This year has already given you many reasons to be thankful—how about adding one more? Spend Thanksgiving—or Friendsgiving—in Ocean City, Maryland, and start building memories and traditions in a beloved coastal town.
The fall activities in Ocean City, MD, don’t slow down, but you’ll be able to enjoy them with less of a crowd. Whether it’s strolls on the Boardwalk, the cooler air, crabbing and fishing in gorgeous national parks, the serenity of nearby Assateague Island or just kicking back with a local craft beer, fall activities abound. Also, after October 1, dogs are allowed to traipse the Boardwalk and the beach, so you really can bring the whole family.
The event season is also still in full swing in late fall. Festival favorite Winterfest of Lights opens on November 21 with one million holiday lights and hundreds of animated light displays throughout Northside Park. Also a few days before Thanksgiving, on November 23, Light Up Downtown Winter Festival opens with holiday shopping, vendors, live music, games and prizes. On the big day, give yourself all the excuses to eat extra pumpkin pie by getting your jog on in the 12th Annual Fast and Furriest 5K Turkey Trot. Not looking to cook your turkey? Many popular restaurants offer Thanksgiving buffets and seasonal menus so you can enjoy the meal without the mess.
