visit-ocnj-in-the-off-season

As summer winds down, vacationers are packing up and heading home to get back into the routine of school and work.  While Labor Day may mark the unofficial end of summer, there are still lots of reasons to visit Ocean City in the off-season.

PEACE AND QUIET

With the hustle and bustle of the summer over with, Ocean City quiets down. There are fewer vacationers and far fewer crowds. A walk on the beach is peaceful and quiet without a sea of umbrellas and beachgoers enjoying the summer sun.  During the off-season, Ocean City really is a place to relax and escape.

FESTIVALS AND EVENTS

Ocean City has a very full event calendar planned during the fall months.  From the weekend after Labor Day through December, there are festivals and events planned almost every weekend. September 10th kicks off the fall season with Street Rod Weekend, a classic car show.  Throughout the fall, there are other events too, such as the Chili-Chowder Festival (October 2), Christmas Craft & Fine Arts Festival (November 12), and Christmas events featuring photos with Santa, horse and carriage rides, and a parade during the month of December.

SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS

During the off season, many shops and restaurants stay open because the locals need somewhere to dine and shop too. Some of the shops and restaurants begin to reduce their hours as the crowds thin out, but there is always somewhere in town to find a great meal and do a little shopping.

Whether it is peace and quiet, a great meal, or a weekend festival, Ocean City is the perfect place to visit during the off-season.
