Guide to Thanksgiving in Ocean City 2021

Thanksgiving 2021 Style:

Thanksgiving will be here before we know it, so now’s the time to make our holiday plans. We are all hoping this Thanksgiving will be back to normal, where we can all get together with our family and friends. You may be having Thanksgiving at your home, but this could be the year you decide to get away from it all and head to Ocean City. We have condos and hotels where you can cook your own meal or order take-out and bring it back to your suite, or treat yourself and sit down to a beautiful meal prepared by someone else!

Other ideas….

Enjoy a peaceful, quiet beach… Head to Berlin, a town that embodies festive charm and coziness during every season but especially during the holidays… Run, jog, slowly stroll or walk your pets on the Boardwalk… Find an off season special at your favorite restaurant… Get up early and watch a sunrise. We are almost going to insist you do this. You can always climb back into bed after the sun comes up! Whatever you do, unwind, relax, refresh. It’s easy to do this at the beach in Ocean City during the  off season!
