Dewey Beach or Ocean City??

Hi. Was originally going to plan a girl's trip to Ocean City the 2nd weekend in August, but someone recommended Dewey Beach. Do they have a nightlife there? We are not the "sit at a bar type" we like to dance and have fun. Any suggestions, tips and/or advice would be appreciated.

Dewey Beach is known for its nightlife. It's only a couple blocks long, but packed with bars & fun. Ruddertown, Starboard and Bottle & Cork are the iconic places. Check out https://www.deweybeachlife.com

Hi Sabrina. Just so you know, Dewey is about 1/20th the size of Ocean City. It's lots of fun, but tiny and more quaint. Have you ever been to Secrets in OC? Yeah, Dewey is about that big.

Been going to Dewey Beach for 23+ years through my 20's, 30's and 40's. It's about a mile long but as one pointed out lots of bars. You need to hit Jam Session at Bottle & Cork on Saturday at 5pm. Get there early. Lines are long. Off season on a giving weekend is about a couple of hundred residents. That swells to 35,000 in the Summer. There is also Rusty Rudder, Jimmy's, Que Pasa, Starboard, NorthBeach. Lots to chose but be prepared for crowds. I will actually be there myself the 2nd weekend of August.
