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?

Many things will be open when you come in May. If you get there the weekend before, Springfest is going on 7-10 May. Many boardwalk businesses will be open, and some amusements will be open on a limited basis, Mini golf courses will be open. Most restaurants will be open. You will also be able to get great, fresh seafood many places around town. Martin Fish Company at the southeast end of the commercial harbor in West OC is a great source of fresh fish and seafood to cook yourself. They are open year-round.

It will still be a lot of fun as long as the weather is nice! If you are able to come up the weekend before the 11th, you can check out Springfest, our signature event to kick off the summer season.

 A lot depends on when you come down in May. If you come near the end of the month, everything will be open and should be crazy busy. (Book your hotel here now!) If you are coming at the beginning or middle, 90% of everything will be open.  Just know the ocean will be chilly! Enjoy OC!

I agree with Savas, just about everything will be open so you will have a blast just like in July.

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!
