Ocean City is Maryland’s only coastal community, a vacation destination geared for family fun, adventure and unlimited activities. Ten miles of breath-taking beach and the classic, world famous, three mile wooden Boardwalk are the major attractions. Stroll the famous Boardwalk bustling with amusement parks, arcades, restaurants and old fashioned treats along the seafront. A Boardwalk favorite is the Giant Ferris Wheel or take a ride on the 100 year old Carousel, an Ocean City tradition. Explore the cultural side of Ocean City with a visit to the Center for the Arts or an Art Festival at Northside Park. The Ocean City Lifesaving Station Museum is a must see with fascinating exhibits, mermaid displays and a fun aquarium filled with amazing sea creatures.
Ocean City has it all!
Ocean City is mostly all about the beach lifestyle and it’s a good one! With the Boardwalk stretching along the beach there are endless attractions, activities and entertainment right on the sands. There are beach concerts, movies, Olympics and evening fireworks. The festivities never end. Fun for the whole family. Build a sandcastle, ride the waves, horse-ride along the shore, sift the sand for seashells or get active with some water sports. Golfers have their pick with courses along the water, near the beach or nestled in the forests. If fishing is your sport, Ocean City is the White Marlin Capital of the world and a fisherman’s paradise. Cast your line from the beach, the Oceanic Pier or from a kayak in the tranquil waters. There is no better way to end your day than with a bonfire on the beach watching sand crabs that glow in the dark. Ocean City has it all!
Experience nature and wildlife at nearby Assateague Island - 37 miles of beaches, bike paths and untouched nature where wild horses roam. Maryland’s only ocean park is alive with marine life. Crabs play in the sand, the dolphins play in the breakers and you may be lucky enough to spot a whale.
Ocean City, the East Coast’s favorite family vacation destination.
