Great Times are Here!

Single? Grab a friend and go hit the clubs, the beach the boardwalk.
Couple? Romantic packages abound, quiet resturants, bike together, swim, hot tub, jet ski it is endless.
Family? Your kids will never want to let you go any place else. Rides, shops, board walk with tram, bike rentals, arcades, shop till you drop baby!

Teen agers love it too!

Ocean City was voted 'An All-American City' Award in 2001. Even though they have achieved this coveted award, there are lots of "Under 21 Clubs", so watch the kids. Renting bikes and parking the car is the way to go. If you like condos, this is your town. Motels and Hotels abound also. If you like beach houses, you have to head north. Not much in big beach houses here. Board walk, and Rides. Beach, Fishing, Ocean and Bay. Some of the best seafood you will ever eat. We live 2 hours away and go four or five times a year.

If you are used to crystal clear water, better go to the caribbean. You can almost never see your feet in this water, but if you are hardy, it is very refreshing.

    The red eyed frog has to be the most pleasant place to eat on an afternoon at the beach. we sat at the bar and ate while we looked at the island across the water. BEST burgers around. not for more than about four in a group at a time it is a small place.

    We loved your comments about OC Md. Sadly though OC is changing from they way you describe it & the way we've loved it all these years. Even the wonderful Santa Maria Motel you mentioned is being torn down this very week. We'll miss staying there so much!

    What a great page. It brings back so many memories of so many vacations in OC. But you forgot Dumsers Dairy Land. I loved their milkshakes. : )
