Fun Free Family Activities in Ocean City

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.

Looking for family-friendly activities in Ocean City? How about FREE family activities? Even better.

 

Ocean City has fun-filled activities and entertainment planned all summer long! The town understands that it is important to enjoy the Maryland sunshine, play on our white-sand beaches, relax on your vacation, and to have a great time on a budget. If you are looking for a few free activities to partake in, check out these upcoming events!
