The Fourth of July is all about American traditions like freedom, family, friends, and fireworks. As an American, you have the freedom to assemble your family and friends in Ocean City, Maryland for July 4th fireworks, and as well as an abundance of other activities to make your holiday vacation memorable.
July 4th and Ocean City are synonymous with each other, so every year the town goes above and beyond to give guests an extraordinary experience by hosting not one, but two Fourth of July celebrations. If you’re downtown, the action all takes place on the beach at North Division St. and if you’re uptown, Northside Park is where you want to be. Both events feature free concerts beginning at 8pm followed by spectacular fireworks displays. Both town celebrations are free to attend, but remember to bring a chair or blanket and get there early to grab a great spot.
If you find yourself in midtown Ocean City on July 4th, fret not because Seacrets hosts an Independence Day party of its own. Located on 49th St. and the bay, Seacrets has a vibrant bay area that’s an all day party, live music across multiple stages, and a fireworks display that is equally as impressive as the town’s.
Whether you choose to commemorate our nation’s birthday by lounging in the sun, splashing in the surf, boating on the bay, cooking out, eating crabs, shopping on the boardwalk, or bar hopping, Ocean City offers all the attractions and amenities you need for a star spangled celebration that will make our Founding Fathers proud. Whether you spend every July 4 in Ocean City, or are coming for the first time, there a few better ways to celebrate Independence Day than with the sand between your toes.
