“Catch a ride,” and gain a getaway this summer!
Ocean City, Maryland just unveiled its new “Catch a Ride” campaign on Friday, May 26.
After an April 2023 survey from The Vacationer found than more than 78% of Americans are planning to head out on a road trip this summer, Ocean City is aiming to become the go-to road trip destination for residents of Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C.
Now, Ocean City has launched its “Catch a Ride” campaign, inviting Washingtonians the chance to enter to win one of six grand prizes, offering a three-night stay for two this summer in Ocean City. Oh, did we mention you’ll get there in style? Winners will be escorted to Ocean City in a 1970s Volkswagen beach van by a private chauffeur!
“Our goal with ‘Catch a Ride’ is to not only kick-off summer 2023 with a splash but to also introduce our refreshed brand with a carefree, playful activation that gives our neighbors in Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. the extra nudge they need to pack up the car and plan a road trip to visit us,” Ocean City Director of Tourism and Business Development Tom Perlozzo, said in a press release.
Once there, winners can relax and enjoy a provided beach-inspired lounge, play “destination-inspired games,” and turn to local ambassadors who will help them make the most of their time exploring Ocean City’s beautiful beaches and iconic boardwalk.
“With everything from thrilling rides and delicious cuisine to beautiful beaches and championship golf courses, Ocean City, Maryland really is ‘Somewhere to Smile About,’” said Perlozzo.
