Normally we go to OC the week after Labor Day to avoid crowds. What are crowds like during the week after Memorial Day?

The week after Memorial Day should be less crowded. Senior week usually starts the first week in June but all depends on when they are done so there may be some there after Memorial Day.

Because most schools are still in session, the crowds after Memorial Day are still fairly light. Busier than early September, but much lighter than late June to mid-August.

Hi Mark, the week after Memorial Day tends to be a bit quieter as many people have not come for summer vacation. I've been before and I'd check it out and see how you like it. for more information visit http://www.ococean.com

The crowds are about the same, probably slightly less.  Ocean City really does not get busy until July and the crowds end in August.  There is a gradual ramp up and a steep ramp down in terms of people.  Everything is open though as of May 1 and closes around October 15th.

The crowds are not too bad as most kids are still in school  But the ocean water is a little cooler right after Memorial Day versus Labor Day.

Memorial Day weekend kicks off the summer season but the weeks after are usually not real busy yet. Ocean City tends to start feeling busy around mid June. Also something to consider is the ocean temp as the ocean water is still on the chilly side.
