I went to the beautiful city last November-- Right in the middle of Fall. I have also been there in the summer.
Wow what a difference from season to season.
Ocean City has a great gateway arch that opens up to the boardwalk. We parked outside of the arch (had no problem parking close in November).. Walked up the sidewalk under the arch to true beauty.
This is off-season as the amusement parks aren't open.. They close in Late September. It was a beautiful fall day-- still windy enough to need a light coat.. There were still numerous people walking the beach along the ocean with pets, some just looking for washed up shells.
I have never been to a beach when it was so peaceful-- We walked up and down the beach with our sneakers in our hands filling our pockets with sea shells. The sand was great! The water chilly.. but who could not dip your feet into it. We walked for what seemed like a mile each side of the boardwalk arch.
We then walked up and down the sidewalk and did shopping- Stopped into Thrashers for fries-- OMG-- if you haven't ever had Ocean City Thrasher fries you gotta come for this- No ketchup needed-- just vinegar and salt!
Went into the coolest building with a shark sticking out of it. Ripley's Believe it or Not..
I love Ocean City... I enjoyed it in the fall almost as much as the summer-
In the summer the amusement parks are open, there are more outside vendors, more activities.... But way more hectic and people-
Fall is the perfect time to take a visit to Ocean City-- Peaceful!
