In the winter Ocean City hosts award-winning events, is home to some of the most beautiful winter landscapes, and offers an endless amount of fun and adventures. All of this without having to deal with the hustle and bustle that is found in the summer months. The 'Winterfest Spectacular' experience is a package that will make you truly appreciate the quieter side of Ocean City.
The main event in Ocean City during the winter is the Winterfest of Lights. A yearly tradition, and a national award-winning event, the Winterfest of Lights is the place to be when the sun and temperatures go down. Hop aboard a boardwalk tram, appropriately renamed the “Winterfest Express” for this event, and enjoy a ride through a magical display of holiday lights and festive features. Located at Northside Park on 125th st., this event is something that everyone can, and most certainly should, enjoy. The Winterfest Express takes you on a journey that features over one million sparkling holiday lights, hundreds of animated displays, and guaranteed smiles for everyone.
Other parts of the Winterfest experience include a trip to the 2014 Coolest Small Town in America: Berlin, Maryland. Here you will discover antique shops that take you on a journey to the past, handmade crafts and merchandise made by our wonderful locals, and an abundance of options to enjoy a fresh and delicious meal. On top of all of that, a trip to Ocean City wouldn't be complete with out a little adventure on Assateague Island: the home of the wild ponies. During the winter you experience a sense of serenity as you wander about the nature void of the typical summer-like traffic. Add a little snow to the mix and you're greeted with one of the most beautiful landscapes in America. Come and enjoy Ocean City in the winter and you'll discover why it is in fact spectacular.
