Corson's Inlet State Park was established in 1969 to help protect and preserve one of the last undeveloped tracts of land along the state's oceanfront. The area's natural habitats are rich in the diversity of its wildlife with primary and secondary sand dune systems, shoreline overwash, marine estuaries and upland areas in which hundreds of wildlife species live and breed. The park offers outstanding scenic beauty and endless opportunities for observing a multitude of migratory and residential wildlife species. Corson's Inlet is extremely popular for hiking, fishing, crabbing, boating and sunbathing.

Every trip to Ocean City should include a stroll along the Boardwalk. We have one of the last true boardwalks along the Jersey Shore, and it's block after block of fun and excitement! We've got classic attractions and new additions that will put a smile on every visitor's face.
You can see our 140-foot Ferris Wheel from miles around, and you'll never forget riding to the top for the amazing view of Ocean City and the surrounding communities.
You can soar through the air on wild and exciting rollercoasters. You can delight in the kids' enjoyment of our bumper cars, water rides and dozens of fun, challenging miniature golf courses. And you can spend hours exploring the unique shops selling souvenirs and more. Plus, there's snacks galore, from cotton candy to popcorn to ice cream!
The boardwalk fun begins early in the morning and continues to late at night. Enjoy the sunrise with a leisurely walk, a brisk jog, a bike tour, or a peaceful ride on a surrey. Make sure to stop for a home-cooked breakfast at one of the many ocean front cafes.
In the afternoon, the Boardwalk is alive with colors, sounds and activities. Video arcades, marvelous rides and water slides (make sure to check out Li'l Buc's Bay- the "waterpark inside a waterpark" where grown-ups are only admitted with a kid!), specialty shops and outdoor restaurants are just some of the places to go for midday fun! As we cruise into the sunset, a festive atmosphere of excitement lights up the Boardwalk. Our rides, arcades, shops and eateries make the Boardwalk come alive at night-it's a great way to complete your day!
