More FREE stuff at the Beach

Maria Drakos - Wednesday, May 18, 2016

This week's BLOG will list some more events that are free. These events are sponsored by the city. First is "OC Beach Lights" which is a laser light show that is set to music. Fun for the whole family the show kicks off every Sunday at 9:30,10:00 and 10:30 pm beginning May 28. Just keep an eye out for a 2-story inflated ball on the beach at the end of N. Division St. Each time slot has a different theme with a different musical line. Monday and Tuesday every week beginning July and going till September the beach and boardwalk light up with a fireworks display that is second to none. The display begins around 10:00pm at North Division street. Weather permitting.

If you want to get physical or you just want to watch other people get physical travel down the boards to 27th street for "Family beach Olympics" every Tuesday evening from 6:30 pm till 8:00pm. The fun starts June 14 and continues till August 2. Next are free concerts on the beach at the Caroline Street Stage which is behind the Comfort station. They begin Wednesday at 8:00 pm starting July 13th and continue till August 31. Every type of musical genre is represented from big band swing to rock, country, and reggae. More free music happens at "Sunset Park "on the bayside and South Division St. These concerts are Thursday evenings at 7pm starting the beginning of July. Monday's and Friday's are "Movies on the Beach". Just walk north along the boardwalk from our house to 27th street and you'll see the giant screen.

All these events are within walking distance of our bed and breakfast, but if you want to drive or take the bus uptown to North Side Park there are events up there also. One of the great free events happens on Sunday. "Sundaes in The Park" begin in July at Northside park Sundaes and Free Fireworks make for a fun evening. Of course The Atlantic House Bed and Breakfast is your source for all that is happening on the island. Stay with us and we'll have even more Free Stuff for you. If you stay with us midweek from Sunday through Thursday, we have free passes for a tour and a tasting at "OC Brewing" on Coastal Highway and 56th street. We have your Beer Money. Also have a free round of mini golf amongst the dinosaurs at Nick's Golf on 18th street and Coastal Highway. Finally, if you want to pamper your body with a great massage we have a coupon from OC Massage that saves you anywhere from $10.00 to $20.00.

Planning your Ocean City MD vacation

Maria Drakos - Thursday, March 17, 2016

As the weather gets warmer and our thoughts drift towards our summer vacation let me suggest some activities that are not necessary linked with the beach. Ocean City MD provides vacationers with a host of options that are within walking distance from the Atlantic House Bed and breakfast. Jet skiing rentals, para sailing, bay fishing trips on a head boat, ocean fishing on a deep sea charter, and three or four bicycle rental shops. There are three amazing golf courses within 15 miles. Of course you can just relax and lie on our beach, dig your feet into our warm clean Ocean City sand, ride a wave in the surf, watch for dolphins frolicking, or people watch at the water's edge. The boardwalk is another famous attraction that beckons people to walk it's two and three quarter mile length lined with snack shops, arcades, Trimper rides and amusements and of course great surf shops like Malibu. Josephine and I can direct you to the places that we feel are the best. The amazing thing about Ocean City Maryland is the amount of free activities that happen on the beach. Sunday nights the city presents a laser light show, Monday and Tuesday nights are firework displays, Wednesday are concerts on the ocean beach, and Thursday are concerts at Sunset Park on the bay side of the island. All are walkable from the Atlantic House Bed and Breakfast.

Now let me tell you about some great things to do off the island but still incredibly close. Our favorite is a "Moonlight Paddle” at Ayers Creek Adventures. Imagine you’re in a kayak on a pristine creek. The tranquil waters lapping up against the side of the boat as you glide through the marsh passing egrets, great blue herons and the occasional bald eagle. Watching the sun set over the marsh bathed in the silence that is a respite from the din of the crowds and arcades of the beach. This is far from the finally. As you turn your kayak to return you'll see the moon rising and within minutes you'll be enveloped in a shroud of darkness silhouetted by moonlight paddling on a ribbon of silver with menhaden and snappers jumping out of the water in front of you. Just breathtaking. As you return to the dock a bon fire will be waiting for you along with snacks and conversation with fellow adventures.P.S. your stay at the Atlantic House is discounted if you book any tour with them.

Another beautiful Maryland treasure is Assateague Island. Just twelve miles from The Atlantic House both the State park and the National Seashore boast some of the most beautiful ocean beaches on the east coast.Dunes protect the miles of trails and hammocks that shelter herds of wild ponies. The bay hiking trails offer a glimpse of nature at it’s very best .Loblolly pines ,holly and red cedar are the habitat for white tail and sika deer.The shallow tidal bays are perfect for looking for blue crabs.The ponies are of course the stars of the island . We can’t get enough photos of them . Just check out our gallery to see some of them.
