Ocean City celebrates another successful summer

September 23, 2015 by  

Another summer season has come and gone for Ocean City, and it has been a positive few months on the tourism front.

There are several factors that have come together to account for this. According to Jessica Waters, who is the Ocean City Communications Manager, the weather this year was perfect for tourism, with lots of sunshine, especially during the weekends. She noted that it was great for attracting visitors to the area, remarking that most of those in the hospitality-based industry in the city were very pleased with the number of patrons they had.

The large number of people who chose to take a vacation in the area was also good news for the city, as it was able to collect a larger total in tax revenues from food, accommodation, and amusements this summer than it did in 2014. Once all the numbers dealing with this are compiled, a catalog printing firm will be able to compile them to a printed and bound report that can easily be distributed to promote the area.

Another factor that led to a successful year was the many events that took place. The Fourth of July celebration was the largest it had ever had, and there was also the OC Air Show and the White Martin Open, all of which drew in many visitors to the area. Add to these the many other smaller activities that were scheduled, and the end result was a very busy summer season.
