The Best Romantic Beach Condos and VRBO's in Ocean City, MD for Couples (September 2021)

Ocean City, Maryland is a popular beach destination because of its close proximity to Washington DC and other major metropolitan areas. This is a great beach for couples who want a laid back beach setting, fun bars and restaurants, and a vibrant beach vibe. There's a Boardwalk that stays active and fun during the summer months, and a variety of shops, cafes, and food stands that are fun to explore.

Accommodation in Ocean City is predominantly high rise condos and hotels, but but they tend to be fairly expensive, and as you probably have already guessed, it's much more affordable to stay in a private house or condo that you find on AirBnB. As you'd expect, the closer you are to the beach, the more you can expect to pay for a rental.

Boardwalk & Downtown

Inlet to 30th Street

Downtown Ocean City offers visitors a quintessential beach experience with its classic Boardwalk and lively vibe. The area has tons of restaurants, bars, food stands, amusement parks, and entertainment options. For couples who want to be near all of the action, this is the place to stay. It is where you'll find the city's iconic Boardwalk, which offers the quintessential beach vibe that people love. It's the perfect place to grab a hot dog and snow cone while you wander down the promenade.

This area is also the most crowded part of Ocean City, particularly during festivals. Parking can be kind of difficult but fortunately there's the Ocean City Beach Bus that offers a full day pass for only $3. There's also a more expensive Boardwalk tram that you can take.

This area has a large concentration of high rise condos that offer beachfront views and modern amenities. Many buildings also have pools or other fun activities. Below are just a couple of the best AirBnbs in the area.
