Growing up on the East Coast, my idea of the beach was lots of crowds, music blaring from boom boxes, boardwalks, and beer-swilling parents yelling at their kids.  In other words, tons of fun!  Ocean Shores is the antithesis of this - except for the tons of fun part.  You won't find a big crowd on these beaches, just lots of surf (and lots of wind).  There is a section where people can drive cars on the beach too which is tons of fun but keep one eye open if you decide to nap on this section of beach!
