Ocean City Boardwalk
Known as one of the best and most exciting boardwalks in America, the Ocean City Boardwalk will definitely not disappoint! This storied wooden walkway saw it's beginning around 1902 when local businessmen decided they needed a path with an ocean view when walking to and from work daily. Soon 3 miles of 'highly concentrated fun' was born, the boardwalk filled with eateries, shops, and rides. Today you can shop for souvenirs and gifts, eat delicious Maryland crabcakes or Delmarva fried chicken, or enjoy the views from the Ferris Wheel!
Chesapeake Ghost Walk
The Ocean City Ghost Walk will lead your group along a trail of haunted properties within the historic district of Old Ocean City. On this 1.5 hour tour, you will hear about child spirits within the life-saving station, the local candy-loving ghost, the infamous Crying Indian, and much more. You will be stopping outside sites such as Trimper Amusements, the Atlantic Hotel, Plim Plaza, and more. This tour runs between the Ocean City Inlet and 4th Street, so be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes!

OC Beach Lights
Each night during the summer months in Ocean City locals and guests alike can enjoy the OC Beach Lights, an exciting display of vibrant dancing lights along the beach. This nightly light display happens on the boardwalk near North Division Street. It happens each year in late May through early September. The show takes place beginning at 9 pm and ending at 11 pm.
OC Life Saving Station Museum
Visitors to Ocean City’s tidy seaside showplace will experience while wandering amongst the museum’s permanent collections and special exhibits, a fascinating history of metamorphosis from a small fishing town to a favorite world-class resort destination. Experience all the magic and wonder of the Ocean City Boardwalk of yesteryear as you chuckle with Laughing Sal and Bruno; let your imagination run wild as you encounter artifacts recovered from tragic wreckage of vessels long lost at sea; slip into the briny deep of the waters just offshore and meet an ever-changing menagerie of indigenous marine life with a visit to the Aquarium Room.
Ripley's Believe It or Not
When it comes to the business of the odd, record-breaking, and shocking, Ripley's Believe It or Not is the master! This popular attraction franchise is one of the most well-known names in entertainment. It was founded by none other than Robert Ripley, eccentric lover of everything bizarre and unbelievable.
SUP Walk on Water
We highly suggest you rent a board while in Ocean City and give it a try, touring the scenic waters near Assateague Island. The excursions offered by the company usually take around 2 hours and guide you through various marshes, bays, and serene coves. You will see plenty of wildlife along the way, such as eagles, pelicans, and Assateague Island's famous wild ponies. So what exactly is SUP? Stand Up Paddleboarding. This activity is done on a 9-11 foot surfboard with a wide and stable top. You stand on it and use a one-bladed paddle, with your feet parallel, and use your core to stabilize on the water. It is a full-body workout for any fitness level, though it can still be a relaxing, slow-paced experience once you get the hang of it.
Free Movies on the Beach
From early June to late August you can enjoy family-friendly blockbuster hits from the comfort of the sand, just bring a chair or blanket! The movies happen each Monday and Friday at 27th Street Beach and each Wednesday at the Carousel Hotel. The beach movies are weather dependent, but it is likely that they would be moved to the Carousel Hotel if the weather is inclement on the days it was scheduled. Enjoy family-friendly selections both old and new, some feature movies this past year including Back to the Future, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, CoCo, and Frozen.
Your Assateague Adventure cruise will be interactive and narrated, allowing you to insightfully explore Assateague Island and all of its natural inhabitants. The 80-minute cruise will navigate Ocean City's fishing harbor, allow you to see and hold local marine wildlife, see the famous Assateague Island wild ponies, bird watch, and learn all you can about this unique coastal eco-system!
Frontier Town High Ropes
This exciting recreation option allows guests to zip through the woods with a zip line and suspended bridge obstacle course. The experience is 'an exhilarating way to experience the great outdoors', offering up 3 separate courses of varying difficulty levels. Each course has a series of bridges between platforms made of ropes, caple, ziplines, and challenging wood configurations. If you make it through all three courses you will have conquered 47 total obstacles and over 1200 feet of zip lines each ranging 12-40 feet high!
Frontier Town Water Park
The perfect place to cool off, travelers of all ages hightail it to this family-friendly playground-in-a-campground with a distinctly vintage Western theme, where a laid-back, traditional menu of slides, tubes and splash pools entice overheated Cowpokes to kick off their boots and get good and wet! Red Bird’s Mountain, the Tubin’ Flume Ride, Lazy River, and the Waterin’ Hole all provide plenty of good ol’ soak time. Pards hankerin’ for a little mini golf will want to mosey over to Cowboy’s well-groomed 18 hole challenge to hone their game.
NASA Wallops Flight Facility
Your student group is going to love the opportunity to get to explore the NASA Wallops Flight Facility, NASA's only owned and operated launch range located on the Eastern shore of Virginia. See exhibits covering aeronautics, orbital and suborbital rockets, science balloons, current missions, and the facility's history, then head to the onsite auditorium or observation deck. The observation deck serves as a viewing site for rocket launches from Wallop Island. There are several free programs, field trip opportunities, events and group tours available here, as well as a fun onsite gift shop.
