Whether you're searching for a luxury hotel for a couples' weekend or a sizable room for the entire family, Ocean City has just what you need for a fun-filled week or weekend excursion.

Founded in 1884, Ocean City is one of the newer municipalities in the state and one of the only dry cities in the Northeast. Since its inception, the city banned the sale of liquor throughout the island community, leading to an atmosphere that's perfect for families large and small.

Widely regarded as having the most beautiful beaches in the state, Ocean City is a paradise for tanning, swimming, fishing, and more. It's incredibly popular during the summer when tourists boost the population from about 11,000 to more than 110,000. Yet even when it's crowded, the family-friendly atmosphere is a breath of fresh air. In addition, many businesses have meetings and team-building exercises here during non-peak seasons. No matter what your reason for coming to Ocean City, you're bound to find the ideal hotel to fit your specific needs, budget, and tastes.

When to Visit Ocean City, New Jersey

If you can stomach massive crowds, the ideal time to visit Ocean City is during the summer. The population at any given time from May through August can swell to nearly 10 times the actual population, causing problems with parking, reservations, and crowds. However, the temperatures outside and in the water are unbeatable and often worth the hassle. Hotels are in extreme demand during summer, so you might have to book your hotel room months in advance to make sure you get the hotel of your choice.

If you're not big on swimming or sunbathing or you want the entire beach to yourself, head to Ocean City in winter. The tourists are long gone from the area, and only the locals remain. When you want to meet people from the area, it's an excellent time to chat, while lines to some of the attractions are almost nonexistent. However, temperatures can drop below freezing, so pack accordingly. You can score a hotel room for near nothing, thanks to the low demand.

Fall is another great time to visit Ocean City, as the weather is warmer than in most other areas of the state. Highs of 70 and lows of 50 make exploration tolerable with a light jacket, and sometimes, you won't even need that. Some families still head here during the tail end of the tourist season, so hotel prices are a bit higher than in the off-season. Rooms are still far easier to find than during the summer.

To watch the city burst out of the winter with wonderful temperatures and somewhat clear skies, head to Ocean City during spring. While rain falls more during this season than any other, it tends to clear up quickly, giving you pristine weather without all the crowds. Because demand is low during spring, you can often find a superb deal on a hotel whether you book a trip well in advance or just on a whim.

Top Ocean City, NJ Attractions and Destinations

If you're visiting Ocean City, you can't afford to miss a trip to the Ocean City Boardwalk. This 2.5-mile-long boardwalk is an interesting sight and widely regarded as one of the most famous and photographed boardwalks in the world. When you don't feel like walking the 5-mile round trip, you can hail a ride on a surrey, which is a multiple-wheel and seat bicycle. Along your journey, take a ride on the Ferris wheel or grab some food or refreshments from the many vendors on the boardwalk.

When the boardwalk gets too crowded, head on down to the beach. With miles of guarded coastline, nice waves, and excellent swimming conditions, you can enjoy an entire day under the sun. The white sand is perfect for making sandcastles, and if you get there early enough, expect a high chance of finding shells with the kids.

When you want low-cost accommodations near the beach or a luxury experience with spectacular ocean views, you can find an excellent hotel to match your lifestyle and budget in Ocean City.
