OCEAN CITY, MARYLAND- THE CRAB CAPITAL SHOWS US A GOOD TIME

Ocean City, Maryland is a 4-5 hour drive from New York down the eastern seaboard of the United States. On the way you can stop in Atlantic City or Rehoboth. It may not be the classiest vacation, but its definitely a good time.

Seaside crabshacks, famous donuts, fresh oysters and seafood and dozens of tacky bars. Plus the pier and beach in Ocean City offer hours of fun for kids and big kids alike. No matter what you like, live music and dancing, a beer or margarita watching the sunset, or an all you can eat blue crab dinner, you’ll find a fun time for a reasonable price in Ocean City. Go seafood if you want to stay healthy and maybe leave a little space for the that 10% naughty treat.

Remember to bring your passport if you don’t have a US driver’s license since the bars here are vigilant on underage drinking and are unmerciful for those with a New Zealand License (woops!).
