The Boardwalk is still close, however, so access is easy should you want to venture into its madness. The Convention Center, with its new Performing Arts Center is the hub of a lot of activity in Ocean City and is located at 40th St., making mid-town the ideal location for anyone attending events there. If you don’t want the noise and activity of the Boardwalk, but still want to be close to Seacrets, the Convention Center, and other Ocean City hot spots, mid-town is a great place to start your hotel search. Here is a list of some of your mid-town hotel/motel options:
Uptown Area — from 62nd St. to the Delaware Line
This area is known as “condo row” and has many high-rise condo buildings to go along with its hotels and motels. Uptown tends to be quieter and is more family oriented than the mid and downtown areas. The beach is calmer, but less attractions and dining/entertainment options are within walking distance unless you like the few restaurants near your hotel or condo building. Northside Park, home to sports fields, free events, and the award-winning Winterfest of Lights, is found uptown, as is Original Greene Turtle, Gold Coast Mall, and many local hangouts. Uptown also offers easier access to the golf courses in Delaware, the shopping in Rehoboth, and some of the other Delaware Beach activities. By gaining access to this the uptown area across the Route 90 bridge, you will alleviate some traffic woes by avoiding downtown Ocean City, plus you can always leave your car in the lot where you have mostly free parking and take the bus downtown to visit the Boardwalk. The Clarion, which offers luxury and great dining — as well as great views of the ocean from their restaurant and fabulous beach tunes on the deck at Lenny’s, the Carousel and the Princess Royale are some of uptown’s most iconic hotels, but far from the only options.
