My family is planning a visit to Ocean City MD in Jul. We're staying around 4th St. in a small condo and I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on that area? I've read it's worn down. I'm not a high-rise kind of person so old school doesn't bother me so long as it's safe.

Hoping it's decent to walk to the boardwalk/beach with two little ones?

And basically, any tips/suggestions for the stay? Seems like there is plenty to do.

Thanks!

Yes it's safe.

That end of the Boardwalk tends to get crowded in the evening, that's where the off hours attractions are-the arcades, Trimper's, etc.

Old equates to "run down" to many people. What that means is that the buildings aren't the high rises further north and are more "original Ocean City". We stay at the Phillips Apartments around 11th street or so, which are also "old" (which, as I said, means rundown to many people).

Great! Thanks for the feedback. Actually prefer seeing the real architecture to the Disney stuff anyway. We're a cpl blocks off the boardwalk so hopefully won't be too bad, but we'll manage.

Yes that area is very congested during peak season but you can walk to whatever you need from there. The most recent condo boom of 1995-2005 or so really changed the character of OC (IMO) but downtown is still pretty much the same.
