While you’re on vacation, relaxing and enjoying your home away from home, it’s important that you feel comfortable and safe. Luckily, there are so many fun activities in Ocean City to enjoy while remaining physically distant.

Enjoy Local Food:

- Ocean City restaurants are allowed to serve in outdoor dining spaces. Requirements include appropriately-distanced table seating, proper sanitation and other precautionary measures. Give your favorite spot a call to see if they have outdoor dining available.

- Don’t want to dine in? Have a picnic on the beach or at Northside Park with carryout from one of your favorite restaurants in Ocean City.

- Grab some crabs and shrimp from your favorite seafood restaurant and have an at-home seafood feast! Don’t forget your crab mallets and brown paper for the ultimate experience!

- A dozen donuts or an acai bowl combined with a sunrise make for a sweet start to your day! Take your treat to watch the sunrise on the beach to achieve total bliss.

Have an Outdoors Adventure:

- If you’ve missed surfing or if you’re wanting to learn to surf, then grab a surfboard rental from K-Coast Surf Shop or even take a lesson!

- Stay hundreds of feet up, up and away from the crowds when you go parasailing! Or, fly past others and enjoy views of the back bays by renting a jet ski! Your selection of water activities is endless.
