  • OC Vacation Rental

    "Hi, we just stayed at this property and had an excellent vacation. The condo was as advertised, very clean, well appointed, comfortable and in a great location on the ocean block for a reasonable rental rate in peak season. The view from the balcony was great and we even saw some dolphins swimming by, the pool was clean and never crowded. The unit included cable and Wi-Fi, with DVD players in the living room and bed room. The washer and dryer came in handy too, the rental even included parking passes for two cars. The owners sent a great packet of information regarding the beach rentals, local eateries and places to visit, all of the information was right on the money. The owners also provided contact information, so if you were to have an issue, it would be addressed, we did not have to call anyone, but it was nice to know the information was provided incase we did. I would stay here again and recommend that you consider this option if you want a great place to stay and a worry free vacation. Thank you,"

  • A great place to stay

    "We had a great vacation here. It's just over the dune to the beach and far enough off the main street to be quiet. My wife loved hearing the ocean at night, reading on the decks and the kitchen had enough pans, dishes, etc. that we were never low. The Wifi connection worked well for me. There were a lot of good restaurants nearby and we tried several, but avoid Yang's Garden. The owner was pleasant and easy to contact via e-mail and phone. We look forward to returning for another vacation."

  • Very nice condo!

    "My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this condo. It is nicely appointed and well kept. It is obvious there have been some nice upgrades recently which were much appreciated. The building is also very well maintained, both inside and out. With a very short walk to the beach, it was the perfect place for our family of four (although it could easily accommodate 6-8). Thanks for a great week (except for the end of week weather which is out of your control)! We will definitely be in touch in the future."

Ocean City Travel Tips

The small Maryland town of Ocean City, with a population of only 7,000, is really not so small: Summer weekends here can see more than 300,000 visitors! But this beautiful beach city is an excellent coastal escape for year-round travel.

Ocean City extends a little more than 9 miles from the Delaware state line to the southern inlet, and here, you'll find plenty to do to please everyone you've traveled with. The boardwalk is a star attraction in this town and features shopping and entertainment as well as amusement parks for those thrill seekers. If you love history, head downtown to see the Victorian-style houses and other old buildings lining the streets.

The town also has a long history of fishing and considers itself the "White Marlin Capital of the World." During the warm months, head to the shore or out on a boat with your fishing pole in hopes on returning with a great catch - and the evening's dinner.

While summer is normally when most people visit Ocean City, the town is delightful year-round. It experiences mild winters, so if you're hoping to escape to frigid weather of your home locale, head to Ocean City for a calmer climate and exciting activities.

Things to Do in Ocean City

- Ocean City Boardwalk: A trip to Ocean City definitely needs to include a visit to the famous Ocean City Boardwalk, which dates back to 1902. It's considered one of the best in the country and offers something for everyone. There's plenty of opportunities for family fun at the beach and amusement parks, 17 golf courses to practice your swing, spots for fishing and more. Peruse the various shops and refuel with a quick meal at one of the many eateries.

- Life-Saving Station Museum: Step back in time at the Life-Saving Station Museum to learn about the saving missions at Ocean City through time or look up your family history in the genealogy section. The museum displays interesting exhibits on storms, sea life and life-saving, including beach vacation artifacts, mermaids, shipwreck finds, more than 300 sand samples from all over the world and doll houses depicting local hotels and businesses. You can also see tanks housing local marine life. Some of the best exhibits include "The Boardwalk of Yesterday," "Davy Jones' Locker?" and "Surf's Up!"

- Northside Park: Spend some time outdoors and get a breath of fresh air at Northside Park. With 58 acres, there's plenty of space to start a pick-up game of ball on one of the many fields, try for a catch at the fishing lagoon, play with the kids on the playground or stroll around the walking paths. Pack a delicious picnic lunch and relax under the sun.

- Jolly Roger Amusement Park: For some serious family fun, head to Jolly Roger Amusement Park at the pier or uptown, which features two 18-hole mini-golf courses, Splash Mountain and 10 go-kart tracks. Both parks provide a variety of rides and attractions for all adventure lovers.

- Ocean City Parasail: Enjoy a true bird's eye view of Ocean City with a parasailing adventure from Ocean City Parasail. Up to three people at a time can take in the skyline as you float along the clouds. Choose the height you want to soar to and decide if you want a mild or wild ride. You'll head out on a boat to prepare then you can take to the sky for an experience unlike any other. It will certainly be a memory you'll treasure forever!

- Calvin B. Taylor House Museum: Experience a stunning example of local architecture at the Calvin B. Taylor House Museum, a restored early 19th century home located in the National Register Historic District. The house has been furnished as a museum, with the west wing turned into a gallery displaying local memorabilia. It's a budget-friendly outing, with only a suggested donation of $2 per adult.

Dining

- Coconuts Beach Bar & Grill: If you're looking for a fresh seafood feast, head to Coconuts Beach Bar & Grill. Dine on favorites like mahi mahi, tuna and crab cakes, or burgers, chicken and wraps. Enjoy the laid-back atmosphere as you take in the natural scenery. They often have live entertainment, so you can even dance the night away.

- General's Kitchen: Start your day off right with a filling, delicious meal in a fun atmosphere. Whether you love omelets, pancakes or anything in between, the meals here are sure to please. There's even a children's menu for the younger ones.

Events

SunFest is an annual four-day event in mid-September that is meant to bring the summer season to a close in style and welcome the fall season. Head to the Ocean City Inlet at the end of Atlantic Avenue on the boardwalk for plenty of family-friendly fun, including music, food and crafts. Grab tickets to the big-name headline shows before they sell out!

On the flip side, celebrate the winter season with Ocean City’s annual Winter Fest of Lights, held every year from mid-November to January 1. Hop on the Winter Fest Express to pass by fabulous light displays made from hundreds of lights, representing things like Santa’s Workshop, and keep your eyes open for the 50-foot tall Christmas tree. This festival is so popular that it even has its own pavilion - the Winter Fest Pavilion, where you can stop by to enjoy hot chocolate, buy homemade gifts and take photos with Santa.
