Sunny skies and good weather brought another crowded Fourth of July weekend to Ocean City, even though the one-day interval between the holiday itself and the weekend saw some visitors departing before the grand finale Tuesday.
“Ocean City was bustling this weekend,” said Jessica Waters, Town of Ocean City communications manager. “It was great to see so many people take advantage of a long weekend and using the holiday to spend time with their family and friends in Ocean City. The crowds on the Boardwalk were great and traffic was heavy, which indicates that people were out and about.”
Melanie Pursel, executive director for the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce, said most hotels were at capacity based on the limited number of calls received about vacancies.
“The town was pretty packed and the weather was nice,” Pursel said. “It was a very successful Fourth. People came in early and did make a weekend out if it. Sunday was packed with a lot of families on the beach. By all accounts, it was a great weekend.”
