About Ocean City

One of the most unique beaches in the state. A boardwalk that strikes a perfect balance between old school and touristy, accompanied by a quaint town surrounded by water. Gillian's Wonderland Pier, Playland's Castaway Cove and OC Waterpark mean even more to do in the area. This is a completely dry town, which makes it very family-friendly.
