Who doesn’t like free?

Maria Drakos - Friday, April 29, 2016

Tired of spending too much money on vacation. Ocean City Maryland has your back. We’ve got a multitude of things to do that are free, the number one freebie is our beach. Public access to ten miles of white sand beach, with temperate water and great waves. Groomed and cleaned every night and the best part is it’s guarded with the “Best Beach Patrol” on the east coast. I’ll have a BLOG on just our Life Guards in the future. OK so here’s the next best free thing to do in OCMD.

The BOARDWALK. Built in 1902 it is one of the best boardwalks in the USA. Walk, bike ride (time restricted) or ride the Tram along the two and three quarter mile Boardwalk. A real Boardwalk made of wood bordered on one side by the Atlantic Ocean and the opposite side by every type of glittering, flashy store that have everything to sell from live Hermit crabs in painted shells to lizards and frogs to every type of T-shirt imaginable.

Having trouble expressing your feelings for someone, or your political views or just what you want to do, look for the perfect T-shirt saying. If you are into fast food, the boardwalk has a tremendous selection of deep fried concoctions you could think of. A few of the shops hand out free samples. Check “The Wrapper”. As the sun goes down the boardwalk entertainers come out. All free (tips accepted). You can be entertained by magicians, jugglers, and a host of singer songwriters and other musical entertainers. The best part of the boardwalk is just to grab a seat on one of the benches and people watch. Thousands of people transverse the boardwalk daily from all walks of life it’s just fun to watch them go by.

Next week I’ll BLOG about more free things that the City of Ocean City sponsors. Also I promise to tell you about the FREE BEER MONEY.

Spring is on the way and not a moment too soon.

The winter has not been kind to the beach but the city is moving tons of sand to make our beach as beautiful as you expect it to be. And it's free. If you surf or body board the inlet beach is for you. The town also has a two block swatch of beach for surfing that moves up and down the entire ten mile beach daily and it's location is posted on the city's web site http://oceancitymd.gov/oc/departments/emergency-services/beach-patrol/. Like our Facebook Page to see pics of changes going on in Ocean City as progress marches on. Also join our twitter account @bestbeacher to get special deals and learn about what's happening at the beach.

Sign up for our newsletter on our main page of our web site and be entered into a drawing for an "offical NFL" Ravens beach towel. Look at our pics on our Pinterest account https://www.pinterest.com/501nbaltimore/beach-things. Keep an eye out for a big announcement about a special promotion we'll run beginning in April.
