Top Things to do on a Vacation in OCMD

Shorten Your Travel Time

One of the best things about visiting Ocean City, MD in the Summer is the convenient location. Our beloved beach town is less than three hours from Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, DC. Whether you’re visiting for a weekend getaway or a week-long vacation, you can fit in fun activities and delicious eats.

Attend an Event

Starting in May, the annual event, Springfest, kicks off the summer season in OCMD! Celebrating its 32nd Anniversary, at the inlet lot at the south end of Ocean City’s boardwalk, you’ll find food, live entertainment, and unique arts and crafts. The whole family will love Springfest in Ocean City, MD, because there’s something for everyone.

Head to The Beach

We can all agree that the sound of waves and the warmth of the sun are incredibly relaxing. With almost 10 miles of beach, OCMD is the place to decompress and unwind. Hang out at the beach and relax in your beach chair with a good book. Some days you can watch the surfers and might even be lucky to see porpoises swimming.

Take a Walk on the Historic Boardwalk

The historic boardwalk in Ocean City, MD, is a must. If you’re an early riser, start at either end of the boardwalk, go for a walk or run, and soak up the fresh, salty ocean air.

Grab Thrasher’s fries and caramel popcorn from Dolle’s for an afternoon snack after a morning of swimming in the ocean. Shop for souvenirs or admire the view from the inlet and watch the fishing boats come and go.

Plan a Fun Day of Activities

Indoor and outdoor mini-golf courses are located every few blocks in Ocean City, MD, and are so much fun for kids and adults. On a rainy day, you can head to the movies, museums like Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, or an arcade like Marty’s Playland or Alley Oops.
