Approximately 8 million visitors annually visit Ocean City, a year-round resort on Maryland’s Eastern Shore that boasts a 10-mile beachfront, a three-mile boardwalk and an endless number of eateries and shops – some dating back to the 1920s.
Ocean City is an appealing destination for families with young children. Water slides, amusement parks, haunted houses and dozens of miniature golf courses entice returning visitors. A Wild West theme park that features a rodeo and ceremonial Indian dances is another family attraction.
For others, Ocean City is a place for parasailing, kayaking, fishing, surfing and golf – 15 courses are within a short-distance drive. The town is also home to the largest white marlin tournament in the country. A local outlet mall with national-brand stores is another option, especially for those rare times when it rains.
