Ocean City is a beach lovers paradise. Our beaches are raked nightly, have stationed lifeguards along most of them from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and are all easily accessible and open to the public. Oh, and they are FREE. The most popular and busiest beaches in Ocean City are in the downtown area along the boardwalk. This starts at the inlet and runs up to 27th street. As you get North of the boardwalk the beaches and areas get a little less busy, so if you are looking for a more relaxing experience and don’t need to be near the all the boardwalk action, North Ocean City is where you should look. This is generally North of 28th Street all the way up the coastline.
