What is Ocean City like?

If you are looking for fun apartments, New Jersey has a good place to check out along the shore—Ocean City. This town offers a resort feel, and it is family-friendly. Some of the features that make this place so nice include eight miles of beach front and a two-and-a-half mile boardwalk that serves up everything from music to entertainment. The city was rated as one of the "Best Family Beaches in America" in 2007 by the Travel Channel, and being by the water means there is always something to do. There is also a municipal golf course in town, and plenty of unique stores to keep shoppers busy for more than an afternoon.

The location of Ocean City is great, with Philadelphia only 70 minutes away and Atlantic City 20 minutes from town. Other nearby cities include Somers Point, Linwood and Northfield. There are over 100 restaurants to choose from in the area as well. If you like the "resort town" feel and prefer a family-oriented community with plenty to do, Ocean City may well be the perfect place to look for a rental property in the state of New Jersey—especially if you enjoy being near the water.
