Our Tourist Development Commission launched their 2014 marketing campaign this week. The theme of this year’s campaign is that a visit to Ocean City, NJ is “More Than a Vacation…..It’s a Tradition.”
The multi-media campaign includes television spots in the Greater Philadelphia area, the Lehigh Valley, Lancaster, and Harrisburg. Billboards featuring Ocean City have been leased on the Walt Whitman Bridge and I-95, including two in partnership with Cape May County Department of Tourism. Print ads will appear in the Sunday Philadelphia Inquirer and coming issues of various lifestyle magazines in the region. Advertising by various electronic means will follow including banner ads on various high volume web sites.
I would like to thank the members of the commission for all of the time they volunteer to help promote Ocean City. Their budget is funded by assessments on local mercantile licenses and rental unit registrations.
Have a great weekend and enjoy what hopefully will be some warmer weather!

Welcome to The City of Ocean City, New Jersey!
Ocean City is a town rich in history and a deep sense of community. Families have been vacationing in Ocean City for generations and many have made Ocean City their year round home.
Our residents enjoy award winning schools, world-class recreation facilities and outstanding municipal services from all City Departments including Police and Fire. Residents participate in activities for every age and interest including the cultural arts, music and theatre as well as sports and recreation programs available at our many parks, playgrounds and City facilities.
The City also maintains and operates a Municipal Airport, twelve-hole golf course, Aquatic and Fitness Center as well as the famed Ocean City Pops Orchestra.
Ocean City is also host to over 200 family friendly special events held year round. Many of our events are popular family traditions including the Night in Venice Boat Parade in July, our exciting Indian Summer Weekend in October featuring the mile long block party and fireworks, and our family friendly New Year’s Eve Celebration, First Night.
If you are vacationing in Ocean City, I know you’ll enjoy our seven miles of beautiful beaches and exciting boardwalk lined with shops, restaurants and amusements. And be sure to visit our unique and charming downtown shops and restaurants located in the heart of town on Asbury Avenue.
I am truly proud to serve as Mayor for this great community and hope you and your family enjoy your time in America’s Greatest Family Resort.
