When to Book an Airbnb in Ocean City, Maryland

I’ve been to Ocean City, Maryland during every month of the year. I can definitively tell you that there is no bad time to visit OCMD. It’s just a perfect beach city along the Atlantic Ocean and you’ll get a different experience every month of the year.

Of course, the peak travel period is from late May through early September – northeast beach season. These months you’ll find that the boardwalk is crowded, there’s hardly an empty spot on the beach, and the bars like Seacrets, Macky’s, and Fish Tales are packed.

The town swells and you should be prepared for traffic, but it’s a great time to visit and soak in the energy of the summer season. Of course, it’s the period of highest demand so you should be prepared to pay a higher rate when booking an Ocean City, Maryland rental.

My personal opinion is that the best time to visit Ocean City, Maryland is between Labor Day and Halloween. In September and October, you have pleasant weather, more peaceful beaches and you can have your run of town with little traffic.

Similar conditions exist in the months of May and June (before schools let out for the summer). The “shoulder season” in OCMD is my favorite time to visit. Best of all, you can find cheaper rates when booking your Ocean City, Maryland Airbnb.

During the winter months, you’ll find a serene and quiet beach town in Ocean City. It’s quite lovely and there are annual winter holiday and New Years events to enjoy. In fact, the city has a full calendar of year-round events to occupy visitors!

Ready to Book an Ocean City Maryland Airbnb?

If you’re still reading at this point, I assume you’re ready to book an Ocean City, Maryland rental home. Keep in mind a few tips:

  1. We did our best to give you prices that were available now – however many properties have dynamic pricing throughout the year and additional fees. Keep that in mind and check their final charges on Airbnb – you won’t find homes for $120/night in peak summer months.
  2. Almost all Airbnbs in Ocean City Maryland will require you and your group to supply your own towels, toiletries, and bed linens. Make sure to read listings fully before you book and take that into account when you book. Maybe a $200 linens fee divided 14 ways is worth the convenience for your family or group of friends.
  3. Check-in and check-out are often remote for these properties. Usually, you’re emailed a keycode to enter the property so ask questions of the owner in advance because you will likely never meet them.
  4. Be careful to consider the parking situation at the home that you book and carpool or caravan with your group if you need to.
