Winter is a quieter time in Ocean City. Without the hustle and bustle of the summer, the community slows down and comes together. I compiled a list of fun activities throughout the area for you and your family.

Enjoy Local Art
Ocean City takes great pride in our local art movement. We offer a variety of exciting and culturally rich opportunities year-round. Located on 94th St, The Ocean City Center for the Arts features a spacious two-story gallery, a pottery studio, classrooms, art library and five working artist studios. The galleries display new exhibits of regional and local artists monthly, some of whom are Art League of Ocean City members.
The Great Outdoors
While the weather may discourage sunning on the sand, you will find many locals walking the beach daily. And between Labor Day and Memorial Day, you are allowed to walk your dog on the beach and boardwalk. You can also enjoy the local trails throughout Assateague or bike on the boardwalk.
Chilly, windy days lend themselves to indoor fun. Luckily, Ocean City offers several indoor activities from date night to fun for the whole family.
