Nature Sightseeing on the Eastern Shore

While you’re here, you’ll want to visit Assateague National Seashore and search for our famous Wild Ponies. You can visit Assateague from the Virginia side OR the Maryland side, so it’s a must regardless of which town you’re visiting! Not only do our Ponies seem to be out and about more this time of year, you’ll discover other Off-season beauty like Snow Geese, the Snowy Owl, and maybe even a Seal if you’re lucky! Learn about our history at the Visitor Center, or climb to the top of Assateague Lighthouse on the Virginia side for a View you won’t soon forget.

Springtime at the Beach

St. Patrick’s Day is Spring’s way of announcing that Summer is on the way! Take a stroll on the Beach to take in that salty, sweet sea breeze – and bonus, the shelling is awesome this time of year thanks to a few Winter storms. Shops are still running their off-season sales, and you won’t believe the specials many Local Restaurants run this time of year. Want to do your own cooking with an Ocean View? Staying in a Chincoteague or Ocean City Vacation Rental truly lets you “Live Like a Local” – sooo much better than a hotel.

As always, our Guest Experience Specialists are here to help you plan the perfect getaway – we know all the ins and outs – we’ve got you covered! AND, all Seaside Vacations’ Guests enjoy Free Early Check-in and Late Check-out this fun-filled weekend! Make your own Luck o’the Irish this March – get lucky with a Green Beach Getaway!

Spend Thanksgiving in Ocean City, Maryland, with the Family

Are you and your family looking to escape from life at home this Thanksgiving week? If you are, allow us to share how your family can enjoy a quiet Thanksgiving here in Ocean City, Maryland. Staying in one of our Ocean City vacation rentals will keep you and your family together this year. Let’s look below at how you and your family can escape to Ocean City this Thanksgiving with the family.

Plenty of Room

Staying in one of our Ocean City Maryland, vacation rentals will allow the whole family to tag along. We have many homes that can sleep four people up to 12 people in the family. That means that if you want to bring along the grandparents or even some close friends, you’d all have your own space. All of our homes also have enough bathrooms where you won’t have to worry about who was in the bathroom for a long time. The living space in our vacation rentals is large enough, where everyone will have somewhere to sit. Think of how this vacation will become a memorable Thanksgiving Day it will be.

Another reason why you should stay in one of our Ocean City Maryland vacation rentals is the large kitchens. When you stay in a hotel, you won’t have the option of having a full-size kitchen to cook in. You will find that our rentals all supply the necessary pots and pans, including plenty of dishes for you to use. After you check-in, head on over to the grocery store to get all the ingredients you’ll need to cook Thanksgiving Dinner this year.

While there are many other reasons why you should spend Thanksgiving in Ocean City, Maryland, these are a few we wanted to share with you. If you haven’t booked your next vacation to stay with us in one of our Ocean City, Maryland vacation rentals, now is the time. We hope to see you and your family this Thanksgiving making new memories together!
