A narrow strip of land juts out from Great Egg Harbor Bay, reaching toward Lady Luck’s glitzy, East Coast home of Atlantic City. This is Ocean City, New Jersey. You could say that this is a PG-rated version of the more famous destination across the inlet. Instead of gambling and Prohibition-era style speakeasies, the attractions here are more relaxed and definitely more family-friendly. Carnival games replace blinking slot machines and the guiltiest pleasures are whipped-cream-covered funnel cakes. It’s hard to imagine how the city marries this scene with ecotours to wetlands, wildlife viewing, and a state park, but you’ll find out soon enough. Get the best of both worlds when you stay at one of our Ocean City vacation rentals.
With a nickname like “America’s Greatest Family Resort,” it’s no surprise that the northern tip of Cape May County boasts a boardwalk. Coney-Island style games, deliciously fried foods, and even mini-golf could fill your days and nights here. But if you think the wind whipping through your hair from atop the massive Ferris wheel is a thrill, imagine what it would be like watching black skimmers shoot through the air while parasailing, or catching glimpses of dolphins dancing in the waves from Atlantic Flyaway.
All stocked up on excitement and wonder for the day? Then head home to relax. And by home, we mean your own private digs at The Diplomat Beach Club Suites or one of our other vacation rentals. Whale-watch all day, play onshore all evening, then sleep like you’re back home all night long. Rinse, repeat. Many of our vacation rentals are not located in the middle of typical tourist haunts, ensuring a quiet place to retreat after an exhilarating day.
