Aptly named Ocean City is, in fact, a city by the ocean, though that is to understate the summer popularity of this beach retreat, which also happens to be boardwalk, bikini-clad crowd and lively bar endowed.
Bygone centuries beckon from the ground beneath, virtually on the doorstep for visitors to London Town and Gardens, a historic site that encompasses the partially excavated remains of a former settlement over two hundred years old. In addition to ongoing excavations by both professional and amateur archaeologists find the National Historic Landmark William Brown House (open to the public on guided tours), a peaceful wooland garden plot and the Richard Hill Garden, where a variety of medicinal plants and native species have been put to seed. Educational courses, seminars and adult programs are also offered through the site, so check the calendar for dates and details.
