Other than Alcohol sales and more high rises, is there any real difference?

I've been going to OCNJ my whole life and have always found it weird that people from NJ go to OCMD. It's a farther trip, and the beach is worth the 3 hour drive (mind you I live in Vineland and consider the hour drive to Cape May too long to go to the beach and just go to OCNJ).

BTW I just saw a slight typo, I meant to say the beach isn't worth the 3 hour drive

Ocean City, NJ for me. I've been vacationing there since I was a kid. It's one of my favorite beach towns anywhere. It's a town of houses instead of highrises, the boardwalk is more alive and fun (IMO), the beach is wide and clean. OCNJ has an old downtown district that has a small-town getaway feel. Ocean City, MD (and for that matter, Virginia Beach, Myrtle Beach, etc.) seems more like a high-intensity tourist trap.
