Check out our top five tips to making your Ocean City vacation the best one yet, and book your beach vacation today! 

  1. Choose the Right Beach for Your Best Vacation 

What’s better than a vacation in Ocean City, Maryland? Some beaches are tailored to a certain crowd, but in OCMD there’s a little something for everyone! Grab a delicious dinner for two by the water, take your kids to enjoy the amusements or games, or rent a board and try your hand at surfing or stand up paddle boarding. It’s all available for you in our favorite beach town! 

  1. Bring a Comfortable Beach Chair

No trip to the beach is complete without a few days spent by the water. Be sure that you relax in luxury when you bring a comfortable beach chair to sit and watch the waves or read your favorite book! If you forget your chair, no worries! Chairs and umbrellas can be rented right on the beach! 

Pro Tip: Get a reclining chair so you can lay back and sunbathe in style! 

  1. Protect Your Skin! 

Pack a new bottle of sunscreen to pack so you can be sure that you won’t run out, and be sure to check the expiration date. If you’re getting in the water, consider a water-resistant sunscreen. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends using a broad-spectrum sunscreen formula for UVA and UVB protection, with an SPF of 15 or higher.

  1. Leave Only Your Footprints

Take a trash bag to the beach for your own litter, and carry it with you as you walk along the shore so you can leave the beaches just a little cleaner than they were when you arrived! Picking up just a few extra pieces of trash a day can make a huge difference in our beaches. 

  1. Plan Fun Activities for Good and Bad Weather

Spending time in the sand is even better when you’re prepared! Bring plenty of sand toys to build sandcastles, bodyboards, kites for the kids (to be enjoyed after the lifeguards leave their stands), and don’t forget to bring your book or e-reader to relax in the sun! Good weather on vacation is preferred, but on the off chance that your beach day is looking a little cloudy, remember to bring portable board games, playing cards, coloring books, and more so you can enjoy your time together inside as well!
