Ocean City, Md. is one of the Northeast’s premiere beach towns. While tourists flock here for the summer months to enjoy its beaches and beautiful weather, Ocean City is also a place rich with plenty of history and culture.
The Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum is dedicated to preserving that history. Visitors to the museum may view interesting exhibits about the history of the city’s famous boardwalk and U.S. Life-Saving Service (which preceded the U.S. Coast Guard), along with several others, displaying artifacts from recovered shipwrecks, sands from different parts of the world and a comprehensive history of surfing in Ocean City.
Kids absolutely love the aquarium, where they’ll find plenty of interesting sea creatures indigenous to Ocean City’s beautiful shore.
