Here are five things that the real estate experts and longtime Ocean City, NJ, residents at Monihan Realty say are a must during Memorial Day weekend in Ocean City, NJ. 

Gillian’s Wonderland Pier

Since Memorial Day weekend is earlier in the season, the weather is not always reliable enough for a dip in the ocean. This provides a great opportunity to check out the city’s famous amusement parks located throughout the boardwalk, such as Gillian’s Wonderland Pier. Since 1929, Gillian’s has been providing screams of joy and fear with their rides. Their huge Ferris wheel is seen when you enter the city, and the infinite view of the horizon meeting the ocean makes this a must during Memorial Day weekend in Ocean City, NJ. 

Manco and Manco Pizza

Boardwalk pizza is a staple for people visiting the coastline of the Jersey Shore. Manco and Manco’s is a family-owned restaurant that has been a staple of Ocean City since 1956. Their crispy crust paired with homemade sauce and gooey, melted cheese will make you want to drop all of your regular pizza places, and make the trip to Manco and Manco’s whenever you are craving a slice. Not only is it tasty, but it also is fast and cheap, making it a viable option during the business of Memorial Day weekend in Ocean City, NJ.
