We love the beach and good seafood - Ocean City has this to offer however it's hard to enjoy it in the summer with the traffic, lack of parking, and lack of upscale restaurants and hotels. Next time we'll hang out on the boardwalk more.

Cold breeze coming off the beach. Who doesn't like the beach. We stopped at a few shops and a few bars along the way on the boardwalk

It would be nice to lay on the beach and relax without college kids with cameras bugging you to take pictures, then they want to do a big photo shoot on the beach. And even after you say no, they continue to stand there blocking the sun trying to talk you into it. And if you still say no, they... More

Ocean City beaches are to me the same in comparison to others when speaking of "Just the Beach"! There are cabanas, umbrellas & chairs to rent etc or you can bring your own! We have been to many beaches on vacation & in comparison I will say this, the Most Important factor to me is Safety & OC By Far... More

I just love Ocean City beaches. There a lifeguards on every block during the high season. The sand is white and clean. It was rated in the top 25 beaches on Trip Advisor and probably deserves to be higher!

I love the beach at Ocean City. It isn't the Dominica Republic, but it is Maryland's piece of paradise.

Ocean City, Maryland, has one of the nicest beaches on the east coast. We normally go there off season so don't fight the big crowds. The beach is very well tended and clean and the sound of the waves coming ashore and wonderful breezes that are common are soooooo soothing and walks up and down the boardwalk are pleasant, even...

Ocean City Beach is the best. The beach and water are clean. Ocean City has a crew that cleans the beach every night during the peak time and life guards are on duty to watch the water. During the off season, surfers enjoy the water and spectators enjoy watching the surfers catch a big one! The beach unlike many other... More

It gets hot (not the water, it's the gulf stream sneaks away in NC) and it is sandy. In the summer it is really crowded. There are many things to see and do on the boardwalk but don't forget your Trasher's French Fries.
