There’s always something going on, no matter the time of day or night, and a lot of it is free.
Children of all ages can enjoy amusements and arcades. Take a ride on one of our Ferris wheels for a breathtaking perspective. Enjoy the thrill of our 1902 carousel or the calmer pace of our roller coaster. Make sure to swing by one of our many arcades and try your luck at one of our many games!
Hungry? Not long now, then. Maryland crab cakes and Delmarva fried chicken are among the options. Enjoy a mouthwatering cheeseburger or a succulent piece of smoked pit beef. No matter what you’re craving, you’ll find it at Ocean City, where the dining options are nearly limitless.
Not to mention the sweets. Saltwater taffy, caramel popcorn, thick creamy fudge, rich ice cream, hot funnel cakes, cotton candy, and chocolate-covered strawberries are all on offer at the festival.
On the beachfront and on the side streets, you’ll find lots of places to browse after a boardwalk dinner.
What are you waiting for? The painstakingly preserved Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum allows visitors to relive the heroics of the U.S. Life-Saving Service, the forerunner of today’s Coast Guard. The Aquarium Room is a hit with kids, thanks to its massive saltwater tanks filled with fascinating sea life.
The boardwalk comes alive with lights, music, and revelry at night. The promenade along the beach is lined with free activities for families throughout the summer.
We also make it simple to keep on top of the game. If you’re traveling with family or friends, the OC boardwalk offers a wide range of hotel and motel options, as well as condominiums. Take advantage of the award-winning boardwalk attractions just outside your door, the beach a short walk away, and a stunning ocean view to get your day started on a positive note every day.
Isn’t that only the start? Our old-fashioned wooden boardwalk was named the greatest in the country by the Travel Channel. There are just ten in the entire world, according to National Geographic. In addition, it was voted one of the top food boardwalks in the country by USA Today. To sum it up, it’s three miles of intense pleasure – and just more incentive to spend your next holiday in Ocean City, Maryland.
Take a stroll along one of the nicest boardwalks in the United States.
