🦀 Crab Cake Factory’s Loca Madre Experience by: WWW.MADMENVACATIONRENTALS.COM/Mad Men Beach House

Guests often ask where I recommend getting crab cakes  in Ocean City! This is where I send them! There are multiple locations in Ocean City but in the Winter  this location is open every night of the week plus they have live music entertainment every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night!

Our family has had the tradition for years to buy the frozen crab cakes from the Crab Cake Factory Restaurant and then cook them at home. This saves a little bit for our vacation and when you stay at a vacation rental finding great take out meals to eat in is definitely a great money saving strategy! We like ordering them frozen because then we can cook them and eat them fresh out of the oven! It is not uncommon however for us to do the Crab Cake Factory two nights during our annual Ocean City summer vacation. Once we eat in and once we eat out! What is great about the Loca Madre’s location is that it is open all year round 7 days a week! I love Ocean City in the off season staying at Mad Men Beach House. So finding the restaurants that are open 7 days a week is a must! I highly recommend any location but in the off season Loca Madre’s it is!

🎳Alley Oops Ocean City Experiences by: WWW.MADMENVACATIONRENTALS.COM

Here is another great winter  activity in Ocean City Maryland! Alley Oops is new to Coastal Highway and walking distance from Mad Men Beach House! It was the perfect activity on this particularly dreary day for me and my kiddos! My kids loved the arcade. There were so many games with wheels, buttons and hammers my kids enjoyed playing with the games even though I did not pay to play the games! Then we did pay for one game of bowling. It was my twin 3 year olds first bowling experience and it did not disappoint. The bumpers helped my kids knock down the pins every time. There is also a great bar area and dine in restaurant. It even has a fish tank with sharks! This place has thought of everything! The best things I have to say about this place is that it is open 7 days a week, all year round! So, any time of year, a rainy summer beach day or a dreary winter day this place is where it is at!

Dry 85 OC Restaurant Experience in the Winter by: Mad Men Vacation Rentals: WWW.MADMENVACATIONRENTALS.COM

Winter in Ocean City is the perfect time to plan a girls weekend/midweek get away! Not only is it a quiet and relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle but you also can take advantage of all the awesome, off season restaurant deals in Ocean City! Because what is a girls trip without eating fabulous food and drinking fabulous drinks?!

For my latest winter girls trip to Ocean City, my friend and I were hopping around to a few bars to feel out the scene on a Thursday night in January. Our second stop was at Dry 85 OC and what an amazing experience! The ambiance was chill and classy. There was just enough people to not feel crowded but still be able to meet new people at the bar. It was half off burgers so of course we took advantage of that. The food was delish! Then the best part, the cocktails! Dry 85 is known for their selection of bourbons and whiskeys. So of course their hand crafted, whiskey cocktails were out of this world! Dry 85 is relatively new to Ocean City and it is a fresh addition to the beach resort town. I highly recommend this place any time of year and let them know Mad Men Vacation Rentals sent you!

Assawoman Bay Sunset in Ocean City, Maryland from Mad Men Beach House by: Mad Men Vacation Rentals WWW.MADMENVACATIONRENTALS.COM

There are so many little treasures to discover and experience in the winter in Ocean City, Maryland. One thing I keep going back for over and over again is the winter sunsets I enjoy from our deck at Mad Men Beach House! Every single night is a new, beautiful expression of God’s beauty and creativity! The reflections on the canal are always so beautiful but when the canal starts to ice over it is especially pretty! 

Some nights you see colors of hot pink, bright orange and yellows. Other nights you see more periwinkle, shades of blue and grey! The clouds and how close they are to the earth and if they are moving slow, fast or seemingly at all also makes for a completely unique and spectacular experience every single night. 

Mad Men Beach House is unique that it is open all year round and it is one of the most popular winter vacation rentals in Ocean City, Maryland because of this bay sunset experience it provides. Prices are at it’s lowest and many guest take advantage of this by booking an anniversary getaway, birthday getaway, personal winter retreat, winter romantic getaway or just winter getaway with friends and family. We hope you also can experience Ocean City in the winter at Mad Men Beach House so you too can see why we and others come back again and again, all winter long!

Burely Oak Brewing Company Taproom Experience by: Mad Men Vacation Rentals/Mad Men Beach House

Maryland has a lot of things it is well know for. Of course the first thing you think of is Maryland Blue Crabs! But a close second is the high quality hand crafted beer and breweries! The Maryland Easter Shore is especially known for many renowned breweries. One up and coming Maryland breweries that is now drawing people from all over the country is the Burely Oak Brewing Company in Berlin, Maryland which is an easy 15-20min drive from Ocean City, Maryland a popular resort beach town where we own a popular vacation home called “Mad Men Beach House”! 

I first heard about Burely Oak at the amazing restaurants in Ocean City that have Burely Oak on tap! Then I started hearing about it from all my craft beer connoisseur friends and family. It became a bucket list activity for the next time I was at our vacation rental “Mad Men Beach House” in Ocean City, Maryland! So, one winter, January 2020 day we finally found our opportunity to explore Berlin, Maryland and more importantly go to the Burely Oak Brewing Company Taproom! We were lucky that we arrived on a new beer release day and I got to try completely original and brand new to the public craft brews! I got to chat with the own and founder Bryan and was so inspired by his story! Finally, I got my flight of finely crafted, brand spankin new beers to try and man, it did not disappoint! This place is definitely worth being on your bucket list and a great “off season”, winter activity when taking a getaway to Ocean City, Maryland! Don’t forget to book your stay at Mad Men Beach House when you plan your next trip to check out this one of a kind Maryland Brewery!

We decided to go the following day to the “play time” and it was great for my kids to explore new educational toys and games.

Winter in Berlin Maryland Experience by: Mad Men Vacation Rentals WWW.MADMENVACATIONRENTALS.COM

Berlin, Maryland voted the “Coolest Small Town In America” by Budget Travel is less than a 30 minute drive from Mad Men Beach House and the perfect winter activity when visiting Ocean City, Maryland in the “off season”! 

We had our first experience exploring this quant little town in January of 2020. It was a brisk day but there is something magical about bundling up and hoping around from tea rooms to bakeries to bars to antique shops to art galleries! The window shopping is fabulous with a cup of hot coco! We were lucky to hit the last day of Restaurant Week in Berlin, Maryland! We tried tasty bites, treats and brews at multiple hot spots in the area including the Bakery Dessert Cafe, Burely Oak Cafe, and the Black Smith Restaurant! 

We explored the Hotel Atlantic where “Runaway Bride” was filmed and hopped into locally owned retail shops like the Viking Tree! The art galleries were aplenty and fantastic. The artists really took the time to share their story and passion with you as you took in their unique gifts to the world! The Wooden Octopus and Jeffrey Auxer Designs were a highlight for sure! 

Lastly what is a trip to Berlin, Maryland without checking out one of the most popular craft brewing companies in the country, The Burley Oak Brewing Company! With over 20 beers on tap and more in the cans, it is a must for every beer lover out there! We were lucky to get there on a “release day” for 5 new brews! It was hopping in that tasting room in more senses than one! I loved trying a flight of beers that were so diverse in flavor and colors it was impossible not to take pictures of it’s beauty! 

So our little, winter day trip to Berlin, Maryland from Mad Men Beach House in Ocean City Maryland was just what the doctor ordered! I hope you enjoyed our video and come do your own Berlin Maryland day trip from Mad Men Beach House soon! As they say, “off season is the best season!” Make sure to book your off season get away at Mad Men Beach House direct through our website: WWW.MADMENVACATIONRENTALS.COM.
