The Summer Scoop

As you celebrate summer and begin to bask in the sun, we’d like to share several noteworthy reasons for you to visit Maryland’s enchanting seashore. For starters, FREE family fun is offered six nights per week! From “Sundaes in the Park,” to movies on the beach, to the all-new “Dance Party Nights,” you’ll find entertainment for all ages. You may even feel as if you’re in Hollywood as you watch the new “100 Nights of Lights.” Visit OCocean.com for a complete listing of events and times.

Now, the inside scoop
Since everyone loves a good secret, we thought we’d share an insider’s tip. It’s best to make plans to visit when rates are at their lowest — Sunday through Thursday.  Our mid-week “Summer Splash” program makes it easy to find great rates! Additionally, we are excited to announce a new promotion designed specifically for Maryland residents. With most Maryland schools starting after Labor Day, the hospitality community has joined together to welcome Marylanders back to visit the last week of August.˜The “Maryland Week” promotion will feature deals, specifically for anyone with a MD license. The promotion will begin Sunday, August 27.  These promotions can be found on the “Deals” page of OCVisitor.com.
Another great way to be a little thrifty is to visit during Hotel Week. Mimicking Restaurant Week, Hotel Week has been designed to offer great deals throughout the city. This promotion also aims to boost business at the end of summer. Beginning on Sunday, August 27 and running through Thursday September 10 (excluding Labor Day weekend), participating lodging members will offer beach bargains with free nights. For example, stay three nights, get the fourth free; stay four nights and get the fifth night free. Three-night stays receive 15 percent off, four-night stays receive 20 percent off, and five-night stays receive 25 percent off. To learn more and see these great deals, visit OceanCityHotelWeek.com.
