Where to stay in Ocean City

Ocean City is one of the country's major vacation resorts, so it's no surprise that room rates fluctuate with the season. Summer commands the highest prices, and most hotels require minimum stays of two or three nights. Make your reservations well in advance if you wish to stay anywhere near the water, especially if you want a room with an ocean view. You can avoid the crowds by renting a waterfront townhouse, but be prepared to pay a bundle even in the off-season.
