    Unleash your inner child at Maryland's biggest playground

    On a barrier island jutting into the Atlantic Ocean just south of the Delaware/Maryland border, lively Ocean City is one of the eastern seaboard's top beach destinations, attracting more than eight million visitors every year. With miles and miles of white sand beaches, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more relaxing getaway than an Ocean City vacation rental. The crown jewel of it all is the vibrant boardwalk, full of amusement rides, entertainment, and all the dining you could ever want. Come on down and have some good old-fashioned fun!

    Under the boardwalk, we'll be having some fun

    It's no surprise that the ocean rules in a place called Ocean City. The Atlantic waves are great for surfing, or you can explore the bay in a kayak, canoe, or jet ski. The tour options are endless, from dolphin-spotting pleasure cruises on the water, to small plane and helicopter tours if you'd prefer to take it all in from above. Back on solid ground, there's horseback riding along the beach, or you can just kick back, work on your tan, and catch a beautiful sunrise. There are plenty of spas around if you're looking to really indulge.

    Discover three miles of fun in Ocean City

    The only thing more popular in Ocean City than the beach is the acclaimed Ocean City boardwalk, full of attractions, shops, and plenty of food (don't forget to try the famous Maryland crab). There are two amusement parks to choose from at an Ocean City vacation rental—Jolly Roger Amusement Park and Trimper's Rides, first opened in 1893. Along the planks you'll also find historic sights like the landmark Atlantic Hotel, dating from 1926, the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum, set in an 1891 life-saving station, and the anchor from the famous Sailboat Wreck of 1870.

    Oh, when the sun beats down and burns the tar up on the roof

    Summer is prime time for Ocean City vacation rentals, thanks to warm temperatures that make for perfect beach-going weather. You'll see hIghs in the 80s or 90s between June and September, when skies are mostly clear and sunny (minus the occasional passing thunderstorm). Winters are cold, with temps consistently below freezing from December through February. That's also when you'll see the most snow, though the white stuff is possible any time from November to April. There's always a potential for hurricanes, particularly in September and October, but typically Ocean City just gets the rains without the serious storms.

    Let the pounding of the surf soothe your soul

    Set on a thin barrier island in the Atlantic Ocean, officially called Fenwick Island, you'll never be far from the ocean in Ocean City. Sandy white stretches of beach line the island from bottom to top, continuing into Delaware a few miles to the north. The sunrises can be magical and the waves are surf-worthy (just keep your eye out for possible shark encounters). On the west side, you'll find plenty more marine life in Isle of Wight and Assateague Bays, which separate Ocean City from the mainland.
