Ugh, this town has gone downhill.

If you have a pet and want to rent, good luck. Very pet unfriendly. Do not go to the inlet at night. The closer you get to the inlet the worse the town gets. If you want to live in Ocean City, go as far North as you can. In other words, get as close to Delaware as you can get. Car weekends and Winterfest of Lights is what this town came up with to make money when the summer season is over. The car weekends are just so obnoxious and there is no job market here in the offseason. If you have money and want to retire look at Delaware or better yet head south. This town is just not what it used to be. This town also needs some nightclubs to go dancing, all this town has is Seacrets. No where to dance.

Nice place to spend your holiday

Good place where you can spend your summer time. Recommend for families as there is a bit poor nightlife. Your children will enjoy neverending beach covered with fine white sand. The ocean comes a bit wild sometime so keep your childern watching. If you are hunghry, you will get wide range of restaurants, where you can get everything what you want. My best experience is with Dough Roller restaurant on 70th street with very kind service and great dishes for good prices.
in a peak summer time there could be problem to find a place in a hotel for a good price as this place is very popular tourist destination.
