Summer is over, but there is plenty of fun activities to try at the beach.
WINTERFEST OF LIGHTS – November 17, 2022 – December 31, 2022
Celebrate the holidays with a ½ mile walk around a decorated, paved path with a stunning light display of over a million Christmas lights. Truly an OC tradition this spectacular display has been around for over 30 years.
ICE SKATING at the Carousel Hotel– Open year-round, hours may vary.
This fun family-friendly activity is a must-try unique experience at the beach.
BRING YOUR DOG on the beach or boardwalk – October 1, 2022 – April 30, 2023
All fall and winter-long dogs are allowed to join you on a walk on the beach or boardwalk. In addition, you can take your pup to the newly renovated OC dog park on 94th street.
Tons of great restaurants are open at the beach during the wintertime. A few of our favorites are the Hobbit, Waterman’s, Sunset Grille, and OC Wasabi. For the full list of where you can dine out in OC, check out the below link.
The kids may be returning to school soon, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had in Ocean City this fall, even with the summertime ending. See the below lineup of events you can check out when planning a trip to the beach this fall:
Check out these 4 local recommended places to grab a bite while vacationing in Ocean City Maryland.
If you’re looking for a fresh and delicious meal sourced from local farms, you have to check out Hooked on 81st in Ocean City. It will undoubtedly be the best meal you’ll have while on vacation. They also have great happy hour prices, if you want to try out the food without the double-digit prices.
Hands down best pizza around. Nothing beats Lombardi’s pizza, take out or dine in, you do not want to miss out on Lombardi’s. The restaurant is family owned and has been around for 50 years. I personally love their pizzas, however, if you want to opt for something else, they also offer great pasta dishes made with their own homemade sauce.
This place offers a bit of everything, not only is it a one-stop shop for beer, wine, or spirit, but it’s also a delicious restaurant. The atmosphere is awesome, it’s a great place to enjoy a drink with friends, as well as a great meal. If you stop in, I recommend saving room for dessert and trying their delicious house-made donuts.
Home of the original orange crush, what more needs to be said? However, I’ll continue… located in West Ocean City, this rustic waterfront bar and restaurant is a great family-friendly option. They’ve got a great selection of menu options so there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy.
Calling all golfers! While Ocean City, Maryland is known for its boardwalk, sandy beaches, Thrashers French Fries and being the White Marlin Capital of the World; did you know it also provides some of the best views you’ll be able to find on a Mid Atlantic golf course. To help you find the perfect match for your golf travel party, we have listed the 4 best golf courses for all skill levels below!
The Links at Lighthouse Sound
The Links at Lighthouse Sound provides expansive views of the Assawoman Bay and Ocean City skyline. I don’t think you can take a golf trip to Ocean City without playing Lighthouse Sound, definitely not a course you want to pass on. The course is located one mile west of Ocean City. Fun fact, it’s also home of the longest cart bridge in America.
Newport Bay, Rum Pointe, and Eagles Landing
You could also try your hand at “Golfs Longest Drive” and check out one of these three fine golf options located out on highway 611: Ocean City Golf Club- Newport Bay, Rum Pointe, and Eagles Landing. Aside from its views of the Sinepuxent Bay, Eagles landing is also one of the more reasonably priced courses in the area.
We did the research and came up with a list of the 4 best ice cream spots in and around OC. Check the list out for when you need to take a break from the heat and grab a cold and refreshing treat! Things we took into consideration when compiling this list include the location, atmosphere, value, and quality.
Number one on the list is no other than an OC long-standing classic, Dumser’s Dairyland. If you decide to grab some Dumser’s, you won’t have to travel very far as they have seven locations in OC. That’s right 7 locations on the 9 miles stretch extending from the Intel to Delaware line! Two of the locations also serve up lunch and dinner (49th and 123rd street Coastal Highway), you can enjoy a burger and fries, and complete your meal with one of their 15 plus ice cream flavors, a Sundae, or a milkshake. I personally would try and avoid the location on 49th during the evenings as it’s close to Seacrets so it can get crowded quickly.
Next up on the list and my personal favorite is Island Creamery. Now, Island Creamery is located just outside of Ocean City, with the closest of its three locations in Berlin, MD. It has however been a staple on the eastern shore since 1975. If you get a chance to go to Berlin, which I highly recommend, you’ll have to stop by this adorable ice cream spot. They make their all-natural premium ice cream mix from local cows in their original location on Chincoteague Island.
Another eastern shore classis is Vanderwende, and lucky for us they just opened up a location just past the Delaware line, in Fenwick. The ice cream is made from their very own dairy farm cows and you can tell they pride themselves in making quality ice cream! I recommend taking the trip up Coastal Highway to the Village of Fenwick shopping center, browsing the shops, and enjoying a cone from Vanderwende’s ice cream shop.
Last, but not least is KingKone ice cream. KingKone has two locations, 69th and 143rd street Coastal Highway. They serve Hershey’s ice cream and have a large variety of toppings to choose from! We are fortunate enough to be located right across the street, and the temptation to visit every day is a hard one to resist.
