Ocean City hotels and restaurants make Ocean City entertaining during the off-season, and with the package deals and live music they offer, who wouldn’t want to visit during this time of year? It’s true that all the tan (and some burnt) people, buses, beach chairs, sunny days, and scattered sand make Ocean City the lovable beach town we all know. Even still, there is something special and perhaps enchanting about the empty beaches and chilly winter air that comprises Ocean City during the winter months. If you’ve never been there in the winter, maybe it’s time to try it out. The locals know how to have a good time, and with the calendar events displayed below, you may not even miss the swarms of people in bikinis and swim trunks. Try something new!

Fenwick Inn, located at 13801 Coastal Highway, offers a winter promotion where guests receive one night free when they buy one night during the week.
