Friends Getaway to the Maryland Shore

Ocean City, Maryland is the perfect location for a friends getaway to the Maryland shore. The Maryland Atlantic coast has some of the best off-shore fishing in the Mid-Atlantic region, as well as plenty of options to fish from the shore or within the many tidal inlets. One unique experience is fishing from your kayak as you float through the marshlands.

If fishing is just one part of your trip, Ocean City provides a never-ending list of activities to add to your experience; there’s always something happening. Stroll the boardwalk, lounge on the beach, take a dip in the Atlantic, or try your hand at surfing before sampling the great seafood available in Ocean City.

Ocean City has long been one of Maryland’s most visited destinations. Aside from the entertainment and fun offered in Ocean City, visitors can’t miss the natural beauty of Assateague Island. As Maryland’s only oceanfront state park, Assateague offers visitors the chance to experience the Eastern Shore’s abundant wildlife and untouched habitats. Along with the many different bird species and marine life are the wild ponies that call Assateague home. Hop in a kayak and cruise the inlets taking pictures of the wild ponies, or pop a tent at the Assateague campgrounds for a memorable Maryland experience.
