Campfire on the beach

September closes the door on the lively summer season Ocean City offers, but October rings in a solitary, blissful time of year known by the locals as ‘Second Season’. Where the soft sandy beaches are quiet and sweeping, Ocean City still ensures an experience during the Fall that will fulfill your need for a beach getaway. Relish in a refreshing dip in the sparkling cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the wide-open beaches that have been warming up all year for you. ‘Second Season’ is a new awakening for Ocean City and is offering a variety of perks for travelers like you who want to relax, revitalize and recharge.

This Fall will offer endless events that will make your trip worthwhile. Right down the coast, alongside the inlet, is the home of the annual Sunfest — home to one of Ocean City’s most treasured events for 40 years and counting, happening from Sept. 30 - Oct. 3. With an abundance of art, food vendors that will make your taste buds dance, craft beer, and live music (both local and out-of-state), Sunfest is the perfect event to gather your families and friends to kick off the breezy October season. Cheers with your friends and enjoy a cold pour at the shore! The Shore Craft Beer Fest is making its annual appearance on Oct. 23rd at the scenic Sunset Park and is ready to serve you local brews that will make your stay in Ocean City a ‘hoppy’ one.

Steering away from the festival scene, cruise on down to see the annual Hot Rod Show Oct. 7 - Oct. 10 which is the ultimate event to experience a plethora of classic cars, trucks, customs and more. Just a week after, rev your engines for Corvette Weekend, which will be zooming around the corner on Oct. 15 - Oct. 17 downtown at the inlet.

Want to unwind and discover the once voted coolest small town in the country? Historic Berlin is just a short 15-minute drive outside of Ocean City and the heart for locally-owned shops, restaurants, breweries, and more. Experience all the perks this charming, quaint town has to offer.

Looking for complete isolation with whimsical, wild ponies that roam the beautiful lands and beaches of the Eastern Shore coastline? Assateague Island State Park is a short road trip right outside of Ocean City that will provide you with relaxation, trail hiking, and even camping! With vast, rolling sand dunes, scenic trails that overlook the park, impeccable views, and clear starry skies at night, Assateague is an optimal hangout spot for all who indulge in everything nature.

Since ‘Second Season’ is driven by a variety of happenings, you’ll need a place to stay!

Sand Sculpture

One whiff of that salty sea breeze, and all of a sudden, the warm days as a kid splashing around in the ocean and building sandcastles on the shore comes rushing back to you. There you are, filling up buckets with sand and running back and forth with water to aid in the creation of your masterpiece. Sculpting extravagant sandcastles is a childhood dream. How many towers could you build up? OH, and do not forget the mote!
But who says sandcastles are just for kids! Randy Hofman is a more

Take a good look at the above photo, the one of people enjoying the beach and ocean. The sun and the sand. That picture was taken in late October and those folks are doing the same things as they would in the summer just with more space to move around. If year’s past give us any indication, we are in for another beautiful Indian Summer. Indian Summer you ask, never heard of it? Simply the best way to describe it is ‘ahhhh.’  You would be surprised at the amount of opinions and more

The cherubic winged infant pulls a love arrow from the quiver and draws back the bow, ready and aimed at you. But you’re gone and no longer in the crosshairs because you don’t need to wait for the cupid’s arrow to strike to come to your senses.

As far as big romantic gestures go, cards, chocolate, and flowers are certainly very common ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Not to lessen the sentimental value those things (who doesn’t love chocolate and flowers?), but getting to watch more

Imagine giving up 55% of something that you’ve earned. Your paycheck, your house, your food, or anything else that you have worked hard to earn. Sounds crazy, right?
