Did you know that this little island is one of the top destination for the east coast for vacation? I never heard of Ocean City until I visited, but it sure is a great place to visit.
Ocean City is a resort town, featuring miles a wooden boardwalk lined with restaurants, shops, and hotels. You can go on a boat tour, kayak, fish, swim and surf. The Assateague Island is about 30 min drive and they have wild horses there. I was fortunate to go to the visitor center but next time, I hope I can go camping there. The visitor center played a 15-minute video about the Assateague and Ocean City history. The Native Americans settled here then eventually it was developed into today’s tourist site. At first, it Ocean City was only visited by a small group of people because you have to take a ferry to the island, but later a bridge was built to help the island grow economically.
I only spent 2 days and 1 night there for this Thanksgiving holiday, but the trip was worth it. The beach was just beautiful. There were not as many tourists since it is November. This is great for hotel prices, parking spaces, and no traffic. If you love seafood, this is the place.
Here are some of my photos of the ocean.
