Deep Creek lake for sure!
We have a house up there, and extra room for people to stay.

Plus, DCL is just awesome to begin with.
The drive out to DCL is great!

I'll dig through past years vacation photos and find some.
As far as I know, I should be going up again at the end of August/Early September.

I'll be sure to get some when I go this year.

Because it's fun?

I dunno, when we did myrtle beach it sucked... Everyone was always split apart, and yea I love the beach, but after a day or two at the beach... it gets old... I want to do group activities like white water rafting was this/last year. Besides... class V rapids! w00t LOL - Not to mention the roads, ziplines, waterfalls to swim in etc... Just seems to be a way more diverse area... So far the only thing people have said about OBX is "The Beach" and "Waves"... So yea, that takes care of Wednesday afternoon... Maybe Thursday afternoon.... but then what.

That's where I'm coming from lol. We still seem to have a lot of wishy washy people... and August 29th is a long ways away... so we'll see where we end up...

I'd rather go to OC than OBX. As much as I'd like to avoid the traffic... at least there are things to do. LOL


Also, the average 10 bed house (sleeping 20 people) is running about $500/PERSON in OBX... for the mid/end of June at a 1 week stay...
 - LINK -

One of the top 5 biggest and most expensive mansions on the lake which includes lake front access, an indoor pool, and... drum roll..... 7.5 bathrooms! LOL - is only $330/person with 28 person capacity... and obviously we don't need something so fantastic... - LINK -


So to me... the extra $170 dollars would pay your gas and/or food and/or activities instead of paying for all that on top of that...

Given yea, we can find cheaper houses anywhere I'm sure, but just an example though... DCL isn't as much of a tourist hot spot...

I would love to go scuba diving... but we're not gonna take 30 people and all go diving... let alone the expense of it... and what else is there?


I'm gonna have a blast either way... i'll just be more sunburned at one location than the other haha

Actually, if you go as soon as summer hits, up until August, it's very crowded compared to if you go Mid August/Early September.
It may not be as "Busy" as the Outer Banks or Ocean City gets, But there's alot of vacation houses and rental properties up there, and they fill up fast.

Also (No surprise here) but the later in the summer you go, the cheaper the vacation rentals become

There is ALOT of different stuff to do, But if you go during peak season, the actual town is pretty crowded.

It really isn't a matter of location wise for new englanders... they won't come anyhow (I'm the only one, trust me) - It's about east to west location... and it's about things to do!

Whoa whoa whoa. I came to EECMM3 from New England and had the longest drive, probably the longest drive in EECMM history. 17 hours driving, 19 hours traveling (pooping and eating, lol).

So a closer location would definitely weigh into my vote. With that said, I know this is an ignorant question but what's the difference between Deep Creek and Ocean City, I have not been to either?

Pros and Cons of both?
I've always wanted a suitcase handcuffed to my wrist.

DCL is a lot less crowded than OC, and rentals are going to be cheaper in DCL compared to OC.
Even in peak vacation season.
there's a lot to do in DCL (And even more with a short 30-60 minute drive out of the town), But OC definitely has a lot more "things" to do in a close proximity.
OC is a tourist attraction for sure. DCL is still a pretty popular MD vacation spot, But no where near the magnitude of OC.

There is definitely a larger variety of things to do in DCL.
They have the lake, including some "beaches", a lot of jet ski and water skiing, tubing,  the ski resort, which is open in the summer and they have a mountain bike area and the mountain coaster, White water rafting, state parks, Plenty of places to eat, and as said before, with a short drive out of the town, there is quite a bit more to do.
(And the drive to DCL is MUCH nicer than the drive to OC.)

When you go to OC, once you've walked down the boardwalk, you've pretty much seen it all.
You can only go into so many tourist t-shirt shops, and play so many games of mini-gold before it looses it's "ZING".

Either location would be a good choice, Im just pulling for DCL.
