City Guide

Ocean City
Ocean City is home to the iconic Mother Earth Cafe which has been the place for "the young and the young at heart" since 1976.
Ocean City is home to the iconic Mother Earth Cafe which has been the place for "the young and the young at heart" since 1976.

Ocean City, located in the skinny bit of Florida, butts up against the ocean through the Chocktawhatchee Bay. Unfortunately, this little known gem often gets confused with Maryland's Ocean City. This piece of coastal suburbia, overshadowed by big brother, Ft. Walton Beach, is distinctly different than the surrounding area with its location defined by the bay and adjoining bayous. It seems almost like a mini peninsula. Florida's Ocean City hosts a population of 5,594 according to the 2000 U.S. Census. A member of Okaloosa County, Ocean City is a census-designated place, which means that it does not have its own municipal government but the residents and nearby neighbors recognize the place by the name of Ocean City. The pseudo-city is intersected by Florida's highway 85 and 188.

Moving to Ocean City

Ocean Getaway

Ocean City offers the idyllic coastal city, the gentle rush of waves against creamy sand not far from the metropolis of Ft. Walton Beach. It is a lovely place to set up new residence with warm weather, beaches and close shopping and amusement amenities. Be aware that as a resident of this coastal paradise, some quick getaways from the ocean storms might be necessary. Plan ahead and speak with current residents to prepare for your own ocean getaway!

Supply and Demand of Sand Castles

Ocean real estate is a sizzling commodity especially in the toasty climate of Florida. Between spring breakers, vacationers, honeymooners, and snow birds, Florida has branded itself as the prime state for vacation, relaxation and dreamy living. The list of pros for residing in Ocean City, Florida, seriously outweighs the list of cons in everyone's books. The demand for excellent living Florida accommodations sometimes exceeds the actual supply. Therefore, begin searching for apartments for rent or house rentals in Ocean City, Florida, as early as possible.

Owning a Sand Castle

Ocean City offers many rental selections. Choose between furnished studio apartments with a week-by-week rent or condos for rent. Although it may be next to impossible to find rental apartments on the coast, consider house rentals. Many owners prefer to rent their homes out for months at a time. Sizes vary with a good choice between one to three bedrooms and one to two bathrooms. Rental properties in Ocean City, Florida, present the option of living right on the coast with a boat slip and dock or living more inland. Find apartments in Ocean City with simple online searches. Further information can be obtained through phone calls or emails to the office. Be sure to check office hours. Apartment amenities include a range of options that could include a pool, sports courts, laundry, no-weight-limits on pets, senior discounts, storage space and gardens.

Paperwork and Such

Sealing the rental deal means being prepared with the right paperwork. Before visiting your rental possibilities, check with every rental's office as to what types of ID, references or proof of employment that may be required. Armed with the correct paperwork, an apartment visit could end with information exchanged and a contract signed. Recognize that a deposit may be required as well to process the information and hold the rental property until move-in day.

Ocean City Neighborhoods

Ocean City, FL, is formally a part of Ft. Walton Beach. Yet, residents of the area recognize Ocean City as something more than a neighborhood. In fact, Ocean City divides itself into two distinct neighborhoods: one neighborhood cuddles the ocean bay while the other is the little spoon to the first neighborhood and bayous.

Bayview: This neighborhood sits against the ocean. Tommy Mattonie's Coastal Cafe indulges yearnings for New Orleans chow and Floribbean tacos. Mother Earth's Cafe, established in 1976, offers a mom and pop atmosphere coupled with yummy food. Emerald City Gymnastics and The Tech Center highlight this neighborhood.

Ocean City: Surrounded on almost every side by a bayou, this neighborhood is primarily residential. Thai Hut Garden and Taco Town are two of the local eateries that line the route 188. Racetrack Powersports stocks all motor bike and accessory needs.

Living in Ocean City

Ocean City tops the state of Florida like a cherry perched on a decadent ice cream sundae after a productive work week. This little pseudo-city offers the pleasures of the beach, warm climates, lovely living accommodations, shopping, boating, leisure activities and delicious food. Ocean City presents many boating docks where boats can be slipped into the ocean for fishing, sunning, picnicking on the water, swimming, tubing, water skiing or exploring the Chocktawhatchee Bay. Peruse the Rock Shop for holistic medicine or indulge your creative side with a trip to the Porcelain Studios for airbrush kits and painting. Send the bike racing experts to the Racetrack Powersports for bike ogling, sports paraphernalia, and vehicle parts. Take shopping to the discount favorites such as Kohls, Dollar General, Sam's Club, Kmart and Walmart. Lace up those sparkly dancing shoes and explore group, solo, or couple dance lessons offered at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio or Katherine's Studio One Dance. If watching others dance or act seems more enjoyable, scroll through the website for Stage Crafters Community Theatre, checking the many show listings and varying ticket prices. For a 3-course dinner show that promises "comedy, mystery, and murder while you dine," navigate the internet to the website for Act4Murder. If nature and hiking shoes are more appealing, unfold the state map of Florida to chart a road trip to Blackwater Heritage State Trail, Nature Coast State Trail, or the Withlacoochee State Trail. If nature viewed from the comfort of a nice ride seems better than hiking, zoom along scenic highways such as Pensacola Scenic Bluffs Highway, Florida Keys Scenic Highway or The Ridge Scenic Highway. Mentioning swimming seems odd, but swimming options abound whether ocean specific, fresh water, pool preferences or amusement parks. Big Kahuna's Water and Adventure Park might fit the swimming bill perfectly with a lazy river, wave pool and water slides. If these close amusement parks are not enough, jump in the car and drive about six hours to Orlando, the capital of Disney amusement parks. Welcome to Ocean City, Florida!

Living in Ocean City

Ocean City tops the state of Florida like a cherry perched on a decadent ice cream sundae after a productive work week. This little pseudo-city offers the pleasures of the beach, warm climates, lovely living accommodations, shopping, boating, leisure activities and delicious food. Ocean City presents many boating docks where boats can be slipped into the ocean for fishing, sunning, picnicking on the water, swimming, tubing, water skiing or exploring the Chocktawhatchee Bay. Peruse the Rock Shop for holistic medicine or indulge your creative side with a trip to the Porcelain Studios for airbrush kits and painting. Send the bike racing experts to the Racetrack Powersports for bike ogling, sports paraphernalia, and vehicle parts. Take shopping to the discount favorites such as Kohls, Dollar General, Sam's Club, Kmart and Walmart. Lace up those sparkly dancing shoes and explore group, solo, or couple dance lessons offered at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio or Katherine's Studio One Dance. If watching others dance or act seems more enjoyable, scroll through the website for Stage Crafters Community Theatre, checking the many show listings and varying ticket prices. For a 3-course dinner show that promises "comedy, mystery, and murder while you dine," navigate the internet to the website for Act4Murder. If nature and hiking shoes are more appealing, unfold the state map of Florida to chart a road trip to Blackwater Heritage State Trail, Nature Coast State Trail, or the Withlacoochee State Trail. If nature viewed from the comfort of a nice ride seems better than hiking, zoom along scenic highways such as Pensacola Scenic Bluffs Highway, Florida Keys Scenic Highway or The Ridge Scenic Highway. Mentioning swimming seems odd, but swimming options abound whether ocean specific, fresh water, pool preferences or amusement parks. Big Kahuna's Water and Adventure Park might fit the swimming bill perfectly with a lazy river, wave pool and water slides. If these close amusement parks are not enough, jump in the car and drive about six hours to Orlando, the capital of Disney amusement parks. Welcome to Ocean City, Florida!
