About Ocean City

When you’re looking for an East Coast beach vacation not far from hubs like Washington, D.C. or Philadelphia, Ocean City, Maryland is the perfect pick. With a famous boardwalk, sandy beaches, and no shortage of fun, Ocean City is a great family destination.

A Short History of Ocean City

Ocean City has been a vacation hotspot since the late 19th century, when the first beachfront guesthouse and first big hotel were built here. Back then, most visitors relaxed by the shore, fished, and enjoyed the Atlantic surf. The opening of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in the 1950s opened up the area to many more vacationers, and increased demand and development quickly made Ocean City the vibrant, colorful spot that it is today.

What Ocean City Does Best

Ocean City is the quintessential summer destination, and the action centers on its famous boardwalk. Ride the Ferris wheel, indulge in cotton candy, and enjoy a leisurely stroll along this legendary seaside walkway. When you're ready for some offshore action, hit the beach or book a watersports excursion.

Have a Grand Time on the Boardwalk

No beach town is complete without a great boardwalk, and the Ocean City Boardwalk is one of the best. It dates back to the 19th century, when Trimper’s Rides and Amusements first opened on the southern end. Today, you’ll find over 100 rides, including bumper boats for little ones and big kid rides like Freakout. There’s also plenty of junk food, souvenir shops, and attractions like Ripley’s Believe It or Not! along this three-mile stretch.

Catch Some Crabs

One of Maryland’s favorite kinds of seafood, the crabs are famous here. You can catch your own here with a fishing line and a little practice, and you don’t even need a license to catch a bushel of adult male crabs. If you’d rather just enjoy some freshly prepared, you’ll find Maryland blue crabs and crab cakes on most menus in Ocean City.

Cool Off With a Water Adventure

Whether you’re an extreme sports fan or want to explore the waters around Ocean City, you’ll find several activities here. Rent a jet ski to explore offshore, go parasailing to get a view from above, or go extreme with a kiteboarding excursion. Take in the natural beauty of Assateague Island, just a few miles from Ocean City, with an eco tour and a kayak trip.
