We live 10 min from Ocean City MD and 15 min from Assateague Island. But we prefer AI hands down!! It is much more private and less people. We have OSV pass so we can drive right onto the beach which is super nice since we can pile all our beach gear, surf rods, grill, food, and towels into it and not have to worry about carrying stuff from a parking lot to the beach. The park also has a lot of free programs for all ages to learn about animals, hiking, beach, etc. Must do if you are visiting the area and have kids.
