Ocean City was featured in a national magazine’s 31 Best Beach Vacation edition. The May edition of Coastal Living hit news stands this week with Ocean City getting the first two pages of the article dedicated to the resort. To develop this article the editor of Coastal Living reached out to the leading expert, Dr. Beach, aka Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, the director of Florida International University’s Laboratory for Coastal Research. Ocean City is listed first in the category of family fun and is one of only three beaches that are noted as a Great Value. The writer, Steve Millburg, notes that Ocean City, “has all the ingredients for a rousing good time: eight miles of wide, lifeguard-staffed beaches, a boardwalk lined with souvenir shops and snack bars, an amusement park and a water park.”
This notoriety comes on the heals of many accolades that Ocean City received last year including #1 Beach in New Jersey, #1 Beach in New Jersey for Day Trippers, and #1 Beach in New Jersey for Ecotourism.
