Activities for infant/toddler near Ocean City?

Hi

We will be going to Ocean City, MD for a week in August. We have a young child and we wanted to find out if there were any small zoos, children's amusement parks, or other activities in the area. (We'll drive up to an hour). Thanks!

if the kid is too young to remember the zoo, then just stay at the beach and make sand castles. kid doesn't need any other entertainment. please take no offense as I mean this literally. Go fly a kite!!

Trimper's on the boardwalk hs indoor rides that are geared for little ones old enough to ride by themselves, but not fast or anything.

Trimpers is a great place for little ones and I've read this in the past and I think its a great idea for kids. Get a small blow up pool and take it to the beach with you so your child can play in. It's safer and the the little one will enjoy it.

The indoor Trimper's rides on the boardwalk, between S. Division and S. 1st Streets ... there are about ten rides geared for kids as young as 1 or 2, and maybe a couple an infant could ride with parent (e.g., carousel).

Close by are two large arcades, Sportland and Playland (we prefer Sportland cuz Playland is darker inside and we think the games/prizes ratio works better). Just walk an infant around inside and enjoy their amazement at all the lights and sounds.
