Vacation Guide

coverFirst published in 1953, the Guide has consistently been the most asked for piece of literature among visitors to Ocean City. This comprehensive resource is full of valuable information and a collection of advertisements featuring hotels, motels, realtors, campgrounds, restaurants, amusements, golf courses, shopping and more. Most valued by tourists is the ease of having all information for planning their family vacation at their fingertips in one easy to navigate publication.

Over 225,000 Guides are printed annually and distributed to perspective vacationers throughout the region and Canada via hundreds of AAA offices and welcome centers in MD, DE, VA, NY, NJ, OH, PA and Canada. In addition, thousands are distributed at trade & travel shows throughout the year.

In 2010 we joined with The Town of Ocean City to provide one single vacation guide to our visitors, rather than producing two separate publications.

In 2013 we made the addition of a “While You’re in Town” Vacation Guide Supplement. This piece provides you with quick access to dining, amusement, nightlife, event information and much more…

The Guide is also readily available for visitors in a digital format to flip through & view online.

This is the Official Vacation Guide publication for Ocean City…

You don’t want to miss having your business showcased!
