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.
