Belmont Towers vacation rentals

A classic Maryland destination

Belmont Towers and Ocean City is a resort area with a small population that swells to hundreds of thousands during the summer months. The Atlantic beaches and sunshine have long been drawing visitors who come to swim in the sea, work on their tan or visit the town's attractions. British colonists settled during the 17th century and it remained a small fishing village until the railroad was built across the Sinepuxent Bay in 1875 after which the town began to boom with tourism. Use your Ocean City vacation rental as a base to explore the sprawling miles of beach.
