All year we wait for the big day. For whatever the reason may be. Wishes and hopes and planning and shopping and tradition. Wishes that it be white, wishes to see loved ones, hopes that, even though we’re late, we can still find a seat in church. Planning that Santa visits and we finally receive that go-cart that we’ve circled in the Sears & Roebuck catalogue since we were five. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year and Christmas receives all the attention that it deserves. With all the focus and attention paid towards the birth of Jesus, we tend to forget a little about the start of the New Year.

Two Thousand Fourteen is upon us people! No kidding. Another year flew by, and while we were busy watching the top 374 internet videos that went viral we forgot to make plans for the New Year’s. By the way, the scary gorilla video was cool but the video of the crooning mother and crying baby made me feel guilty for watching. So if you’re like most of us and forgot, don’t worry, Ocean City, Maryland has you covered. Of course there is fireworks on New Year’s Eve on the Northside of town and tradition tells us that crazy people will be jumping in the chilly grips of the Atlantic Ocean on January 1st , (for a good cause of course) and the Winterfest of Lights is still happening. But if you’re really looking for a great way to bring in twenty fourteen, the Harrison Group & Holiday Inn Oceanfront has got you covered.

Of course the Holiday Inn conference center will provide a great New Year’s Eve party with a festive atmosphere, a delicious meal, and great music and dancing. The Harrison Group and Holiday Inn Oceanfront are also really excited to bring to you the world famous magic of The Evasons. They are a world famous mentalist duo that will thrill you with mind-blowing feats of telepathy and ESP. We will bring you a one of a kind show that you have to see to believe. Amazing entertaining wonderment! These guys even have a review from Johnny Carson for crying out loud! NBC calls them ‘the finest act of its kind in the world!’ It looks to be a wonderful way to bring in 2014! If you’re looking for a more low-key way to celebrate the New Year, the Holiday Inn Boardwalk has a delicious menu, entertainment by John Remy and a Champagne Toast at midnight. Looking to stay the night? Both hotels are offering great room rates too.

Regardless of how you bring in the New Year, The Harrison Group and Ocean City, Maryland wishes everyone a happy holidays and a safe and fruitful twenty-fourteen.

A wise man (Mr. Bob Dylan) once said, ‘these times they are a changin.’ Yet! Even in these a changin times there are a few rules that you can still count on. Such as; what goes up, must come down, all good things must come to an end, and, most importantly, people love photographs.
Indeed, the good that was our 2013 season is coming to an end and you can chalk it up as another great year for the Harrison Group and Ocean City, Maryland. With that said, we would like to thank all of ...read more

With a weather forecast that has this weekend in the 80’s and showing next weekend to be sunny and mid 70’s one could say that Ocean City, Maryland is experiencing quite the ‘Indian Summer.’ Simply the best way to describe it is ‘ahhhh.’  You would be surprised at the amount of opinions and message boards that discuss what an Indian Summer actually is, so to be clear, we here at the Harrison Group will be applying the Webster’s Dictionary definition to our Fall season. A pleasant, ...read more

‘That’s cool.’ or ‘Hey man, cool.’ or ‘Whoa, over there, now that is wicked cool!’ People recognize cool, and for different reasons. Cool can be applied to a wall paper pattern or even to a flying frog being hurled by a rocket (look up Wallops NASA Frog). Everyone is different, and so is their cool perception. Take for instance smart phones. Smart phone companies spend a ton of money making sure their gadget looks cool. You can’t sit through a commercial break without seeing some ...read more

There is a very big, 17th century Spanish ship docked bayside on 3rd Street in Ocean City, Maryland. It is amazing. El Galeon Andalucia is her name and she is magnificent. ‘Galleons’ are Spanish trade ships built and used from 1500 to the mid 1700’s. Consider the Andalucia a ‘newer body style’ to the boats Ferdinand Magellan used to first circumnavigate the planet. To describe it to someone that has not seen it is a little hard. She has six decks, 12 guns, 3 masts, seven sails, 170 ...read more

ROADTRIPPING IS THE BEST. It’s been around for a long time. Before the T-Model Ford, Chevy Corvette, the ‘Oregon Trail,’ and even before hippies started tricking out their air-cooled VW Vanagons, road trips have been an American favorite.  Countless movies, songs and books have been based on it. Look up Kerouac’s ‘On The Road.’ Arguably one of the most famous road trips in American History is when Sacagawea led those two other guys (what’s their names again?) across North America in ...read more

This upcoming Monday, is, THE BIG ONE. Before the sun begins to peak it’s rays above the horizon, before the rooster crows or the hound howls, and most likely, even before your first cup of coffee, anglers will have set out from Harbour Island, Ocean City on an adventure. An adventure for treasure. For these adventurers, like it has been for many years, the treasure they seek lies beneath the sea. But it is not gold or relics of old, it’s the creatures that live within it. The White ...read more

The Global Soap Project, Hilton Suites Participates

You might be surprised to learn that the leading causes of death for children globally are hygiene-related illnesses, which claim more than 2.4 million lives each year.  That’s nearly one-third of all child deaths.  Handwashing with soap is the single most effective way to prevent those deaths. In fact, soap is more effective than vaccines, medications, or clean water initiatives alone. Research has shown that soap can reduce the morbidity rates by more than 47% — meaning that ...read more

RAMPS. In roughly two weeks the Ocean City beaches will be full of these things. Concrete ramps, wooden ramps, steel ramps, vert ramps, kicker ramps, spine ramps, natural moving water ramps (waves) and every other kinda ramp in between. We can rest assure that Evel Knievel will be smiling down on Ocean City during Dew Tour weekend. No, Evel didn’t invent the ramp, or the wheel, but he was the first to cast the spell of RADICAL upon these simple machines. What he did was true magic ...read more

Red Bull Helicopter going inverted during the air show.

Those seeking a more birds eye view, the Drop Zone and the Club ...read more
