Ocean City, MD Inlet
The Ocean City, MD Inlet was formed when a hurricane swept through the Delmarva Peninsula in the 1930s and today defines the southern end of Maryland’s premier coastal resort.
The inlet separates the excitement of Ocean City from the much more serene and isolated Assateague Island, known for its wild ponies and quiet nature. The inlet is also the location of Ocean City’s main parking area and where many of the resort’s activities are located, at the southern end of the city’s famous Boardwalk.
If you’re coming into the city from Route 50, turn due south on Coastal Highway and you will dead-end at the inlet. If you’re coming into the resort on Route 1 from Delaware, follow Coastal Highway all the way south until you hit the inlet parking area.
