A common thing parents complain about when it comes to vacations is that it’s hard to plan vacations, especially when they have young children. They’re concerned that their children won’t be entertained or that it’ll be hard to find accommodation for everyone. The state of New Jersey is a great destination for families, as there theme parks galore and kid-friendly restaurants serving delicious meals for your little ones.
Ocean City, New Jersey is touted as being one of the most family-friendly beach vacation spots in the US and its official city motto, “America’s Greatest Beach Resort”, reflects the pride the city has in that title. This place is famed for its luscious beaches, but the most iconic feature is the 2.5-mile-long (4-kilometer-long) Boardwalk. Many fun and, most importantly, family-friendly activities are located all over the Boardwalk, from miniature golf to amusement parks. Pack your bags and discover the best Airbnbs in Ocean City, New Jersey.
There are a lot of Airbnbs in Ocean City, but you won’t get any closer to the beach and that iconic boardwalk than when you stay in this apartment! You’ll be able to see the Boardwalk right in front of you when you head out to the deck. So, for families who are all for convenience, this apartment is the perfect choice for you. This is the view of the apartment from the boardwalk - you really couldn’t get much closer! Can you imagine how amazing it would be to wake up to this view? Feel the first sun’s rays warm your skin, smell the salt-tinged air, peer into the distance, and watch the gentle crashing of the waves on the seemingly endless stretch of beach. This modern-style kitchen is well-maintained and also stocked with sufficient cutlery and cooking equipment. Picture this: you guiding your child in chopping something for the first time, or you blowing on a spoon and offering the cooled concoction to your child helper, an expression of sheer delight as the delicious flavour bursts in their mouth. Cooking can be a glorious bonding activity that you can do with your child, and this kitchen is perfect for that! Well-lit bedrooms are always a plus! Especially when you just want to enjoy the warmth of the sun from a snug and comfortable bed.

If you’re not a native of this city, you should make sure to immerse yourself in the vibrant culture. One of the best ways to appreciate a culture is by having a local meal, and this home is strategically located close to many local restaurants. And, if you’re craving some beach fun with your family, the beach is also relatively nearby. Among the many rentals in Ocean City, NJ, this option is great for foodies and avid beachgoers. There are plenty of seats in this cosy living-room-cum-dining-area, so don’t hesitate to take up as much space as you want and take part in some fun-filled activities with your family members. We recommend a good ol’ board game. The bedrooms are all lovely and comfortable; just imagine the springiness of the bed and how soft the sheets will feel on your face. Why not take a cheeky nap before your family and you head off for dinner after a fun day at the beach. After a long, exhilarating day at the beach, you might have sand in places where sand should not ever be. This home has you covered as there are outside showers you can use to freshen up with before you drag yourself into the actual home. After you and your partner have tucked your children into bed, kick back and relax on the deck. Crack open a bottle of red wine, and have slow sips as you catch up with one another.

A definite draw to this particular rental is its rooftop patio. Just being there and peering over the expanse of land, really makes you feel as though you’re at the top of the world. Start the day off with a high by catching the sunrise. Take in the sights and sounds of the city waking up, and feel invigorated, ready to start your own day, before heading into the home again. If you’re too tired to head out with your children to the beach, you can still have fun indoors. Cable TV is available and you can just watch some comedy programmes and enjoy the company of your favourite people. After having an exciting day with your family, you’re probably exhausted! So what you need is a comfortable place to rest. These beds beckon you into their luxurious embrace, just lie back and relax after a fun day. You started the day off with a sunrise on the deck, how about ending the day on the rooftop patio? Glance up and enjoy an unhindered view of the gorgeous and multi-hued sunset.
