  • If you've never fallen asleep or awoke with cool ocean air in your face - you must. If you've never watched the sunrise and sunsets over the beach - you must. Ever drank and ate and danced while acting the fool in swim trunks? You must.
  • This place is truly amazing. I have gone to many vacations much farther and more expensive, and this is by far my favorite. I love the way me and my family/friends laid on the beach all day, and then at about 3 we would go relax in our hotel pool and drink pina coladas, we would then go and eat a delicious crab and seafood dinner. For the rest of the night we walked the boardwalk and fished at the end of the dock. I know sometimes you feel like Ocean City won’t be fun but it is by far the best vacation ever. I truly recommend this place.
  • Love, love this place!! My first visit and certainly won't be my last. I had a blast. Just was upset about the pet policy. They are people too and a members of my family!!
  • Nice place to go during the summer, lots of places for nice custon tshirts, candy and much more.
  • Best Beach in my life huge waves great sand worth a visit!
