Ocean City Maryland rentals are certainly hot Internet real estate properties–our search results showed that users pulled up the term a lot in recent months. But how many of you are actually booking vacation homes?
The building pictured–which houses a three-bedroom, three-bath new construction condo for $1,275-$1,775 a week, a discount of $500 a week–is one of many vacation condos in this family-friendly town by the seashore, also dubbed the O.C. VacationHomeRentals.com currently lists 33 homes for rent, as travelers’ demand for modest, low-key beach living hits its peak during this time of year.
Ocean City appeals to folks on many levels: its nearness to Rehoboth Beach, its lively three-mile boardwalk stocked with arcades, rides, musicians, restaurants (Don’t miss out on Fisher’s popcorn, Kohr’s Brothers silky frozen custard and the hunky crabs that are legendary in these parts.) and a concrete path ideal for rollerblading and biking. Skateboarders should leave their gear at home because boards are not allowed on the boardwalk, sorry.
Moms and dads, when the kids could use a break from the funnel cake, take them to the Fenwick Island lighthouse for that ever-important scrapbook photo or Assateague Island to catch a glimpse of the wild ponies. Yes, wild ponies running free.
And that piece of trivia makes it even cooler than the “real O.C.” So take that, Lauren Conrad.
