The best things to do in Ocean City, NJ

Ocean City, NJ, is one of the prettiest and oldest places to visit in the Garden State, with one unfortunate caveat: It’s a dry town. Don’t let that deter you—the spot is still one of the most popular weekend getaways from NYC. From oceanside to bayside, the town is bursting with amazing sights to see, as well as some of the best restaurants for delicious eats and the best candy stores to grab sweet treats. Don’t get it twisted: This place is not Snooki’s Jersey Shore, but it just might be yours once you get a glimpse at all the charm and beauty it has to offer. Make sure these 10 things make your OCNJ trip bucket list. RECOMMENDED: See the essential guide to New Jersey
