Fourth of July

Top 4 Reasons to Celebrate July 4th at the Beach

Red, White & You | July 4th in Ocean City, MD

What could be more all-American than spending July 4th at the beach in Ocean City, MD? Recently named one of the Top 10 Travelers’ Choice Beaches in the U.S. by TripAdvisor (the only one on the list not in Florida or Hawaii), Ocean City is known for its clean beach, family-friendly atmosphere, and multitude of activities and events. Read on to find out why you need to spend your holiday here:

  1. Freedom

    Celebrate your freedom in the place that makes you feel free! There’s nothing like having the sun on your face and sand between your toes to help you appreciate the freedom we have here in the U.S.A.  Enjoy a moment of solitude as you listen to the waves and remember those who have fought for our freedom and continue to defend it today.

  2. Fireworks

    Bring a chair or a blanket and you’ve got the best seat in the house for fireworks in Ocean City, MD. Fireworks displays will be held at several locations around town on July 4th. Visitors staying in the downtown area will be dazzled all along the Boardwalk as fireworks light up the night in the area of North Division Street at 9:30 p.m. If you’re staying in North Ocean City, then Northside Park (126th St.) is the place to be. This scenic 58-acre recreation area has plenty of grassy areas to view fireworks over the bay. In mid-town Ocean City, Seacrets will have its own fireworks display at approximately 9 p.m. Relax in the sand with a drink in your hand as live music plays across multiple stages and fireworks are shot from a barge on the bay. Guests staying in Ocean Pines can also watch fireworks on July 3rd at 9:15 p.m. at nearby Berlin Falls Park in quaint Berlin, MD. This classic event also features activities and vendors across the street at the Burley Oak Brewing Company.

  3. Festivities

    The Ocean City area keeps the party going all day long with fun entertainment and activities. Start the day at 8 a.m. in Ocean Pines at the Freedom 5K, a family-friendly race around Veterans Memorial Park to benefit “Athletes Serving Athletes.” After the race, participants can stay for the Ocean Pines July 4th Celebration from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with waterslides, carnival games, and concessions. Assateague Island State Park will join in the fun with a 4th of July Bike Parade from the Ranger Station to the Nature Center, followed hot dogs and prizes for the best bike decorations (call 410-641-2918 for info). Finally, guests can finish the day with free live entertainment taking place prior to the Ocean City fireworks displays at 8:00 p.m. The Northside Park celebration will feature “Mike Hines and The Look” (high energy pop, hip hop, R & B, Motown and more), while the downtown celebration on N. Division St. will feature “Triple Rail Turn” (modern country).

  4. Food

    What’s a birthday party without the food? Ocean City offers ten miles of restaurants, from fine dining to casual cuisine. For some fresh Eastern Shore crabs, stop by Hooper’s Crab House in West Ocean City for a classic crab-picking experience or a bushel of crabs to eat at home. If you’re looking for a fun and family-friendly island atmosphere, check out Fishtales in the downtown area of Ocean City (21st St. and the bay) for delicious appetizers, entrees and drinks. At 1:00 p.m., Fishtales will also host contestants competing for $1,500 and the title of “Top Dog” at their annual Hot Dog eating contest. When it comes to nightlife, check out Macky’s Bayside Bar & Grill’s Red-White-Blue themed party at 10:00 p.m. on 54th St.

Gateway Grand 207

Our Top Vacation Rentals with a View

Ahhh… Vacation Rentals with a View

Whether it’s the sun rising over the ocean or setting over the bay, nothing says ‘vacation’ like a breathtaking view. Scenic views provide relaxation, natural beauty – and best of all – a fresh perspective. In a matter of moments, the stresses of work disappear, the busy pace of life slows down, and your world realigns. We think a view is even better when you can wake up and enjoy it right from your private vacation rental. Thanks to Ocean City’s skinny shape and unique positioning between the ocean and the bay, many of the vacation rentals around town are in close proximity to water and offer fantastic views. Just drop your bags and worries at the door and step outside onto the balcony – you are on vacation!

Ocean or Bay? Yes, Please!

From the Ocean City Boardwalk area to the Delaware beaches, Vantage Resort Realty offers a huge variety of homes along the ocean and bay that feature amazing views. For a panoramic view of the ocean, check out our oceanfront rentals at Gateway Grand or various buildings in North Ocean City’s “high-rise row” such as Braemar Towers, Century I, Sea Watch, Fountainhead Towers, Carousel, and High Point North. Not only do these rentals provide beautiful views, but they are located in family-friendly parts of town that are known for having some of the best amenities. If a sunset over the bay is what you’re dreaming of, there is also a wide variety of bayfront rentals where you can relax with a drink as the sun goes down. Some of our favorite bayfront communities are Sunset Island, Bahia Vista, Oasis on the Bay, Makai, and Sunset Beach – all of which are located in mid-town Ocean City near popular restaurants and nightlife. Or if you just can’t decide between the ocean or bay, we have vacation rentals with views of BOTH! Check out our luxurious properties in The Meridian, many of which offer beach-to-bay views for the best of both worlds.

Sunset Beach

Life’s Better on the Bay | Ocean City, MD

The Bay – Ocean City’s Quieter Side

Many people love Ocean City for its beautiful beaches, exciting Boardwalk, and vibrant atmosphere. But, many also love Ocean City for its quieter side on the bay, where visitors can slow down and escape the hustle and bustle. This beautiful bay, separating the town from the mainland, has long been a source of tranquility and recreation for both visitors and locals alike. Stretching about ten miles from Fenwick Island, Delaware down to the Ocean City Inlet, the bay ranges from about a quarter-mile to two miles in width offering a safe haven for boaters, water sports, fishing enthusiasts, and nature lovers. Whether you like to watch boats and waterfowl from the comfort of your balcony or jump on a water taxi to explore bayfront bars and restaurants, the bay is Ocean City’s unsung hero and is the perfect spot for your next vacation.

The Best of Both Worlds

One of the best parts about vacationing along the bay is that you can enjoy a quiet, waterfront setting, but still have all of Ocean City’s fun and excitement right at your fingertips. Thanks to Ocean City’s long and skinny shape, even bayfront and bayside properties are still only a short walk from the beach and popular attractions, allowing for easy access and a hassle-free experience. Downtown properties along the bay are within walking distance of the Boardwalk where you can spend time browsing shops, riding on amusement rides, and checking out hundreds of events throughout the year. Mid-town properties have the benefit of dozens of fantastic restaurants and nightlife that will tempt your taste buds and help you unwind. Uptown properties are close to the beautiful Northside Park, a lovely bayfront area with walking paths, playground, sports fields, a picnic pavilion, and a long fishing and crabbing pier.

Life is Short. Watch More Sunsets!
