Any tips for Air Show weekend? Specifically how hard is it to get space on the beach. We are staying at the Quality Inn Boardwalk.Submitted by Debbie C, Steelton PA on January 30, 2020
My best advice is to spend the money and buy a drop zone ticket. It makes a difference if you are a true fan. There is space available all along the beach, but the drop zone is like having front row tickets.View all answers to this question (5) »

Are there any street legal golf carts or electric vehicles that can be rented for the week so my group can shuttle around if we stay at a location 2 miles from the beach? Thank you!Submitted by Ashlea R, PITTSBURGH PA on January 14, 2020
There are no street legal carts or such that can used. You could try and rent scooters or mopeds for the week from Continental Cycles. You could also just take a car or cab to the beach. It would not be expensive and may be easier than renting scooters.View all answers to this question (5) »

What are some tips you have when visiting Ocean City?Submitted by Ryan F, Baltimore MD on January 6, 2020
My tips really depend on when you are coming, what your interests are, and the demographics of the group you are travelling with. My more general tips are:
- Check the OCOcean Events page to see what is going on when you plan to be in OC.
- Once you get into town, be sure to stop at the Visitor's Center at the south end of the Conventions Center at 40th Street to get lots of guide books, information, coupons, and deals.
