Shenanigans - Shoreham Hotel in Ocean City - The Haunted Trifecta

Ocean City Ghost Walk

Who would suspect that tucked into all the concrete, asphalt and high rises, there were ghosts in Ocean City, Maryland?  The storyteller leading your Ocean City Ghost Walk will let guests experience the unfamiliar historic parts of the town and will reveal a haunted history like no other Eastern Shore destination.  There are over a dozen ghosts that linger in the historic district of Ocean City and on this Ghost Tour, you’ll learn about many of them.

PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT GO INSIDE THE PROPERTIES.  This is a ghost walk where stories of hauntings and unexplained events are shared while standing outside the property.



SITES ON THE OCEAN CITY GHOST WALK include the Ocean City Life-saving Museum, Tarry-A-While guest house, the Henry Hotel, Atlantic Hotel, Shoreham Hotel, Trimper Amusements, the Plim Plaza and other properties from the Inlet to 4th Street in the historic district.
