Ocean City, which calls itself "America's Greatest Family Resort," can add a new title: New Jersey's best beach. The Cape May County resort topped this year's list of the state's best beaches as determined by voters and coastal scientists.

Votes had been coming in since February.

Nine other beaches finished in the top ten. There are Long Beach Island (its six municipalities were judged as a single entry); Wildwood (last year's top winner); Wildwood Crest; Asbury Park; North Wildwood; Cape May; Seaside Heights; Sea Isle City, and Avalon.

New Jersey's 127-mile coastline came through the mild winter in good shape.
