From the website you can also access discounts to many of the member businesses, see upcoming events in the area and get detailed information on the walking tour of the Historic Downtown.
Historic Downtown Walking Tour
The Tours' principal idea is to address the interesting facts that aren't initially obvious about Ocean City, besides the obvious and most familiar attractions such as the delicious and fun restaurants, the amusements, hotels and of course, the ocean views. How much do you know about the unique role Ocean City, Maryland has played in the nation's history? The endless stories and adventures the ocean would be able to tell you about if it had the ability to express in spoken word, These are some of the things you will learn on the walking tour, since neither the ocean nor the land are able to bring us the facts, we rely on the voice of the local historians who have recorded and remembered the experiences of those who lived them.
As well as a spoken tour you will be given a brochure titled ‘Walking Tour of Historic Downtown Ocean City, Maryland’ provided by The Downtown Association of Ocean City. The brochure is a guide that points out landmarks of historical interest in the downtown area, providing interesting facts about each location. A brief history of the island is included too. The Walking Tour brochure also has an easy to follow map for the use of pedestrians or even drivers.
You can get a copy of the brochure at Visitor Information Centers throughout the state of Maryland. And, you may obtain a copy from the office of the Downtown Association located at 1101B N. Philadelphia Ave., Ocean City, MD.
The business directories are separated into four categories.
- Accommodations members
