Ocean City Beaches
Steps away from the hotel you’ll find one of the cleanest, most pristine beaches in the nation. Whether you’d like to frolic in the waves all summer or ride horses through the sand in the winter, Ocean City beaches are open all year round and are made for family fun.
Ocean City Boardwalk
How can you tell the Ocean City Boardwalk is one of the best there is? Maybe it’s the wide variety of gastronomic delights, or the tram that zips tired toes around, or the plentiful amusements and attractions. Or maybe it’s just that it’s been named one of Travel Channel’s “Top 10 Greatest Boardwalks.” Regardless, this stroll is not to be missed.
Jolly Roger Amusement Park
A day at the beach means more than just the ocean. A visit to Jolly Roger Amusement Park means roller coasters, exhilarating waterslides, go-kart tracks, ferris wheels, midway games and giant stuffed animals your kids will beg you to win (and carry). Both locations (The Pier and 30th Street) elevate the standard county fair to epic heights!
Seacrets Jamaica USA
If you’re looking for a party, you’ve found it. Seacrets is a 21-and-over hotspot that’s famous for its bars and clubs. There are many theme rooms (80s room, anyone?), outdoor dining and drinking, live bands and concerts at four different venues, great food and more than 20 drink stations throughout the property. Your cup is never empty and the music plays all night long.
Trimpers Rides and Amusement Park
This historic amusement park is more than 100 years old. Visitors here often stop first at the looming Haunted House, which is not for the faint of heart. The outdoor lots contain more family friendly entertainment, such as bumper cars and a shooting gallery.
Assateague Island National Seashore
More than 40,000 acres covered by beautiful white-sand beaches, wild ponies and nature trails await at this scenic wonderland. Families can camp, hike, swim and fish while visiting this branch of the National Park Service.
