Are emotional support animals allowed on the beach in May?

Submitted by Claudia C, Germantown MD on February 20, 2020

No they are not, sorry.  Dogs in strollers or other conveyances are also not allowed from May through September.  Dogs are allowed on the beach from October through April though.

I want to rent a motorized scooter for the boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland. Where do I rent them from?

Submitted by Jackie D, Glen Burnie MD on February 3, 2020

Boardwalk Mobility is your best bet.  They are located on the Boardwalk and take reservations.

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.

Where can I store my boat trailer during the summer for a low cost and where can I store a boat in winter? 

Submitted by Warren S, Ocean city MD on January 14, 2020

You best bet is to call any of the self-storage places in West Ocean City or any local marinas.  You have many storage options.

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.

Looking to head down the week of May 11th. We have visited before in July and had a blast. What can we expect traveling down in May? - Fresh seafood? Attractions open?

Submitted by Jill P, Sherman NY on January 13, 2020

You will find 90% of Ocean City open and ready for fun!  The summer season really starts on May 1st and many places are open year-round now.  I am confident you will have a great time!

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:

- Look through OCOcean.com and search or browse our OC Insiders posts for more info to find out almost anything you could want to know about Ocean City.

- 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.

OC Has lots of things you can do for free. The beach and boardwalk are always free and there are tons of free events too, especially in season
