Philadelphia, PA - There is nothing more enjoyable than spending a summer afternoon on one of the Boardwalks along the Jersey Shore.
Exploring The Ocean City Boardwalk
It is inevitable as the seasons change and the days are getting warmer and longer that I make a pilgrimage to the Jersey shore boardwalk. Having spent many summers there as a child, vacationing down the shore may explain my yearly draw to the Ocean City Boardwalk.
Every year a few shops change, but the overwhelming majority remain the same. It is this consistency that makes the boardwalk such a yearly treat.
Besides the arcades, mini-golf, and assorted beach shops, the highlight for me is the food. The boardwalks of the Jersey shore teem with food of all sorts.
The beautiful smells first greet you as you wander in front of the stores. One would think this mix of aromas to be unappealing, but quite the contrary, it is heavenly.
The most challenging choice is where to start. Should it be the boardwalk French fries or pizza? Maybe wash it down with an ice-cold coke or strawberry banana smoothie? Whatever the day's choice is, the possibilities are endless.
In Ocean City, New Jersey, you have to make room for Mack & Manco's Pizza and Johnson's Caramel Corn. These two are perhaps the highlights of the boardwalk. Besides pizza and caramel corn, be sure to save room for ice cream. Ocean City, New Jersey, offers many varieties of ice cream. Here are some of my recommendations on where to eat along the boardwalk of Ocean City.
Often I am reminded by friends about the delicious boardwalk french fries. If you love french fries, then you will definitely find some to your liking. Thick and thin and with or without cheese, fries abound on the boardwalk. Personally, I recommend Kohr Brothers. They have three locations in Ocean City. Also, See...

After spending a day gorging myself on the delicious food offered by the Ocean City boardwalk, it is time to retreat into the beach house, savor the smell of the salt air in the breeze, and relax into a comfortable chair as the sounds of the ocean lap at the beach.
