashioned train, two mini-golf courses, an arcade and the log flume ride.
