Planning your beach vacation? There’s nothing like counting down the days until you’re laying in the sand and listening to the waves crash behind you. While exciting, the process of planning a vacation can also be overwhelming. Blogs, social media, and guidebooks have never been more plentiful, and the information that’s available can sometimes make the task of planning your trip even more challenging. This is why the travel experts at the Clarion Resort Hotel devised this list, so you can plan your vacation in five easy steps! 

5 Steps to Planning Your Vacation

Decide Where to Go

The first step to planning your vacation is deciding on where to go. Plan your summer vacation to Ocean City, Maryland for the most fun and excitement you can have at the beach! Whether you’re taking a family beach vacation, enjoying world-class sport fishing, honing in on your golf skills at one of the 17 championship courses, or coming for a quick getaway from work, Ocean City offers endless things to do! 

Pick a Time to Travel

When you travel is normally just as important as where you travel, but not in Ocean City! OCMD offers awesome things to do no matter when you book your stay. Our beach and boardwalk are open all year long! Come during the summer months for warm weather and amusements, or if you’d prefer a slower-paced vacation, come in the fall for quiet walks on the beach and bike rides on the boardwalk. 

Find a Great Place to Stay

Finding a great place to stay can make or break any vacation. The Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Hotel in Ocean City, Maryland is one of the best in town! Offering newly-renovated rooms, pet-friendly accommodations, and world-class dining all in one complete package! Don’t believe us? See for yourself!

Call Your Bank

A practical step that many people forget about is calling their banks and credit cards. You don’t want to be on vacation with a card that keeps declining or be unable to quickly access your funds. Credit card companies get nervous when they see their clients making purchases that they don’t normally make, especially when they’re somewhere they don’t live. Give your financial institutions a heads up before you go, then they can authorize the cards to be used where you’re going. 

Go and Enjoy! 

You’ve taken the proper steps to plan for your beach vacation, now live it up! The work is done and the fun is just getting started! Check out events & entertainment so you can maximize your fun during your trip! Remember that the Clarion Hotel is a pet and family-friendly hotel, so if you have any questions during your trip, ask your neighborhood experts at the front desk!
