Baltimore, Washington, and Philadephia are each about a 3 hour drive from OC and are the closest major cities to OC. Annapolis is about 2.25 hours away and is a notable but smaller city. Wilmington DE is about 2.5 hours away. The closest "city" is Salisbury, MD which is a fairly small city about 35 miles from OC.

I agree with Karl on his summary.  The other larger cities on the Eastern Shore are Easton, Cambridge and then Salisbury.  These are in order as you drive south on Rt 50 to Ocean City.  Of those three Salisbury is the largest.

A little fun fact, Ocean City is the second largest city in Maryland during the months of July-August by population because of all the people who come to the beach to vacation there.
