      Ocean City, Maryland is an approximately 10 mile long strip island off of Maryland’s Coast. Ocean City has long been a popular vacation spot for Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Delaware residents. Ocean City is within a few hours drive from both Baltimore and Philadelphia, making it an extremely convenient weekend vacation spot.

      I would describe Ocean City as a young adult oriented city, although there are certainly many attractions for children as well. Ocean City is full of bars. Seacrets is perhaps the best known bar in Ocean City, Maryland. Seacrets is a club that consists of about 18 different bars. There is a nightclub, multiple indoor bars, an outdoor stage, and a bay area where people lay out in the sun on floats while enjoying their drinks.

      There are many other well known bars in Ocean City, Maryland as well. The Green Turtle, which has grown to have many locations throughout the state, was originally opened in Ocean City. M.R. Ducks is another well known Ocean


      City bar, as the shirts with the M.R. Ducks slogan can be seen throughout Maryland and the surrounding states. There are multiple bars overlooking the bay including the aforementioned M.R. Ducks. There are also a number of pool bars in Ocean City that are open during the summer months.

      Ocean City, MD also has a number of great restaurants. When driving down the main strip (Coastal Highway) in the town, one is bombarded on both sides of the road with restaurants. Phillips Seafood Restaurant is perhaps the most popular restaurant chain in Ocean City. Phillips offers both a fine dining atmosphere as well as the ever popular ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT buffet. There is every type of fare you could possibly imagine available in Ocean City from Japanese to Italian to Mexican. Ocean City, MD is certainly a place to visit if you like to try new restaurants.

      There are even more hotels and condiminiums in Ocean City than there are restaurants. Hotels range from old school type motels to the ...


      • elegant and luxurious Hilton. Although deals are easy to find in the winter months, Ocean City hotels are known to charge extremely high prices in season (May through September). For instance, rooms at the Hilton run from about $400-$600 a night in season. Off season, however, one can secure a room at the same hotel for about $100. I would highly recommend looking around for the best deal online if you intend to stay in Ocean City in season, as you will probably be able to save a lot of money.

        Another recommendation that I would make to save money is to plan your vacation either in the spring or the fall. The spring in Ocean City is beautiful, although I would plan to visit in the fall if one wanted to enjoy the beach as it usually stays warm until about mid-October. Also, in September and October the ocean water is actually warmer than it is in the tourist packed months of July and August. By visiting in the

        fall, one also will avoid the absolute tourist frenzy, when driving 10 blocks can take 20 minutes.

        In terms of children, there are certainly attractions that children will enjoy. Jolly Roger Amusement Park and Water Park is located on 33rd Street and can provide an entire day of family fun. There are also two different piers off of the downtown boardwalk where children can enjoy rides. The boardwalk is popular with children simply because there is a lot to look at and many stores that cater to young customers. Although it is probably not necessary to mention, the beautiful beaches can provide hours of entertainment for children!

        Ocean City, Maryland is a beautiful vacation town. I would highly recommend the city for anyone living within a few hours as it can make for an enjoyable weekend vacation. If you are of drinking age, plan to hit Seacrets, as it will be an unforgettable experience. Miles of sandy beaches and a variety of different bars make Ocean City the perfect young adult vacation.
