West OC (often referred to simply as “West O”) sits on the Sinepuxent Bay and is best known for its abundance of fishing charters and marinas, seafood restaurants that look out on the bay, shopping at Tanger Outlets and adventurous entertainment at Baja Amusements.
Pedestrians can walk or bike across the Route 50 bridge, formally known as the Harry W. Kelley Memorial Bridge, and arrive at Ocean City’s famous Boardwalk in under 10 minutes. Assateague Island National Seashore is just 14 miles south of West O, and the Isle of Wight Nature Park is a few minutes north. West Ocean City borders Berlin, Maryland, and that proximity alone draws thousands of travelers to lodge in West O every year. Berlin is America’s Coolest Small Town, after all, but West Ocean City is a close second.
Once an isolated fishing village that has since grown into one of the east coast’s premier vacation destinations, Ocean City, Maryland has a wonderful and storied past. An Englishman named Thomas Fenwick,the namesake of the Delaware resort that borders Ocean City to the north, once owned the land where Ocean City now sits. All who are now involved in the city’s tourism today can look to, and thank, Isaac Coffin. As grandfather of the local tourism industry, Coffin attracted visitors came from all over the eastern seaboard looking to relax on the pristine beach, enjoy abundant fishing, and to collect seashells. At the time, the area was simply an undeveloped strip of sand, not the Ocean City, Maryland that we know today with its high-rise condominiums, amusements, shops, restaurants, and iconic Boardwalk.
