Ocean City's beach is cleaner than some we have been to. From Memorial Day to Labor Day they "groom" it nightly. Not sure what they do in the off season. You can search for seashells, watch the seagulls browse, do sand art, watch boats come...More

Very nice beach that is very clean. I stayed in a hotel on the beach and I found that the winter time is one of the best for the beach. No crowds and lots of treasures.

Beautifully kept beach with all the magic you can imagine. One never knows what the ocean will bring to your feet, may it be a shell, a live crab, or other worldly treasures!

This beach and town are the cleanest I've ever visited. This is our spring, summer, call and winter vacation destination.

The beach is clean and well liked after. Easily accessed from the broad walk. The water is freezing!

Very Expensive but to some degree beautiful, however several homeless people wander the boardwalk looking through trash cans and eating food to begging for money.

We have been coming here since 2003 as a family, and there is no other place we would rather be. Scenic, family-friendly and quiet (especially away from the boardwalk). Beaches are clean, plenty of shops in case you forget some necessities! You can take the...More

No but if you don't know what to wear, there are plenty of beachwear establishments in OC and on the boardwalk to help you find the perfect suit.

There are people who bike from Ocean City to Assateague, but they share the road with the cars. No dedicated bike lane.
