Nice wide beach. Great boardwalk adjacent. Clean beach. Lifeguards on duty starting at 10. Waves generally aren't too big, but fun size

Love the beaches at Ocean City. Clean and very wide. Mid to late Sept. is a great time to visit...no crowds and still warm temps. Just keep an eye on the fickle weather...hurricane season.

So many options for accomodations, tons of restaurants, and lots of shopping. Good night life, too. Almost always someone out and about. You can walk, bike, relax, swim, boat, fish. Stay busy or relax! I would go back!

No but if you don't know what to wear, there are plenty of beachwear establishments in OC and on the boardwalk to help you find the perfect suit.

There are people who bike from Ocean City to Assateague, but they share the road with the cars. No dedicated bike lane.
