Ask a Marylander where they're headed this summer, and chances are you're bound to hear "downee ocean." That can only mean one place: Ocean City.
"OC" is the major beach destination in the state, drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors and millions of dollars to the place where land meets water each year. Now, Maryland Public Television is laying claim to the OCMD experience by creating its newest program about life and fun in Maryland, Downee Ocean, Hon!, a vividly shot one-hour trip to the beach, filled with loads of fun, sun and salt water taffy.
From the beach to the boardwalk, from the Ferris Wheel to Fager's Island, from sunrise on the beach to nightlife by the bay, Downee Ocean, Hon! captures the OC experience, from the rich history, family traditions, and small-town charm that's kept Ocean City as Maryland's top vacation spot.
