Founded as a small fishing village, Ocean City, Maryland, has grown to become an East Coast favorite vacation and ride destination. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Isle of Wight Bay, Ocean City features ten miles of pristine, free beaches and a famous wooden boardwalk lined with restaurants, shops and hotels. At the boardwalk’s southern end, Trimper’s Rides and Amusements continues to thrill visitors as it has done since 1893! As a historical landmark, the Ocean City boardwalk has been consistently rated as one of the “best boardwalks for food” by USA Today, and was rated one of the Top Ten Boardwalks to Visit in the U.S. by National Geographic. TripAdvisor named Ocean City in the Top 10 Best Beaches according to its travelers!
From luxury hotels and quaint bed-and-breakfasts to campgrounds and comfortable mom-and-pop motels, Ocean City has the right accommodations to fit your budget. And let’s not forget that there are plenty of fun things to do, too! Maryland's famous blue crabs can be caught from a number of bayside fishing piers, and the bays west of the island offer sailing, boating, fishing, jet skiing, parasailing, kayaking and paddleboarding.
Ocean City, Maryland, is also a gourmand’s paradise. From restaurants featuring farm-to-table and dock-to-plate specialties to a smorgasbord of all-you-can-eat buffets, fast-food eateries and carryout establishments, Ocean City has it all. And did I mention caramel popcorn, funnel cakes and the famous Thrasher’s French fries? With so many options, you’ll never leave Ocean City hungry.
