Ocean City Cool’s #CleanBeachOC Tuesday Clean Ups

Ocean City Cool‘s #CleanBeachOC Team has been cleaning up the beaches around Ocean City MD every Tuesday since Winter Storm Jonas in January 2016 and this Tuesday we are at it again. Join us at the Jolly Roger Pier under the Ferris Wheel on the inlet side [Map]. Lots of parking around downtown or you can park in the Hugh T Cropper Inlet Parking lot, but you’ll have to pay the fee, so grab a spot on one of the side streets and walk on over.
