Come to Inn the Gardens Bed and Breakfast in
Come and have fun during the summer on the beach or 2½ mile boardwalk. Picture yourself splashing in the waves, basking in the sun, or arriving at one of the delicious eateries here in town. There is something for everyone; walking, biking, strolling the boardwalk, amusements, swimming, surfing, kayaking, parasailing, fishing, jet skiing, cruising, whale and dolphin watching and of course there is always shopping along Asbury Avenue with all the quaint shops. There are also great golf courses close by.
Cape May is only 28 miles from Ocean City, and Atlantic City is 8 miles away. Many guests enjoy seeing concerts in Atlantic City or attending one of their entertainment venues, then crossing the bridge and staying here in Ocean City. Best of both islands!
