Ocean City, Maryland is a great family beach town and the perfect place for a summer vacation. Rental condos, townhouses, and houses are all available to make you stay comfortable and fun. Many properties include facilities and amenities such as pools, cable television, outdoor barbeque grills, and air conditioning for your added comfort and enjoyment.
Ocean City beaches stretch along the Atlantic Ocean from the Inlet all the way to the Delaware state line. Beach-goers can enjoy the sun and fun of the beach along with many other beach activities. Sea shell collecting, kite flying, volleyball tournaments, and sand sculpting are a few of the activities that people participate in. A good section of the beach is located right against the boardwalk, so food, games, and other attractions are readily available. Jet-skiing and other water sports also take place at the Ocean City beaches, both in the Ocean and on the Bay. Whether you want to just relax with a book in the sun or participate in one of the many activities, there is always something going on at the beach.
While some may prefer to snack the day away on boardwalk fare, others choose fine dining in the evenings. An abundance of local seafood is available at many fine restaurants in the area. Restaurants such as BJs on the Water and Phillips Seafood are classics in Ocean City. They serve locally caught crabs along with other local seafood specialties. Some may prefer the Italian dishes of Mario’s or barbequed ribs from Nick’s Original House of Ribs. Many restaurants are child-friendly though a few, especially those that are associated with bars, are not. Whatever you are looking for, Ocean City has a myriad of choices to suit your tastes

The many stores in both centers provide a variety of items so everyone is sure to find something.
