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.

Grand Hotel

If you have stayed at the Grand Hotel on the boardwalk, please give your honest review. I have a reservation at the Days Inn next door for the July 4th week, but was thinking of switching to the Grand for the week before. I assume the July 4th week is crazy crowded, the last time we were there for the 4th was in the late 80's and I believe it...
