Things to Do When It Rains in OCMD

Looking for things to do when it rains in OCMD? When you stay at the Grand Hotel you’re centrally located next to tons of rainy day activities on the Ocean City, MD boardwalk and along Coastal Highway. Book your stay and rest assured that you will have a great vacation planned, rain, or shine!

Rainy Day Activities on the Boardwalk

Staying at the Grand Hotel is perfect if you want to stay within walking distance of all the fun boardwalk stops. Catch the train and ride it to the end to watch the boats enter the inlet. Walk down to the inlet pier where you’ll find love locks from couples from all over lined along the fence. 

Museums: Stop in at one of the museums like the Ocean City Life Saving Station and learn about Ocean City’s coastal history. The museum also has different exhibits, programs, and events happening throughout the year. For something more bizarre head into Ripleys Believe it or Not where adults and children alike will become immersed in oddities, incredible art, pop-culture memorabilia, interactive games, and stories of people and places that are incredibly hard to believe, but undeniably true! 

Games & Fun: Kids will love Sportland Arcade Games. Pop in for a family portrait at Flashback Old Time Photos where you can pose in costumes from the 1840s to the 1930s.  

Amenities: When you stay at the Grand Hotel, you’ll be right on the boardwalk making it super convenient to take a break from exploring and enjoy the amenities available. Everything is available to you all in one place if you want to stay in and relax! Kids can jump in the indoor pool and splash around which is perfect for a rainy or cold day. Get some workouts in at the fitness center and destress in the sauna.

Grab Something to Eat: Grab a snack at the Java Beach Cafe or grab a sweet treat from Scoops Ice Cream then stop by the game room and lounge area to hang out while you wait for the rain to stop. If you do get caught in the rain we have guest laundry services available. 

Head back out for happy hour or dinner at one of the oceanfront spots like Franco’s Pizza. Or dine in at the Grand Hotel’s Terrace Restaurant offering guests breathtaking panoramic views from the 6th floor. 

There are plenty of fun things to do in OCMD, rain or shine! When the sun does come out, you can admire the stunning ocean views and sunrises over the beach! Stay at the Grand Hotel to be close to all the fun activities along the boardwalk.
