Rent a car in Ocean City and watch your vacation unfold before you. Head for the Ocean City Boardwalk, located on the east coast of the barrier island. This local hot spot provides miles of walkway for you to stroll, flanked by the Atlantic on one side and numerous boutiques and restaurants on the other. Whether you’re looking for seafood, jewelry shops, or independent bookstores, you’re bound to find it along this strip of walkway. If you’re ready to do some additional exploring, drive about 35 miles north along DE-1 to reach Cape Henlopen State Park. Hike the three-mile paved trail around the park, or climb to the top of a World War II-era tower for a magnificent view of the ocean.
