Labor Day: Don’t Believe the Myth

Labor Day is NOT the Last Weekend of Summer

Ocean City: Keep Summer Going


Hopefully, you enjoyed the boardwalk, the sand, & the water while visiting Ocean City over Labor Day Weekend, but please tell us you haven’t fallen prey to the myth that has long taken over so many people’s lives? This myth has caused many to forgo summer activities and abandon the thought of getting away after Labor Day. Labor Day is NOT the last weekend of summer! A campaign started by Odyssea Watersports #keepsummergoing has spread, and we are ecstatic to hold the megaphone to let everyone know!


Weather is an average 76° in September, and there are still four more weekends in September not to mention all the days in between! It might be hard to imagine for those that only come in June, July & August, but October is often still temperate and although swimming may be off the list for you, the average temperature only falls ten degrees. 66°! That’s just an air conditioned room or a balmy day for those living in higher latitudes! With many places offering entertainment, dining, lodging, and shopping, beyond September, Ocean City is the place to be!

Keep summer going! Many still come to the beaches!

We are asking for your help to grow this campaign and educate the disillusioned and unaware. Tell those that have been misinformed. Awaken those that have gone back to school and work and long for June to come again. Shout to all to come to Ocean City now! Book a room, rent a condo, reserve a table, eat fries, share popcorn and if you do any of the above…Take a pic and caption it with #keepsummergoing Post it on our FB page!

Keep Summer Going  - relax & enjoy September weather

We know some will be tough to convince, and we have come prepared. Here are some points to declare when they say summer has come to an end:


Tactics to help you combat the naysayers:

  • Remind them that Fall doesn’t officially start until September 23rd
  • Ask them why they are wearing shorts if it isn’t summer?
  • Invite them to barbecue, (“foodbabies” makes even the grouchiest person happy)
  • If they still don’t believe (a fairy won’t lose its wings) tell them “Thank you” because if there wasn’t a Debbie Downer there wouldn’t be an end to ”tourist season” One of the best parts of September in OC is the elbow room!

Events in September are some of the best attended events in OC! Don’t be left out. Don’t watch from some live feed. Book a place to stay and indulge!

Keep Summer Going - barbecue with friends and family
