Holiday-makers taking a trip to the amazing Ocean City for a vacation will be pleased when they head to this magnificent resort town. This vacation spot is definitely perfect for couples, families and travellers visiting on their own for some relaxing time away. Travellers can very easily wander around on public transport, but many may want to hire a car for the holiday. In the off-season it is easy to find parking spaces, but in the summer time it is difficult due to the amount of traffic that comes into the area. Visitors must consider their options when it comes to parking and work out exactly where they can put their cars during a holiday trip.
A popular destination to visit is the West Ocean City Park and Ride, which is located west of the Route 50 drawbridge. This is perfect for tourists who do not want to bother with sitting in traffic, and just want to park outside the city centre. There are more than 700 free parking spaces here and for a small fee a shuttle bus service transports passengers to two main destinations. These include the South Division Street Transit Center and the Ocean City Factory Outlets in West Ocean City. If tourists plan on using the shuttle frequently they can get coupon books available at City Hall on 3rd Street to help them save some money.
Naturally some travellers may want to choose the city parking lots that can be found on a range of roads including Worcester Street, Dorchester Street, Somerset Street and North Division Street. Street parking is also a possibility but tourists must remember if they do this illegally they will be fined. This type of parking is available near the Ocean City Skate Bowl and at many destinations along the Coastal Highway uptown. Tourists heading into this resort town will find that Ocean City dining is a fabulous experience to enjoy there.
There are many amazing Ocean City Maryland restaurants to head to especially on the boardwalk, which offers a range of top seafood eateries. The Grand Hotel Ocean City has five eateries that all serve a variety of mouth-watering dishes to travellers, and provide a relaxing destination for business or pleasure. This accommodation is superb as it has air-conditioned rooms with many top facilities including a mini-fridge, television and coffee maker. The Acqua Day Spa and the hotel’s fitness centre are wonderful places to relax.
Tourists will definitely have a great time at The Grand Hotel OC MD as it is one of the best places for tourists to enjoy their holiday in Ocean City. The Hugh T. Cropper Inlet Parking Lot is another great place to park, and is found at the southernmost point of Ocean City. It provides easy access to the boardwalk, downtown area and the beach.
