Say “I Do” at Some of the Best Ocean City, MD, Wedding Venues

The Beach

When you picture your ideal wedding, does it involve gorgeous, coastal views? An Ocean City beach wedding might be perfect for you! You can set up on the public beach for a beautiful yet still affordable option. Or, consider renting space on a private beach for the same stunning scenery without as many crowds or distractions. Either way, it’s going to be a remarkable day. Check out Rox Beach Weddings for planning help and browse their convenient packages!

The Love Boat

Beach weddings are always an excellent and unique way to promise your love for one another. However, if you’d like to take it one step further and depart from the mainland, you’re welcome to enjoy a wedding cruise with Barefoot Beach Bride. Their Love Boat Sail Package includes a scenic boat ride, a photographer, a non-denominational officiant, and more with room for up to six guests. It’s a fantastic option for smaller weddings that you’ll all remember for years to come.

Harrison’s Harborwatch

If you’ve ever made reservations for dinner at Harrison’s Harborwatch, you know their food is excellent. Did you know they also host weddings, as well? Their venue comes with breathtaking views of the ocean, the bay, and even Assateague Island. Plus, you know you’re going to get delicious and convenient catering options since it’s a local, Ocean City restaurant!

Seacrets

Would you like to tie the knot in Jamaica, but the logistics of it all wouldn’t quite work? Don’t worry. You can always have a wedding celebration at Seacrets, also known as Jamaica, USA! This location is ideal for couples that are looking for a fun, casual, event with those laid-back Caribbean vibes. There are both outdoor and indoor spaces to choose from, and you can have your wedding here at any time of year! Of course, Seacrets is known for providing plenty of excitement, so this local hotspot is ideal for your bachelor and bachelorette parties, too!

Roland E. Powell Convention Center

If you’ve ever attended one of the incredible, year-round events here, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with the Roland E. Powell Convention Center in the Mid-Town section of Ocean City, MD. It’s not only for huge conventions and events. It’s also great for weddings in Ocean City! This large building has plenty of space for guests with several meeting rooms, an outdoor terrace, and even a ballroom on the bayfront. Make sure you put it on your list of options to consider!

Planning Tips:

  • Plan well in advance.
  • If you’d like an outdoor wedding in the summer, consider a sunrise or sunset wedding because of the heat.
  • Try not to overlap your wedding day with a local event due to the potential crowds.
  • Remember to apply for a local marriage license with the Worcester County Circuit Court.
  • Ocean City doesn’t have a Justice of the Peace, so remember to get an officiant.
  • Attend the annual Ocean City Bridal Show for ideas prior to your wedding.

If you’re looking for ways to celebrate the luck of the Irish with your friends and family, Ocean City has something everyone will love.

In fact, there are so many OC St. Patty’s Day events, you simply won’t be able to do them all. So we’re making it easier to plan with a map to the pot o’ gold – that is, some of the most popular events in town.

40th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival | Saturday, March 16

Show your Irish pride (no matter where you’re from) and get your fix of green floats, shamrocks and outfits at the 40th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival. Even the dogs who attend wear green! Be one of the thousands of people who line up along Coastal Highway to watch 100 entries from three states strut their stuff.

This is the place to be to enjoy traditional Irish marching bands and music, cheer for the most spirited floats and catch a glimpse of local Ocean City, MD, celebrities. See who the judges loved after the parade, where awards will be given out for Best Marching Band, Best Motorized Unit, Best Commercial Float and other categories.

The parade is just the beginning. The festival continues throughout the day with live music, dancing, Irish-inspired food and drinks. Treat your family to face painting and games; treat yourself to a raffle and a pint of Guinness.

St. Patrick’s Day Boardwalk 5K | Saturday, March 16 – 9:00 a.m.

St. Patrick's Day mascot

An Ocean City, MD, tradition returns with the 2019 St. Patrick’s Day Boardwalk 5K. Runners of all skill levels will start on the boardwalk, take a scenic route toward the inlet and down around the pier. Since it wouldn’t quite be a St. Patrick’s Day race without an Irish pub to mark the finish line, racers wind up at Shenanigan’s Irish Pub & Grille with a free Guinness drink ticket – and possibly an awards ribbon – in hand.

Prefer to relax instead of run? The post-race shindig at Shenanigans is part of their weekend fondly known as Paddy Bash. Savor all the corned beef and cabbage you could want, along with festive drink specials and music by James Gallagher & Off the Boat, plus featured guest bands.

Pubs and grub

There are plenty of Irish pubs, bars and restaurants in Ocean City getting in on the St. Patrick’s Day action.

HarBAR crawl begins after Saturday’s parade at 2:00 p.m. and has a shuttle running between locations for maximum party efficiency. You’ll hit Ocean City hotspots like Mad Fish Bar & Grill, Micky Fins Bar & Grill, Crab Alley and Harborside Bar & Grill, all featuring DJs, live music games and more. Planning on visiting all four locations? There’s a special prize just for you! When you’re finally ready to head home, you can get a $5 Uber voucher.

Other locals’ favorites with big St. Patrick’s Day weekend party plans, live entertainment and specials include Seacrets, Pickles Pub, Harpoon Hanna’s, Cowboy Coast, Skye Bar and Dry Dock.

Here’s one to add to your itinerary: There’s a brand-new Irish establishment opening its doors for the first time on Friday, March 15. It’s Wicomico Street’s newest party bar, The Lucky Anchor. Be there for the official grand opening party on Saturday after the St. Patrick’s Day with the legendary DJ Batman.

Welcome to Ocean City Water Tower

Which Ocean City Neighborhood Are You?

Thrasher’s French Fries on the Boardwalk

From the beach to the bay to the Boardwalk and beyond, Ocean City, MD, offers countless activities and attractions that appeal to a range of ages, tastes and lifestyles. Does your ideal day come with some Thrasher’s French Fries, a ride on the go-carts and shopping for a t-shirt or two? Or would you rather play a round of golf and grab some local seafood while watching the sunset? Vacationers come to Ocean City year after year because there’s something for everyone.

And since every neighborhood has a distinct feel, your experience depends largely on where you stay: Boardwalk/Downtown, Mid-Town or North Ocean City. Before you book your Ocean City rental, decide which location offers exactly what you’re looking for in a vacation.

Get Lost in the Excitement Near the Ocean City Boardwalk/Downtown (Inlet – 30th Street)

Ocean City was a sleepy fishing village until the Bay Bridge brought an influx of vacationers in the 1950s. Ocean City Downtown has retained a lot of the “old Ocean City” character, with ornate Victorian homes, plus charming restaurants and shops. Ocean City’s iconic Boardwalk, built in 1902, stretches from the inlet north to 27th Street, lined with many tourist attractions like souvenir shops, games, tasty treats and Trimper’s rides. Visitors who love Maryland Boardwalk condo rentals enjoy being in the middle of the hustle and bustle.

Belmont Towers 601 Balcony
Belmont Towers 601 on the Boardwalk

Note: The Ocean City Boardwalk draws crowds, so parking can be difficult—especially during large events like Sunfest or Cruisin’ OC. For a more convenient way to get around, take the Ocean City Beach Bus, which you can ride all day for $3. The system accepts EMoney, and you can keep track of arrivals with a handy app. The Boardwalk Tram is another option, although prices vary.

Some of Vantage’s popular vacation rentals in the Downtown area include properties in:

Harbor Breeze is another popular destination right in the action of the Ocean City Boardwalk—perfectly suited for a getaway with a group of friends.

Meet in the Middle at Mid-Town (31st – 93rd Street)

Outdoor dining area at Fager’s Island

Mid-Town Ocean City offers the best of both worlds: It’s an ideal option if you want to be close to the excitement of the Boardwalk but also just secluded enough to be on the quieter side.

Mid-Town’s character changes as you head further north, starting with smaller homes and progressing to more high rises. No matter what you’re looking for—mini-golf, a frozen drink, a water park, suntan lotion—you’ll probably find it within a five-minute walk of where you’re staying in Mid-Town. You can even catch a concert at the new Ocean City Performing Arts Center.

And whether you’re up for a romantic night out or a meal for the whole family, Midtown has plenty of options, including Seacrets, Macky’s Bayside Bar & Grill, Fager’s Island and Dead Freddies Island Grill. You can always grab some carryout and enjoy your vacation rental amenities, like pools and private balconies.

A few of our breezy beach getaways in the Mid-Town area include properties at:

Outdoor pool at Gateway Grand resort

Indulge in Privacy in North Ocean City (94th – 145th Street)

North Ocean City is made for guests who want a little peace and quiet—but no shortage of fun activities. Some high rises dot the North Ocean City seascape, but many properties are on the smaller side. North Ocean City condo rentals are a popular pick for families.

Northside Park in North Ocean City

Northside Park between 125th and 130th Streets is home to a 58-acre public recreation area with sports fields, playgrounds and an indoor facility with a gym—the only establishment of its kind in the area. Head to any of Northern Ocean City’s parks for a morning jog or a picnic with family. If rain moves in, you can grab tickets to a movie at Sun & Surf Cinema.

Of course, since you’re a few miles away from the Boardwalk, it’s quiet enough to relax on your balcony with a book or cool off in your homey, open floor plan condominium. You’re certain to enjoy more privacy—even in oceanfront condos—whether you’re on the beach or going for a stroll. Delaware beaches and the DiscoverSea Shipwreck Museum are close, with Fenwick Island just across the border.

Evening on the harbor in West Ocean City

Once empty farmland, West Ocean City now thrives with new real estate and growing businesses. It’s located across the bay from the Boardwalk, with recreational opportunities abound—golfing, yachting, boating, you name it. Groups of all sizes who stay near Ocean City Bayside rent jet skis or kayaks and have fun on the water, or go crabbing and feel the rush of bringing in dinner.

The nearby Tanger Outlets are a popular shopping destination, and there’s a local market where you can grab some fresh seafood to prepare in your vacation rental kitchen.

Lastly, Ocean Pines is a residential community on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, with 3,000 acres of wooded areas and nine miles of waterfront property.

Summer better than others. Sure, it’s great to be surrounded by powdery sand and ocean breezes, but granite countertops, wet bars and redwood saunas are nice, too. Luxury vacation rentals on the Eastern Shore are more in-demand than ever as the perfect backdrop for family memories, special experiences, and complete relaxation. It used to be that a luxury vacation experience could only be found in a hotel or an all-inclusive resort. But with the rise of extended family and multi-family vacations, guests are seeking out larger upscale spaces that can accommodate their whole group in style.

In fact, the Baltimore Sun recently did a story on luxury vacation rentals at the beach (“High-end rental homes in Ocean City, Rehoboth Beach offer luxury on vacation“) that featured one of Vantage Vacation Rentals’ top rentals called the Dream Palace.  It’s not hard to see why everyone’s buzzing about this one-of-a-kind, 4-bedroom oceanfront home.  Remodeled from top to bottom, this property boasts custom design features and high-end amenities such as exposed beams, 20-ft. ceiling, bamboo flooring, wine cooler, ultra modern appliances, gorgeous tile work, gas grill, and rooftop deck with unbeatable ocean views.  As high-tech as it is beautiful, this home even has a projection TV that drops down from the ceiling for the perfect family movie night.  Read what a recent Dream Palace guest wrote about their experience.
