What time of year do you think is the best to come enjoy the beach?

I love the second week in September.  The water is still warm, everything is still open and there are no crowds. It is an amazing time in OC!

Before I moved here full-time, my favorite time to visit in the warmer months was late August/early September when it was still plenty warm for the beach but most of the crowds had left. I also liked coming in January in hopes of seeing Ocean City in the snow, so pretty! But honestly, now that I live here full-time, there's not a bad time to visit. May or September though would probably be your best bets to enjoy the beach with fewer people.

Well, for me it's anytime I can get away and put my feet in the sand at Ocean City.

My family tries to visit OC multiple times a year but I enjoy my July trip and Bike Week(September) the most.

I like late August and early September. The weather is still really nice, the water is warm, the lifeguards are on duty, almost everything is open, and the crowds and prices are down!

The summer is the best time.  August is my favorite month - I like warmer weather.  September is a great month as well - it is warm and not crowded. Any month can be fun, but the summer is what makes Ocean City special.

My favorite time of year is the end of August or early September.  The water is at its warmest, the weather is usually nice and hot, and there is still plenty to do.  You can check out events that are going on in OC year round at http://www.ococean.com/events

But honestly..........any time of year is great to go to the beach!!
