As Ocean City locals and regulars will tell you, a North Ocean City vacation rental is an excellent choice for your next beach vacation. While the boardwalk is several miles down the road, it’s not a difficult drive, and you’ll be able to spend plenty of time there if desired. When you’re not out enjoying Thrasher fries on the boardwalk, enjoy the north side of town’s beaches like Northside Park---which provide a little more breathing room than those near the main attractions. There’s no shortage of restaurants or watersports, either. North Ocean City is waiting for you---book your condo rental today!
Dining and activities near your North Ocean City vacation rental
Seafood and oceanview dining are prevalent in North Ocean City for obvious reasons---you’re here because you want to enjoy the beach! Try local favorite Longboard Cafe, a surf-themed restaurant boasting great burgers and seafood that’s been acclaimed by several publications. Right down the road, the Original Crabcake Factory serves all manner of crab-centric dishes, as well as a beloved Bloody Mary. Ropewalk is a North Ocean City favorite for families, with extensive outdoor seating, firepits, and a bayfront deck. For an upscale twist on seafood, try Hooked, a neighborhood staple for a nice night out.
North Ocean City isn’t just known for its seafood, though: you’ll find several amazing options for deli sandwiches and Italian food to satisfy your post-beach cravings. Primo Hoagies and DeVito’s Italian Deli are two of your most delicious options for sandwiches, while Grotto Pizza serves fresh, cheesy pies. Try Trattoria Lombardy for a fine dining experience that’s all North Ocean City.
Want to catch the latest blockbuster? In North Ocean City, you can choose between Fox Gold Coast and Sun & Surf Cinema for your movie night. If you’d rather spend the afternoon or evening out in the fresh air, take your pick between Old Pro minigolf, a classic North Ocean City establishment, or the ever-popular Lost Treasure minigolf. Northside Park offers a playground, green lawns, picnic tables, and plenty of space for the kids to burn off that extra energy.
Beaches on the North side of Ocean City
If you’re staying in North OC for the beaches, you won’t be disappointed. This end of the island is known for being, quite simply, less crowded, and the entire shoreline is sandy and appealing. Whether you’re staying at an oceanfront condo or a home nearby, odds are you’ll be able to walk to the golden shore (and spend as much time in the sun as you’d like). Simply bring a towel and some sunscreen, and you’re all set for a blissful day on the beach in North Ocean City.
Our North Ocean City condo rentals and beach houses
We host an array of North Ocean City vacation experiences, from oceanfront condo rentals to luxe beach houses. You’ll have seemingly infinite options for your Ocean City vacation rental choice, but Camelot condominiums is a great place to start: a massive tennis court, shared pool, and direct shore access make our OC condos here an excellent choice. Try Braemar Towers or Ocean Place for an equally lovely oceanfront condo rental. Our Oceanwalk East properties sit right on the beach, too, and are within easy walking distance of Northside Park. Carousel is an especially fun place to stay, with an on-site ice rink and summer movies on the beach. These are just a few of the resort properties where Vacasa has North Ocean City condo rentals---and that’s not even accounting for all the lovely beach houses we offer!
Things to do near the Boardwalk
When you’re ready for a day down at the legendary Boardwalk, it’s only a short drive down the road. Prepare for plenty of rides, like the 100-year-old carousel at Trimper’s, and tons of saltwater taffy. If you prefer salty snacks to sweet ones, Thrasher’s french fries are a must-try. For a classic Ocean City experience, rent a bike and ride down the boardwalk. Don’t worry; you can always cool off in the waves if you get too warm!
Our North Ocean City vacation rentals offer an enticing beach experience where you can enjoy all the fun without fighting crowds. Browse our selection of beach houses and condo rentals and book your next OC getaway with Vacasa!
