Visit Ocean City and Ocean Pines this Spring.
 
 
If you've never vacationed in Ocean City or Ocean Pines during the Spring, you're missing quite a treat. Area towns, businesses and tourism agencies have worked hard to extend vacation season, and as a result, there's more reason than ever to book a Spring getaway at the beach.

 

1. Low Rates and Large Selections

Although rock-bottom winter prices increase gradually beginning in April for most properties, you'll save up to 50 percent on peak-season rates by booking an early-mid May vacation. And because demand is lower this time of year, you'll also find wide availability, even for last-minute reservations, and a larger selection of properties that allow miniweek bookings. 

 

2. Uncrowded Beaches and Attractions

You'll see plenty of people around, especially downtown and on the Boardwalk and in restaurants, but all in all, crowds are light compared to peak season. You might even have the beach to yourself during the week, particularly in North Ocean City.

 

3. Ocean City is Open for Business

The first wave of seasonal businesses opens for Valentine's Day weekend. By Easter, the vast majority of businesses are open on weekends, and by early-mid May they're operating full time. However, some Boardwalk amusements are open only on weekends until Memorial Day weekend.

 

4. Special Events

May brings a host of special events to Ocean City and the surrounding area. Springfest, Cruisin' events in Ocean City and Berlin, the Beachfest Volleyball Festival, and the Berlin Jazz & Blues Bash are just a few of the events that warrant a spot on your calendar.
