SOAK UP THE SUN TO OCEAN CITY!

Take a short 10-minute drive to Maryland’s Atlantic Jewel, Ocean City, and enjoy endless activities in the sun and near the ocean! Start by taking in the sunrise on the beach! Each day gets only one sunrise, and there’s no better place to see it than from the beach in Ocean City.  Then make your way to the world-famous Ocean City Boardwalk. Since 1902, Ocean City’s three-mile Boardwalk has been a top seafront destination where millions have made lasting memories of summer, sun and family fun. Rent a bike to cruise the boards all morning then stay all day and explore. Grab a cup of legendary Thrasher’s Fries (with extra vinegar!), wander the corridors of Ocean Gallery, and don’t forget to beat your best Skee-Ball score at one of the arcades.  Enjoy a fishing adventure on the beach. Drop a line off the Ocean City Pier or the Route 50 Bridge, surf fish from the shore, take the family on a boat trip or board a charter and head for the canyons, which are home to tuna, mahi-mahi or huge billfish. Plus, you can catch a really big one here—Ocean City is the White Marlin Capital of the WorldSee Ocean City by Paddleboard or Kayak. Ocean City’s sheltered bay is home to osprey, egrets, horseshoe crabs and more. Get up close to nature with a guided kayak eco-tour or prepare to get wet while learning to stand-up paddleboard. Once you get the hang of it, it’s like walking on water.  Cool off at Jolly Roger’s Splash Mountain Water Park. Ride the slides or challenge the Raging Rapids, take the family for a madcap water-fight on the Rainforest Walk, ride a wave of adrenaline on the Master Blaster watercoaster, or defy gravity in the thrilling AquaLoop. At Splash Mountain, the wet-n-wild fun never stops!  End your day at Ocean City by catching the sunset on the bay.  With sprays of gold and red shot through an azure sky slowly darkening to purple, Ocean City sunsets over the bay offer an unparalleled riot of color, and a perfect excuse to put the world on pause.  There’s no finer way to end a day—or start an evening—of Ocean City Adventures.
