There are so many hotels in Ocean City, how will I pick the right one? I cannot afford to take a vacation this year, can I? These are questions that people ask themselves all of the time. This is what you need to do. There are many hotels in Ocean City, that is for sure, but what that means is there is a lot of different products to choose from. There are hotels on the Boardwalk, on the Ocean, Bayside, some with indoor pools, outdoor pools and both, some with restaurants and bars, upscale, luxury and economy accommodations without all of the frills. Then make your reservation now! Many hotels are offering early booking discounts. These discounts typically end in mid to late March. Check out the deals at www.oceancity.com. In the center of the page, there is a section that says “Save for 2009.” All hotels in this section are offering discounted rates of up to 30%. In addition to this discount, if you book under this program you will receive a packet of gift certificates to use on your vacation. What are you waiting for?
If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally. It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.
