2. Staying Socially Distant at the Beach: No trip to Ocean City is complete without a day spent at the beach. With 10-miles of beautifully maintained sand that’s ready for fun, the beach is one of the best places to practice social distancing in OCMD! Relax with your toes in the sand and listen to the waves crashing down around you as you perfect your tan and get lost in your current beach-read. Or, head into the water to cool down and swim in the saltwater.

3. Bike Rides Through Town: Let the wind blow through your hair with one of our favorite summer activities, bike rides throughout Ocean City! Bring your own wheels or rent a bike from a shop in town and enjoy extended biking hours on the boardwalk, from 2 am to 2 pm, Monday-Sunday. Or, take a relaxing ride at Northside Park, located at 125th St.

4. Distancing on the Boardwalk: Keep your distance on the boardwalk and enjoy 3 miles of OCMD’s award-winning boardwalk. Home to fabulous restaurants, attractions, and shops, the boardwalk is open 24/7, with each shop and stop having its own individual schedule.
