As we near the beginning of March, it’s time to quickly turn our attention to spring’s much-anticipated arrival here in Ocean City. Once spring arrives, residents and tourists alike flock to beautiful Ocean City Beach to build sandcastles, swim in the ocean, sunbathe with a good book, and venture into the vast Atlantic for parasailing, jet-skiing, and kayaking adventures. But you’re also encouraged to embark on a relaxing, scenic day-time stroll at one of these nearby parks, all of which are within minutes of Central Reservations’ oceanfront condos in Ocean City MD.
Assateague Island National Seashore
The most popular day-time strolls in the area can be discovered at nearby Assateague Island National Seashore, a beautiful island that features 37 miles of beach, three scenic loops, and two herds of wild horses. The southern portion of Assateague Island actually rests in Virginia. Assateague Island supplies several activity opportunities, including dog walking, sea kayaking, sunbathing, and bicycling. There are three half-mile loops (Dunes, Forest, and Marsh trails) near the Ranger Station. They all offer unique, differing overlooks of the diverse natural landscape. Stroll along the wind-swept, ocean-view dunes, a dense forest filled with local wildlife, and grassy marshes.
If you’re searching for a quick yet scenic stroll with the family or your favorite four-legged friend, we highly recommend Northside Park on the northern edge of town. Northside Park features over a mile of paved trails that weave past a bird-friendly pond, baseball diamonds, and scenic Assawoman Bay. This 58-acre park also has two piers, one of which juts into the middle of Assawoman Bay. Fishing and crab-netting on the dock during high tide is a popular activity amongst locals. Northside Park is particularly beautiful at dusk as the sun sets below Assawoman Bay!
Ocean City Boardwalk
Besides providing eclectic shopping, family-friendly dining, and exciting rides, the Ocean City Boardwalk is also a popular day-time stroll in the heart of the action! The boardwalk is just one mile south of our oceanfront condos in Ocean City MD. The 2.3-mile boardwalk is also the perfect day-time spot for those looking to jog, rollerblade, dog walk, or bike.
