More interesting location than most

I think your choices around the coast are deserted, tatty and full-on in terms of beaches. There is no quaint hideaway, so you may as well go all in and Ocean City is that.

It's been almost 8 years since my wife and I vacationed in Ocean City. In years past we have camped at Assateague Island, stayed in a family condo inland, and this year we opted for a suite on Coastal Highway, with a few block walk from the beach, just north of the boardwalk. Every vacation has been filled with fun,... More

OK, I'll admit that my family usually travels to faraway beaches with no one on them, but the OC beaches are extremely crowded in mid-summer, especially the beaches near the boardwalks. The boardwalk beaches suffer from serous erosion providing very little real estate for the masses. Expect your umbrella to be touching those of your neighbors. Beaches down on the... More

Honestly the workers in stores on board walk, and all the restaurants ruined the experience. They are all very rude and get angry with you that you speak english.

We stayed at the ocean front Holiday Inn, which is right on the boardwalk in mid May this year. Nice beach to walk on, also very nice boardwalk. So much to do, so little time!

I went to the beach 4 times during my stay in OCMD. My 3 year old daughter and 1 year old daughter loved the clean sand and warm ocean waves. The water temperature was 77 degrees which was quite refreshing for the 85-90 degree days we had all week. There were others near us but we were not at all... More

Great beach and very clean. It is now non smoking but we did have issues with one group smoking near us. Since we have an asthmatic in our family no smoking is important to us. Luckily the family member was able to not be in the line of smoke.

Love the beach. It is very clean and a family friendly environment. It gets crowded so would recommend an early trip to get there
