    Reliable hotel


    Port-O-Call Hotel is one of the biggest and most visible hotels in Ocean City. You can't miss it's tacky pink 80's exterior either. At an in-season rate of $200 a night what makes staying at the Port-O-Call worth it is the fact that it's ocean-front, impeccably clean, and perfect for the person who will sacrifice charm for reliability. The decor in every room identical- clean, reasonably appointed, spacious dressing area, balcony, etc. But the rooms lack any personal touches or charm of some smaller hotels in the area- but you can always be sure you will get the same service.

    Unique Quality: Pool, oceanfront, restaurant, excellent location.

    Directions: Located at 15th Street and Wesley Avenue overlooking the ocean.

Ocean City in October

by rkid21

My family tries to visit Ocean City, New Jersey once a year. We usually go in May or September. Unfortunately, the place we rent is completely booked in both those months, and October is the first opening. I have never been to Ocean City in October, so can anyone tell me if it is a nice time to visit? Are the shops on the boardwalk open? What is the weather like?

Thank you! Any info would be greatly appreciated.

There is often an "Indian summer" within the first few weeks of October. It is a long shot but I say go for it. October is a gorgeous time of year in Southern N.J.
The first week there is a folk festival on the music pier. Many of the buisness should still be open. They also have activities on the other weeks. The further into the fall you go the fewer businesses will be open.

You'll love Ocean City in October. Usually it's quite warm here still. The crowds will be gone and mostly locals will be left behind. Most of the places on the boardwalk will be closed, but there are a few places that are open year-round. The rules are a lot more laxed in the off-season too, so you'll have more freedom to do things you would be otherwise prohibited from doing. Be aware that it is imperative that you make dinner reservations well in advance for the few year round restaurants in advance. After the exodus of tourists in September, most of the restaurants close for the season and leave only about 5 to deal with all the remaining locals. The Island Grill is the best eats on the island. And Barrel's, which is take out, is great! Good luck and have fun.

I enjoy Ocean City in October! I think that the weather is usually great, but I love cooler weather. And yes, boardwalk shops are still open!

A Long Line of Shore Goers

by Rhondaj

My family has been going to the shore for generations. Here is my Great Aunt Ellie at Atlantic City in the late 20's, before it became an undesirable beach. Can you imagine wearing this outfit in the water? And that's as good as it got for woman watchers!

Don't be too cheap

by OCNJBritt

I don't think I have sensed a Jersey shore town with more local pride than Ocean City. To be a courteous visitor, I suggest doing two things:
1. Just buy your beach tags (don't try evading the beach patrol by running in the water) and
2. Please pick up after yourself on the beach

Yep. It's that easy.

Always have your camera handy!


Keep it simple.

Make sure your camera is protected from the sand and salt air! Summer, Sandles and a bathing suit.

We have four seasons here. Dress warm and experience the shore in the other three and you'll be pleasantly surprised! Most of the boardwalk stores close during the winter but you can get anything you need downtown. Today's digital cameras let you enjoy your photos and videos instantly!

Boogie Boarding

by Rhondaj

Fun for all ages! Not all NJ beaches allow boogie boards but Ocean City is one that does. You stand out in the water about waist deep or more, catch a wave, flop on your board and ride it in as far as possible. Other boarders and hapless swimmers make a few collisions and/or wipe outs inevitable, but they are always mild mishaps. No real danger here! a boogie board-if you don't have one-well, that's what the boardwalk is there for! They run $12 on up.
