1. Ocean City Boardwalk

Ocean City is located just south of the Delaware border, and the boardwalk takes a day at the beach and turns it into something extraordinary. It dates all the way back to the early 1900s, when it was only five blocks long. Today, this iconic boardwalk stretches for 2.5 miles. There's always something to do along the way, and a lot of it is free. Enjoy an afternoon of people-watching while listening to buskers play, or peruse the many shops for the perfect souvenir. There are also fun attractions for the whole family, including a carousel, looping roller coaster, Ferris wheel, bumper cars, and much more.
