Friendly Ocean City is a beach resort town often described with superlatives, the most quoted of which is “The No. 1 family beach community in the country,” a title it received from the Travel Channel.
Just what makes Ocean City so great? First, there are the eight miles of sparkling ocean and bay beaches, all meticulously maintained.
Next, there are two and half miles of boardwalk containing eight full blocks of family amusements (from 6th to 14th Sts.) like Gillian's Island Golf & Water Park plus Wonderland Pier.
The Boardwalk is where you’ll also find the Music Pier, where concerts are performed throughout the year and is home to the Ocean City Pops.
And during the summer, every Thursday is family night, with free entertainment throughout town.
Adding to Ocean City’s family image is the fact that it’s a “dry” town, meaning there is no alcohol of any kind sold within its borders. However, alcohol is available in nearby Strathmere.
