We're planning a trip to Ocean City in the beginning of June. I was wondering if you knew the dates of Beach Week (for recent Graduates)?

The Laurel Recovery Center often posts good info about Sessions By the Sea. It is not posted yet, but keep watching their website for info. The date for 2018 Session by the Sea has not been announced yet, but it is usually the weekend after Labor Day, which would make it 11-12 September 2018. Dates are usually announced by mid-May.

If they are pets , no.   Unless the dog is a registered service dog with credentials (not emotional support animals) no dogs are allowed on public transportation, and they are also NOT permitted on either the beach or the boardwalk from May 1 to October 1.  This includes dogs on leashes, on strollers, or carried.  And dogs must be on a leash at all other times outside of your condo or hotel.

The  lifeguards begin their daily duties on May 26th this year . Please stay out of the ocean until then for your own safety.

Where's the best place to view the Ocean from your vehicle? It's supposed to rain when we visit, but we were hoping to sit in the back of our car and listen to the ocean, see the seagulls and smell the fresh air! Is there a place in/near Ocean City that allows driving on the beach?

I bought some wooden flowers from a vendor, and would like to buy more but I don't know how to find her. Do you know where I can find a vendors list from Springfest?

Yes, there are rental boxes every few blocks along the west edge of the beach, just east of the dunes or boardwalk. Look for the white or blue boxes. Prices will be about $16/day for umbrellas (about $70/week) and about $8/day ($40/week) for chairs. Prices vary a little bit among operators.

Hi! Can I bring a 10x010 tent on the OCMD beach? Thanks!

Yes you can. A note of caution be careful on windy days, I have seen people hurt by tents/canopies that are secured well.

Enjoy!
