America's Most Crowded Beaches

America's Most Crowded Beaches: Ocean City

Joe Croos

No. 11 Ocean City, MD

Annual Visitors: 4,500,000

Visitors began arriving here after the Civil War by stagecoach and ferry. They wouldn’t recognize the beach town now, when more than 300,000 visitors come for the July 4th weekend alone, crowding restaurants, shops, Trimper’s boardwalk carousel, and, of course, the sand.
