4 OceanCity.com Facts You Never Would Have Guessed

While at our core we document Ocean City culture and events as well as the things to do and see in Worcester County generally, it is easy to forget that there are other things to see and do on the site. We were reflecting recently that the only thing that is more impressive than the interaction we have with our readers is how much that interaction shapes OceanCity.com every day. So as we gear up for another big season, we thought it would be fun to remind people about the lesser-known OceanCity.com facts that are at the heart of many other people’s enjoyment of it.

We Maintain an Active Forum for Ocean City Enthusiasts

Sure it’s old school, but our forum is one of the most active and knowledgeable around. Comprised of both locals and people from around the region who just love Ocean City, the forum is a place to reminisce but also to get info. Our forum members aren’t paid and they aren’t constrained in their views and recommendations. If you have a question on Ocean City, someone there has an answer. Heck, when we can’t find an answer that’s where we go.



We Have Weekly Contests

Photo Friday is a chance for you not only to share your photos from your Ocean City trip but also to win prizes. Just submit your photo through our website. We pick the four best and let the nearly 150,000 people who follow our Facebook page vote. The winner gets two tickets to Jolly Roger and the runner up gets the cover photo on our Facebook page. If you’re into sharing your Ocean City experience, though, we have another idea for you…


We Can Make You Internet Famous

We accept regular contributions to our blog from our readers. We edit them and add photos when necessary, but people who are interested in breaking into the blogging world contribute photoblogs and essays as a means of sharing their Ocean City Experience with as wide a variety of people as possible. But it isn’t just for professional writers. Sometimes people just contribute because they have an experience they want to share or need to let people in on a secret spot that they don’t think enough people enjoy. Heck, they even write about day trips they take outside of Ocean City.

We Know Ocean City Deals

It is something of an open secret that OceanCity.com is the best destination for gift certificates and coupons. Working with local partners, we’re able to provide discounted gift certificates that can mean keeping your wallet a little heavier a little longer. More important, though, just browsing the coupons gives you the opportunity to try a place or experience you might not otherwise have tried.

We Are Hotel Central

Yes. This is a fifth category, but we’re pretty sure you would have guessed this fact, do it really doesn’t count as something you never would have guessed. Still, it doesn’t hurt to give you a friendly reminder that if you haven’t booked yet, go ahead and do that now…
