Travel Smarter, Not Harder


If you’ve ever driven to Ocean City in summer on a Saturday, you know that traffic is a given. Over 8 million visitors a year flock to the area in search of beach bliss, transforming the normally quiet town of only 7,100 year-round residents into a vibrant resort. Yet, the fact remains that Ocean City is only 4.5 square miles in size and a skinny 10 miles in length, with just three ways on and off the island. If you’re traveling during peak days or peak hours, you will likely find yourself crawling along like a group of slow-motion sea turtles. Not exactly the most peaceful way to start (or end) your vacation!

Think Like a Local – Beat the Peak

What’s a determined beach-goer to do? All you’re trying to do is enjoy your vacation, right? As many locals & long-time visitors know, the key to avoiding traffic is arriving and departing during off-peak times. That’s why select homes in Vantage’s inventory offer Sunday-Sunday and Friday-Friday rentals, which allow guests to arrive and depart on days of the week that typically have a lower traffic volume. That means while all the other visitors are battling the masses on a Saturday afternoon, you can be relaxing in your beach chair, eating french fries on the Boardwalk, or crabbing and fishing on the bay. See below for some of our favorite properties that offer great alternatives to the traditional Saturday rental:
