The White Marlin Capital of the World

One of the country's favorite vacation resorts, Ocean City draws nearly 8 million visitors annually with its oceanfront boardwalk, clean beaches, and amusement parks. At the height of the tourist season, this town of barely 7,000 permanent residents becomes the second most populous city in Maryland, its beachfront swelling with vacationers from across the continent. The popular "OC" offers almost as many bars and clubs as beaches; its nightlife is one of the state's few major year-round attractions.

Where to stay

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.
