The Ultimate Guide to the Ocean City Boardwalk

Take a Journey in Time

Did you know that the Ocean City boardwalk dates back to 1902? It all started over 100 years ago when hotels wanted to make it easier for guests to explore the shore. What began as a temporary installment eventually became a permanent structure in 1910. A storm devastated the boardwalk in 1962, but it wasn’t long before it was back and better than ever. Today, it runs from inlet north to 27th Street, providing endless excitement and beautiful oceanfront views.

Join the Fun

Fun on an Ocean City boardwalk carousel

Ask ten people about their favorite activities on the boardwalk, and you’ll get ten different answers. There’s just so much to love! Search for treasures at souvenir shops, test your skills at carnival games, and go for a spin on a variety of amusement park rides. Or, grab a seat on a bench and relax among the warm sunshine and cool sea breezes. You might even see some talented street performers! Here are a few popular attractions that might become your new favorites:

Treat Your Taste Buds

When hunger strikes on the boardwalk, you’re always a short walk away from delicious food. Grab a meal at one of the local restaurants or satisfy your sweet tooth with treats like funnel cake, ice cream, and caramel popcorn. Just don’t forget to try some of Thrasher’s famous french fries! Let the enticing aromas lead the way to these fantastic eateries:

Attend Must-See Events

Stay on the lookout for several free events in the summer months, like live music, laser light shows, and fireworks, too!

Visitor Tips

Navigate the boardwalk like a pro with our local tips! Here’s what you should know before you go:

  • Ocean City Boardwalk parking is limited, especially in the summertime. Luckily, you can take advantage of the Ocean City Beach Bus or the Boardwalk Tram.
  • Or, rent a bicycle from Dandy Don’s and pedal your way to your favorite attractions!
  • Pets are welcome on the boardwalk from October 1st to April 30th.
  • Hours vary between businesses. Visit their websites for the most up-to-date information.
  • Get a sneak peek at the excitement before you arrive via the Ocean City Boardwalk Cam!

Here’s an idea even your accountant would approve of: trade your primary residence for a sandcastle, and put the stress of tax time behind you with an oceanfront vacation.

Nothing is more relaxing than ocean waves and salt air, and we have great oceanfront properties that are a perfect way to reward yourself for getting your taxes done. (And if you’ve already received your refund, this is a great way to treat yourself.)

Bring that special someone, or invite all of your little deductions to come along. You’ll find a wide variety of vacation choices throughout Ocean City, and we promise you won’t have to fill out any forms.

So put down that calculator, pick up your beach toys and reward yourself for a job well done. To deduct your tax-time stress, book online or speak with a Vacation Coordinator at (410) 723-2002.

Start Your Vacation When You Want

Flexible Vacation Options that Work for You

A lot of vacation spots only rent from Saturday-Saturday. With everyone coming and going at the same time, your vacation doesn’t exactly start out … like a vacation.

Maybe you’d like to start your vacation a little sooner and arrive on Friday. Maybe you have family activities on Saturday and can’t get away until Sunday. Or maybe you just can’t imagine leaving for vacation before you fix that dripping faucet.  That’s why many of our vacation properties offer you the option of a Friday-Friday or Sunday-Sunday vacation. After all, it’s your vacation. Shouldn’t you be the one who decides when it starts?

To enjoy the vacation you want when you want and avoid the Ocean City Saturday changeover,  simply search our website for alternate check-in dates or speak with a Vacation Coordinator at (410) 723-2002.  Or scroll down for a few of our featured properties!
