Ocean City, Maryland has been a destination for graduating seniors for years. Memorial Day to the first 3 weeks of June have been dubbed “June Week”, and the seniors that come to have a good time are affectionately known as “Junebugs”. Here are some tips and ideas for your June Week in Ocean City!
Get Yourself Somewhere to Stay
Some hotels and rental houses don’t rent to seniors. Make sure you’re welcome when you get to Ocean City! Here is a great list of the hotels that welcome seniors with open arms.
Thinking of getting the best rates at hotels.com? Please don’t. First, those rates aren’t always the best, and second, if something happens, often those reservations aren’t able to be cancelled. (Not only college tips but travel tips for life too!)
I highly recommend booking your reservation at ocisfree.com. Why? Because when you do you get free stuff! Stuff like restaurant certificates, free games of mini golf, waterpark passes… you know, stuff you’ll actually use to make your Senior Week amazing. Just remember, that website shows many Ocean City hotels. You need to make sure the hotel you choose is on that list of those that accept seniors.
What to Do
Alright, that was the hard part. I’m glad we’re past it. Speaking of free stuff, Ocean City also organizes a ton of free events for seniors only from May 31 – June 17. I want my free rollercoaster ride and laser tag! Someone please invent me a time machine. Sorry their website sucks.
Another place to go? H2O Under 21 Dance Club. Right off the Boardwalk. So much fun. Again, time machine, please and thank you. Just make sure you keep it classy.
And please, while you’re there yourself some delicious boardwalk food. Trasher’s french fries, deep fried oreos, funnel cake… it’s non-stop deliciousness.
Seriously, I could write for days about fun things to do in Ocean City, but neither of us has that kind of attention span. Just be sure to check out events that are happening around town so you don’t miss anything.
Now I need to start planning my next trip…
