COVID-19 NOTICE: Ocean City is welcoming guests. Please be advised that masks may be required at some establishments and social distancing should be maintained. Retail establishments are opening at 50% capacity, masks are required. Restaurants may offer outside dining where applicable. Gatherings of more than 10 people are NOT PERMITTED.


Being an Ocean City local is a badge of honor that many aspire for, yet only a few thousand ever achieve. Ocean City locals get to spend all year at the beach, not just a week or two in the summer, and as a result, are in search of much different experiences than our millions of annual tourists.

As an Ocean City local, the odds of you needing hotel bookings and some of the other vacation planning resources we have on our site are pretty slim, so we created this section to give you streamlined access to the stuff you care about without getting bogged down by a bunch of information locals already know.

Whether you want to stay in the know about all things Ocean City, save money at your favorite places in town, or plan for an upcoming event, you’ll find all the stuff locals want below, including news, coupons to restaurants/bars, discounted gift certificates, upcoming events, info on beach weddings, the Performing Arts Center, healthcare and more.

Weird right? Any suggestions on suitable accommodations would be greatly appreciated. I tried to find "The Purple Pad" on a VRBO site but came up...
