  1. Distancing on the Boardwalk

At Boardwalk Hotel Group, it’s no secret that we love the boardwalk. This is exactly why we think that enjoying a stroll down the classic Ocean City boards is one of the best ways to enjoy yourself while keeping a safe distance from others! Enjoy 3 miles of OCMD’s award-winning boardwalk, home to amazing restaurants, attractions, and shops. The Boardwalk is open 24/7 with each shop and stop having its own individual schedule. Along the boardwalk, you’ll find Ocean City favorites such as Thrasher’s Fries, Jolly Roger at the Pier, Fisher’s Popcorn, Dolle’s Candyland, The Kite Loft, and so much more!


  1. Enjoy Classic Ocean City Bike Ride

What’s your favorite activity before you hit the waves? There’s nothing better than an early morning bike ride down the classic Ocean City boardwalk to start your day at the beach off right! Not an early bird? No problem in OCMD, for the duration of summer, bicycles are now allowed on the Boardwalk until 2:00 pm daily, per executive order by the Ocean City Mayor!

Bring your own ride from home, or, check out local bike shops to rent your wheels. Our personal favorite local shop? Dandy Don’s Bike Rentals! Dandy Don’s is conveniently located in the same building as the Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel, and offers a wide variety of bicycles for everyone, including beach cruisers, surreys, banana bikes, and Ocean City’s only “Boardwalk Cars”!

  1. Carryout Restaurants

Enjoy a bite to eat at Ocean City’s famous restaurants and eateries offering carryout or outdoor dining! Looking for the best place to dine during your vacation? Our favorites include Brother’s Bistro at the Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel for some of the best Italian food in OCMD. As well as the Anchor Restaurant, serving up breakfast, lunch, and dinner right next to the Days Inn Oceanfront! Interested in exploring other eateries? Ask our staff at the front desk! They’ll be happy to give you tips on local favorites and must-tries while in town!

  1. Beach Days with the Family

No trip to the beach is complete without spending a day actually at the beach! Dip your toes in the sand or wade on out, with 10-miles of beautifully maintained sand, the Ocean City beach is one of the best places to practice social distancing in town! Listen to the waves crashing down as you perfect your tan and build sandcastles with the kiddos.

Pro Tip: Book with any of the Boardwalk Hotel Group hotels, and you’ll never have to worry about lugging your beach toys across town. Just step out of your hotel, cross the boards, and hit the sand!
