There is something special about Ocean City Boardwalk and its beaches. Ocean city maryland was one of the first beaches of the north east that I really felt in love.
The best Affordable option to get to this destination is by driving. The two closets airport are the Baltimore ( BWI) and the Washington Reagan airport. These options still require a car rental
No having too many traveloption make this destination ideal for roadtrippers Lovers.
It took about 3 hour drive from penssylvania. a very pleasant drive with minimun traffic TRAVEL HACK: Avoid traveling saturday morning as its the time rental change in itinerary and is very busy during the early mornings.
Out Hotel was the Princess Bayside Beach Hotel. Princessbay hotel in ocean city offer exceptional amenities in #oceancitymaryland . A hotel that has its own bay, two pools double deck parking and onsite restaurant and bar, the beach right a cross the street and one of the famous bar-restaurant club in the area. If that is not enough there is a theme park and a waterpark within walking distance.
A good thing if you are spending a hot day at the beach and found yourself surrounded by a crowd.
Head back to this nicely secluded beach on the bay and enjoy some rental paddle boards and kayaks.
Travel Hack: Arrive early to the hotel and ask the receptionist for a parking pass holder. you will be able to enjoy the parking space and all the hotel amenities while you wait for your room to become available.
Choose this hotel and bring a group of friends. Literally have a blast if fun.. look a the top building on the left side. There is the the roof top bar and pool, beautiful bayside views, spend the morning at kayaking, have lunch at the onside restaurant then head up to the roof top pool and have a sunburn along with a beer. Come down around 6pm and a shower and have some wine watching the sunset from your private balcony. Now grab your best beach outfit and head to seacrets the club next door. Don’t even need a car, walk, have some more beer and party your life off.. around 2 am just ask your drunk friend or girlfriend where is the hotel? They will say.. is right on front next to us.. lol laugh a little more, walk a little more, now you got to your room. Take off your clothes and rest you butt..
Ocean city maryland.
A beach that is 1000 miles long that offers plenty to do and is a gen for the north east coast. It has a #beachboardwalk of 5 miles and a pier with an #amusementpark . a destination that has a little if everything for everyone..
Where can you find a clean sand combine with open blue sky and a beautiful beach in the northeast. 🧐 thats going to be hard.to guess? well not hard enough if you live close to maryland. People say this is one of the most clear beaches compare to the jersey shore or Virginia beach.
This is probably one of if not the best in the east coast. Here is my reasoning to this.
Reason #1 not overly crowded reason #2 super duper clean reason #3 water doesn’t have high ratio of salt like miami. Reason #4
It does have any rocks like gaveston. Reason #5 you can do any sport and still is family oriented beach. There is lots if partying at night but still a family oriented area during the day. Do me a favor put this in your bucket list.
After a good day at the beach. Stay calm and enjoy a beautiful sunset @princessbayside hotel in maryland, not only is beautiful but is also calm and romantic.
Gourgegous #sunset🌅 views after a day kayaking in the bay. Grab your wine and get a relaxing view of the last hour of daylight. The best day to enjoy a full day kayaking on the bay is to end it peacefully .
Grab a 🍷🥂 cocktail and enjoy a chill out at the beach. 🥂🥂🥂🍾

Jesus on sand.. Probably one of the highlights of the boardwalk. For decades artist have been maintaining this piece of art made of sand.. a masterpiece that most be recognized. Thank you to all the people involved in this masterpiece
The Somerset Plaza. One of the many entrances to the OC Boardwalk. As soon as you enter you can experience the excitement and noise of the crowd walking along the board. A boardwalk fill of shops , restaurants and all sort of things. Great place for people watching , eating a snack or just talking a break at the benches after a long day at the beach.
As you get closet to the #jollyranger theme park you start to notice lots of street performers along the boardwalk. Its a free performance that as espectador we need to appreciate the talent and time these individuals take to bring joy to the boardwalk. This are the little things that makes oc city so special.
When visiting ocean city Maryland there are few must do for every visitor, you must go tot the #beach , build some memories and #sandcastle , have fun doing Waters ports, head over to the #pier and catch some fish, take the kids to the boardwalk and ride some awesome #rollercoaster .

We love to travel, but most times we don’t have the schedule in our hand to travel often. We planned and decide flight out to and have an itinerary of 48 hrs to explorer miami florida
We hope this itinerary serve you a guide and inspiration to a least travel and experience the nature, culture and people of this planet call earth.
The guide we provide is a living example of the activities we did while doing our short vacation.

The Newark airport:
This international airport is one that offers most fight options for Pennsylvania and jersey residents depending your destination it may be cheaper. I find that there are less cancellations out of this airport compare to the JFK and PHL airports.Parking options requires either a shuttle or airtran to the terminals. I f you arrive early enough, the lines to security are much more manageable. Once you pass security the restaurants and lounges give you plenty of options to relax and stick around.
The Fort Lauradel Airport:
This airport is smaller compare to the miami airport. If you are carrying lots of luggages if could be tough the checkin and checkout process. One advantage this airport has similar to the orlando airport is that car rentals pick up and drop off are right at the gate. Easy to pick up easy to drop off.
We got virtually a car rental from accumulating and rewarding credit card points. You can learn how to do it free follow my link to tutorial
We choose Avis as our rental company because of their reputation and past experience, like any other company there are up-sells and extras that can add up, but we went with a basic rental and the service went smooth. We were out with keys in about 30mins.
First stop: THE VENETIAN POOL
The drive from FLL to coral bagels is pretty straight forward you drive straight south via interstate I95. The once on coral gables you hit couple of turns and then you find the uncrowded parking spot of the venetian pool 2701 De Soto Blvd, Coral Gables, FL 33134
This modern oasis was constructed around 1920 by george derrick. This originally built on top of a quarry with natural water flowing from underneath and palms trees and waterfall, makes you transport to a mystical place in greece. Definitively once of the rarest municipal pools in the united states. There is free parking and the is a fee to enter the pool. I can say that the overall experience is a very clean atmosphere , I didn’t see any food So I am assuming no food is allowed. The highlight of the place is the big waterfall. A very beautiful every traveler should experience.
After spending few hours, we then headed to check in to our hotel in aventura.
Turnberry Isle Resort by Marriott
The checking was a breeze. This is a beautiful hotel with amenities like onsite restaurant, valed parking, shuttle to the beach and is right across from the aventura mall. The grounds, pool and the golf zone are beautiful.
We got a deal to this hotel thru the ios app call hopper. We book the hotel and could not be happier you can see how clean this hotel was
The hotel is undergoing some renovations and it should be more exciting new things to come like a new waterpark onsite
we actually spent our anniversary and the rooms facing the golf course made it so romantic watching the sunrise in the morning. We have a full video where you can check our laughs and joys around this hotel.
Sightseeing : Aventura Mall
after checking in to the hotel, we make our first to to the aventura Mall in aventura.
This mall is very convenient if you are staying at the turnberry isle resort. Its right across the street. So if you are traveling and forgot your beach accessories or need extra set of clothes for that nice dinner, you can bet this mall will have it. Its also a very high end mall with lots of fashion name stores and nice restaurants on the first floor. The main entrance has a cool slide and water jets for kids to enjoy.
As a traveler we are always looking for ideas of interesting places to visit. It was always a dream for us to visit The venetian pool in Miami , Fl. This was constructed in the city of Coral Gables around the 1920s. Originally sitting on top of a quarry arquictet and founder George derrick created an illusion of distinctive Venetian pool. This natural lagoon water flows from underneath the coral caves. A bridge, waterfall, palm trees and sand make this municipal pool one of the largest in the United States.
My wife and I decide to take the challenge to travel to Florida to visit this incredible pool. Anyone that seems picture knows who special and unreal feels. We decide to make a 48 hr trip to Miami on the cheap. We bought affordable Airline tickets from united with restrictions built making the reservations under $100 each trip. Once we had the air ticket we secure a deal l in hopper for a nice hotel for around $140 dollar a night. Because of accumulating enough travel point thru my credit card. I was also able to afford a 2 day car rental at no cost. The initial one day trip to the Venetian pool was well organized.
Just in flights and hotel we probably spend about $130 for both on flights
About $140 on a hotel stay.
We also were able to afford a good meal from the chain restaurant call campo campero. This is a chain restaurant that focuses on fried and grilled chicken recipes at affordable prices.
Making the first day of the trip with total expense of around 300 dollars, not a bad deal hugh?
If you are adventurous like me
Dont forget to visit this marvelous place in the middle of the city of coral gables, FL. I want to write my honest review about the venetian Pool Miami review. To recap this Exotic place is locate within short distance of Miami airport and Miami beach, It can be a fun day trip for families. you can drive or take an uber. There is a parking lot locate across the pool and there is an entrance fee of 20 dollars. there is no food allow but I recommend to just stop at the close mall or another close by attraction and eat before you get there. it is gorgeous for picture taking and your picture can capture beautiful memories. Me and my wife visited this place as soon as we landed and spent most of the afternoon. it was a crazy 48hr trip to Miami on a budget and exactly planned
if you want to know the details or do a similar trip
take my ideas.
I am dropping over a PDF guide to find affordable travel to Florida on the cheap.
