    Ocean City's boardwalk empire

    The Ocean City we know today was born in 1902 with the building of its iconic boardwalk, Atlantic Avenue, which instantly transformed it into one of Maryland’s most beloved seaside resorts. This famous stretch has seen many changes since—including being almost completely rebuilt—but the renowned arcades, street performers, and tasty treats that put it on the map are a staple to this day. Bag an Ocean City vacation rental that's close to the action so you can throw yourself into the heart of things and discover the ocean-side charm of this enduring holiday favorite.

    Keep the fun rolling in Ocean City

    There are plenty of ways to explore Ocean City, but rollerblading should be top of your list. As you speed down the boardwalk, wind in your hair, you’ll encounter the irresistible scents of the area’s famed street food, and get to see mimes, magicians, and musicians showcasing their skills. For an even greater adrenaline kick, whizz over to the Ocean City Skate Bowl Park, where rollerbladers and skateboarders can try their hand at the 13,000-foot street course, or on a number of challenges designed to put your abilities to the test.

    Atlantic Avenue—the heart of Ocean City

    Named America’s best boardwalk by The Travel Channel, and number 1 for food by USA Today, Ocean City’s Atlantic Avenue is a thriving hub of activity. A spin on the Ferris wheel opens up sweeping panoramas of sparkling lights and glistening waters, while a ride on an old-timey carousel from 1902 will bring out your inner child. No visit is complete without sampling the delicious delicacies served up by local vendors—savory crab cakes, fresh-baked pizza, and mouthwatering cheeseburgers are among the most popular snacks, while cotton candy, saltwater taffy, and creamy fudge make for an unbeatable dessert.

    Ocean City weather made simple

    The best time to take advantage of beachfront Ocean City vacation rentals is summer, when temperatures are at their peak and the sun casts this oceanfront gem in a spectacular light. It’s also the most popular time to visit the area, so demand and prices may well be a little higher. For a better chance of finding cheap Ocean City vacation rentals, the cooler winter months are the top choice. Average temperatures are in the mid-50s, so getting out and about is still a possibility, and you won’t have to worry about crowds at the main attractions.

    A walk on the wild side near Ocean City

    A 45-minute drive from your Ocean City vacation rental brings you to the celebrated loblolly pines and cypress swamps of Pocomoke River State Park. Visitors here can view white dogwood and pink mountain-laurel trees in the spring, when flowers are coming into bloom, and look for river otters, bald eagles, or any of the 50 species of fish who call the park home. The reserve offers a brilliant opportunity for a family retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the boardwalk, and is a wonderful way to while away the hours in a serene outdoor setting.
