Ocean City Maryland – Rated “Super Clean”

Ocean Beach-VWhen you buy a home in Crofton, Maryland, you’ll discover why Maryland is sometimes called “America in Miniature.”  You’ll be just hours from her ocean beaches and her mountains, her cities and her agricultural areas.  

Just two and a half hours from Crofton, Maryland’s premier vacation spot is Ocean City.  Now it’s on a list of The Cleanest Beaches in America!

Ocean City’s seaside resort community is in good company… just look:

10. Poipu Beach (Kauai, HI)
 9.  Bolsa Chica State Beach (Orange County, CA) 
 8.  Salt Pond Beach Park (Kauai, HI)
 7.  Laguna Beach (Orange County, CA)
 6.  Park Point (Duluth, MN)
 5.  Wailea Beach Park (Maui, HI)
 4.  Ocean City (Ocean City, MD)
 3.  Magic Island Beach (Honolulu, HI)
 2.  Hampton Beach (Hampton, N.H.)
 1.  Huntington City Beach (Orange County, CA)

This recently-released list was compiled by the National Resource Defense Council, which used a 5–star rating system to evaluate frequently-collected bacteria samples at 181 beaches across the country. 

Ocean City wasn’t always this clean.  According to the NRDC, Ocean City has taken steps in recent years to improve their water quality through innovative approaches to storm water management.  Porous pavement now allows more storm water to seep into the ground rather than flow into the ocean.  They also report that wetland ponds and vegetation buffers help capture and filter runoff before it contaminates Ocean beaches.

September and October are a beautiful time in Ocean City – ‘still warm enough to enjoy the sunny beach and boardwalk, without the crowds.  Check it out!
