Ocean City Beach

in Ocean City Maryland

Famous for its historic boardwalk (built in 1902), Ocean City Beach is convenient to fun amenities like an amusement park with its own Ferris wheel overlooking the ocean, rows of gift shops and restaurants, arcades and hotels. The family-friendly beach stretches for 10 miles and is patrolled by lifeguards. Spend the day building sand castles or lounging on the sun-kissed beach before heading to the boardwalk for fresh oysters or crab cakes. As night falls, the boardwalk comes alive with lively bars, concerts, and dancing—fun for travelers sans children this trip around. And unlike some of Maryland's neighbors, the beaches in Ocean City are always free.
