Memorial Day Weekend in Ocean City Md!

Kick off the season in Ocean City over Memorial Day Weekend — lots of people do, because for many, Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of the summer. Hopefully there’s good weather and you can spend your time outside, enjoying got beach, the Boardwalk, and everything Ocean City has to offer. If a business has been closed over the winter months, you can bet they are open for Memorial Day Weekend! So enjoy the beach, the Boardwalk, the parks, and the pools, and make the most of the Holiday. Here are a few events happening in and around Ocean City for Memorial Day, as well as live entertainment over the holiday weekend. 

Rides and Amusements in Ocean City

Memorial Day Weekend marks the beginning of summer in Ocean City, which also means everything should be open for the season! This includes the rides at Trimper Rides on the Boardwalk, Jolly Roger at the Pier and at 30th St. Speedworld with its go karts at 30th Street will also be open, as will the go karts at Baja Amusement, Pro Track and Grand Prix on Rt 50 in West Ocean City. And if the weather co-operates, Splash Mountain on 30th Street will be open. Let the summer begin!

Time to Get Out on the Water

It’s not too early to rent a pontoon boat, or a jet ski and get out on the water for the start of the summer. You can see Ocean City from a different angle when you’re out on the water. Enjoy with friends and family, make a day of it or just a couple of hours with it. Set your pace, and go for it! Our favorite places to rent from are Odyssea Watersports and Bayside Boat Rentals. Give them a call and make your reservation, along with some great memories.
