Many people visit our shores, so it’s no secret how wonderful the Atlantic Ocean is. In fact, the local beaches have won a number of awards over the years as some of the cleanest and most pristine. Everyone knows there are waves out there, but many overlook how good the waves can be here in Ocean City, Maryland and on the Delmarva Peninsula. What you may not know, or even believe, is that our waves can be world-class. The catch- it doesn’t happen as often as some other places around the world that are known for great wave riding sports. Pictured on this page are waves that show just how perfect it…
(July 4, 2014) The 2014 Play It Safe program saw approximately 8,300 teens take part in the campaign, which provides high school graduates with organized, alcohol- and drug-free activities in Ocean City.

(June 13, 2014) While the lifeguards are alertly scanning their area and the water in front of them for signs of danger, trouble is sometimes festering behind their stands this time of year. It’s what some refer to as the “Class of 2014.” It’s a tradition thousands of graduates participate in each year; the trek to Ocean City to enjoy their freedom. Full of confidence, and feeling immune to any dangers, they sometimes allow the excitement of the atmosphere to impede their judgment enough to get them into trouble. When we get a warm sunny day, the water temperatures are inviting. If you add…

Hello All, For the first time, I'll be in Ocean City for their annual Air Show weekend. Does anybody recommend a good place to get the best view of everything?
Well, I must be getting old. We've been going to Cruisin weekend almost from the first year (it's been going on for 25 years now) and we've always enjoyed it. We skipped a few years when the pickups got out of hand and the kids were riding in the back, throwing water on people, and just being a general PITA. Thankfully, they aren't allowed to do that anymore, but this year it didn't stop the diesel pickups from showing up in force, along with teens and ricer cars with their bumble bee exhausts. We got there Thursday and first checked out the Convention Center...
My husband and our 7 year old daughter are driving from Buffalo, NY to OC for 6 days in July. We booked a room at the Grand Hotel and Spa, and we're so excited given our miserable winter here. Since we are driving, we can bring a lot of things from home, such as beach chairs, umbrella, and sand toys. What are must needed items we need to bring? We'll probably bring some beer (Blue Light) and a c bottle of wine or two (we're celebrating our 10th anniversary while we're there). Thanks!!
