Taxes Done? Trade Your 1040 for SPF 40

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.

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?

Spend quality time with mom by celebrating Mother’s Day weekend (May 12th-14th) at the beach.  Numerous restaurants throughout town have Mother’s Day specials – a great way to show how much you care.  If you’re looking for a fun activity, consider participating in the Mother’s Day Memorial 3-Mile Fun Run/Walk taking place on May 14th at Northside Park.  This is a memorial event for those who have lost their mother, as well as to honor mothers everywhere.  Race packet pick-up/registration will be held at The Abbey Burger Bistro starting at 7:30 AM before the event, in addition to a post-race party with drinks and food to celebrate Mother’s Day.

Rev up your engines at Cruisin’ Ocean City (May 18th-21st) at the OC Inlet Parking Lot and Roland E. Powell Convention Center.  This popular car show is a must-see event for the car-lover in your family with over 3,400 hot rods, customs, classics, street machines, and everything in between.  During this four-day event, visitors can enjoy live entertainment, celebrity appearances, attractions, and vendors.  One of the highlights that you won’t want to miss are the car parades that take place on the Boardwalk on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday morning from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM.
