Summer Vacations In Ocean City

Choosing the right place to stay can make the difference between a simple trip to the beach and a summer vacation your family will always remember. At Princess Royale Oceanfront Resort, we offer some of the best options in the area for enjoying every minute of your vacation. Although we know you will want to spend plenty of time enjoying the beach that is just steps from your door, our extra amenities can make the time you spend on our ocean view property just as memorable.

No Shortage of Fun Family Activities

Ocean City’s miles of beaches make its many options for enjoying water sports and relaxing on the sand while listening to waves the perfect summer vacation choice on their own. Still, the area provides plenty of other indoor and outdoor activities that can create a memorable experience for the entire family. The area has plenty of activities for families and options designed specifically for children to keep your entire group having a good time for the duration of your vacation.

Even the most dedicated ocean lovers may not want to spend their entire vacation on the beach, and Ocean City’s other family-friendly activities can fill your calendar with other fun things to do on rainy days or if you simply need a break from the sunshine. This peaceful and entertaining island is filled with miniature golf, fishing, boating, basketball, tennis, and a plethora of other options for enjoying the great outdoors, while its countless shops, library programs, and other indoor activities provide alternative options if a particular day is too hot or rainy to enjoy the outdoor activities Ocean City is known for.

Miles of Safe and Secure Beaches

Ocean City is lined with eight miles of beaches that provide plenty of space for relaxing, swimming, or enjoying your favorite water sports. Between the serene, clear water and bright white sand of our beaches, it’s easy to see why the Ocean City area is home to one of New England’s most popular beach towns. Unlike some smaller beaches with fewer visitors that tend to be understaffed or completely unstaffed, our beaches have plenty of people around to make sure everyone can enjoy the ocean safely whenever they are open.

Our lifeguards and on-site first aid personnel are also available whenever any of our beaches are open to enhance your overall safety and security whether you are enjoying your favorite recreational activities or just soaking up some sun. No matter how you plan to enjoy our beaches, our beach staff is always around to answer any questions you have, handle any

problems that may come up, and generally improve how safe you feel while enjoying Ocean City’s beaches.

Beach Family Vacations in Summer Featuring a Fabulous Boardwalk

The beach itself is only the beginning when it comes to enjoying the beauty of Ocean City. Our Boardwalk is filled with shops, restaurants, and even two amusement parks that make it easy to support local businesses while making the most of times when the beach is closed, too hot to enjoy comfortably, or you just want to enjoy more of what Ocean City has to offer. This 2.5-mile path is the perfect place to enjoy a scenic walk or bike ride while sampling treats or shopping for souvenirs, especially at sunrise or sunset.

Dining Options for the Entire Family

Whether you are looking for a quick bite before hitting the beach or a fancy dinner at a nice restaurant on the last night of your vacation, the Boardwalk and the rest of Ocean City are filled with dozens of culinary choices that make it possible to enjoy precisely what you have in mind. You can find everything from burgers, hot dogs, and other quick lunches to lobster, steak, and fine dining options that offer local favorites and menus your whole family will enjoy.

If you are between meals, you can find snack options that range from fresh fruit and gourmet candy to popcorn and cotton candy within a short walk of your favorite beach spot. No matter what you have a taste for during your summer vacation or want to bring home with you, chances are several of our many vendors and restaurants sell your favorites.
