Accommodation options include hotels, motels, apartments, condominiums and beach houses. ocean city marylandVisitors make their way to the region for a plethora of different reasons, but the principle draw has to be the magnificent seafront.

Ocean City’s most famous attraction is its three mile-long boardwalk, which is commonly regarded as one of the best, if not the best, boardwalk in the entire United States. Severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, much of the boardwalk has been redeveloped in recent years. It continues to house a wide selection of attractions, including amusement arcades, fairground rides, shops, eateries, watering holes and much more.

Visitors looking to delve into the region’s history should visit the likes of the Calvin B. Taylor House Museum, the Rackcliffe Plantation Museum and Costen House, all of which house treasures dating back more than 100 years. The Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum is another popular choice with visitors. ocean city marylandVisitors will find that Ocean City also houses a number of art galleries, including an assortment of quaint local establishments.

From swimming in the ocean and riding horseback along the beach to visiting nature reserves and cycling the coast, there’s plenty to do here while taking in the fresh sea air.
