A favorite running route in Ocean City, the Ocean City Bike Path spans across the bridges of the Rainbow Channel to Somers Point, with great views of the island-speckled coast. The path starts at 35th street, but you can pick it up from Ocean City anywhere along Haven Ave. After 2.75 miles, the path takes a sharp left along East 9th Street. At mile 3, it joins the Stainton Memorial Causeway Bridge, which island hops for 2.2 miles out to Stanton Point. This is a good place to turn around — it’s a longer run, but the views of Great Egg Harbor Bay are incredible.
Add-Ons: Ocean City Boardwalk. A classic New Jersey boardwalk. It’s 2.5 miles from 23rd St. to St. James Place. Good access to the bike path from 9th St.
