Ocean City, NJ or Ocean City MD?

What's your definition of "nicer".

I think VA Beach is much nicer but seems to have less to do on the boardwalk. The boardwalk at Va Beach is lined with hotels whereas the boardwalk at Ocean City MD is lined with tacky arcades, shops, etc.

Surf at Va Beach is a bit gentler - it is the entrance to the Chesapeake Bay, somewhat protected from the direct Atlantic waves. Beach is great. Because of beach preservation projects over the past few years, Hurricane Isabel did not do too much damage to the oceanfront, and the beach itself is wide and in great shape!

The water will be warmer in Virginia Beach no matter what time of year you go. The Boardwalk is nice but most of the shopping is on Atlantic Ave. The beach is clean and even though I have only been to Ocean City once I don't think VA Beach is ever as crowded as Ocean City was. Lots of great restaurants and only an hour from Williamsburg and Busch Gardens.
