Clack, clack, clack. Whoosh. Jingle and cha-ching! For the thousands who have been vacationing in Ocean City, Maryland, since childhood, the sounds of the boardwalk evoke nostalgia for summer holidays spent lounging by the sea, filling up on saltwater taffy, and playing Skeeball in darkened arcades. Whether you are one of the many who return year after year or are new to this wonderful world, there is one thing you are sure to notice on America’s favorite boardwalk: dogs love it as much as their people do. There are plenty of pet-friendly hotels in Ocean City, MD to accommodate them, so go ahead, get excited. We know your dog will!
Novel smells wafting along salty breezes, ocean waves that are always up for a game of “keep away,” and seemingly endless amounts of sand for digging—the Maryland seashore is simply heaven for your furry family members. No one loves getting back to the earth more than Fido, so don’t leave him behind on your next trip. You can pop up your “pup” tent on select sites in Assateague State Park or make a reservation at Castaways RV Resort & Campground. Spend your vacation as nature intended: exploring the beaches by day and howling at the moon by night. Your dog’s wagging tail and smiling face will make this getaway one for the scrapbook.
Well, how much time do you have? Wherever you look, you’ll find seafood so fresh, it’s like it jumped out of the ocean right onto your plate. From dining with your toes in the sand to lively music joints, you and your furry friend will never want for mouthwatering meals—including breakfast. When you awaken at pet-friendly rentals in Ocean City, snuggle under the covers and order up room service to start the day right.
After a morning spent frolicking at Assateague National Seashore or enjoying the trails of Northside Park, you’ll probably have a pooped pooch. Grab a table on the beach at Macky's Bayside Bar & Grill and let him relax in the sand—and order something from the mutt menu. Rum bucket and crab cakes for you, doggie sliders for you-know-who, and ocean waves lapping the shore. This is quintessential Ocean City.
What’s even more laid-back than beachfront dining with your pup? How about not even having to leave your hotel? At Clarion Resort Fontainebleau, you can sleep in, then mosey on down to Lenny’s Beach Bar & Grill and greet the day with a pound of shrimp steamed up with Old Bay seasoning and onions. Nothing says “Maryland brunch” quite like Old Bay in the morning.
