The holidays can be such a wonderful time of year. There’s bright, twinkling lights glimmering against the snow, deliciously filling meals, and abundant baked goods. Then again, there’s a whole lot of stress that comes with this time of year as well. I mean, how many family members actually lift a finger to help prepare the meal, set the table, or do the dishes afterwards? The roads fill up with holiday shoppers driving like maniacs to get the best sales as if shopping online never existed. Finding the right gifts for everyone can be as impossible as putting up with all the family drama, and there never seems to be enough time in a day to get it all done. If you’re feeling stressed out this holiday season and need something a little more satisfying than figgy pudding (or spiked eggnog) to get you through it, why not try taking a vacation for the holidays?
I know, I know, your family probably won’t be too open to the idea of you relaxing in a luxurious hotel while they listen to that one uncle’s awful stories, but you could be walking down the shoreline without a care in the world. We have Ocean City Maryland hotels on the beach that have every accommodation you’ll need to let the stress of the season melt away. Are you wondering who in their right mind would head to Ocean City during the winter? The weather here is actually wonderful this time of year. Granted, you won’t be working on your tan in a bikini, but there is definitely something to be said for a walk on the beach in a comfy sweater. The air is crisp and clean, the water looks as beautiful as ever, and you can avoid the large crowds that tourists create. Plus, it’s cheaper than the summer peak season! There is a lot to do here besides soak in the sun. For instance…
If you’re tired of the same old holiday meal then skip it, and enjoy Finnigan’s Irish Pub and Eatery instead. They have a spectacular breakfast buffet that puts the typical hotel’s to shame. The lunch menu features favorites from the locals in the area, and Happy Hour features 75¢ wings paired with $2 domestic drafts. I bet you can’t get that at Mom’s house! Take advantage of their full service bar for holiday drink specials and play a little pool while you’re at it, or enjoy our live entertainment. Have fun! If you’re bringing little ones along, Finnigan’s offers a delightful kid’s menu and great meals the whole family can enjoy.
Are you a golfer by chance? If so, we have 18 championship golf courses that are sure to challenge and delight the avid player. Look into our special packages to save on your visit like the 4th night free deal, or the Tour of the Shore package. We’re happy to accommodate groups as well!
If it’s a more laid back vacation that you’re looking for, we have 194 deluxe rooms all equipped with Tempur-Pedic mattresses, five Jacuzzi rooms with private balconies, fully equipped kitchens, and flat screens to keep you caught up on all your favorite shows. If you haven’t slept on a Tempur-Pedic bed yet, prepare yourself for one the best night’s sleep of your life. We are only one block away from the beach, and do have a private Bayfront beach as well. If you do like to swim we have an indoor heated pool, and an outdoor rooftop pool complete with a bar and a spectacular view of the bay. All of this, of course, comes with free Wi-Fi, parking, and laundry. We have everything you need to kick your shoes off, sit back, and take a load off of your shoulders.
Now, if you’ve been to Ocean City before you know that there are a ton of fun spots in the city. If you like to go out and let loose then you’re in luck. We are adjacent to the city’s hottest night clubs, and a short walk away from game and entertainment centers, Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum and mirror maze, Assateague Federal Park’s wild ponies, great fishing spots, the famous boardwalk, and all of the great shops and outlets located in the area. Hit up some of the local eateries to dine on fresh caught fish, Delmarva fried chicken, and those to die for Maryland crab cakes. You can learn about the town’s history at the Life-Saving Station Museum, head over to Gold Coast mall for some serious shopping, or enjoy nature’s beauty at Northside Park. There’s more than enough here to keep anyone busy during their stay, and give them a great time that they won’t soon forget.
