OC Offers Late Entry Fee For Inlet Lot On 4th

OCEAN CITY — As it did last year, the Town of Ocean City will be making a change to parking operations in the Inlet Parking Lot on Friday, July 4, by charging a $50 flat-fee for all-day parking.

The fee, which is good for one-entry, will allow visitors to come as early as 5 a.m. and stay as late as midnight, without being charged an hourly parking rate.

In addition, a late entry fee will be permitted at 3 p.m. for a fee of $30, also allowing one-entry only.

Visitors who utilize the flat-fee option will be issued a window pass and directed to park by assisting parking attendants.

Once the lot fills, visitors will be encouraged to use neighboring parking lots, including Worcester Street, Somerset Street, Dorchester Street, North Division Street, 4th Street and the West Ocean City Park & Ride.

The normal “ticketed” parking operations will return at midnight on July 5.
