Global Discovery Vacations Review: Life is Good in Ocean City, MD

Ocean City, Maryland, stuffs so much to do within its three-mile Boardwalk, making it easy for visitors to plan activities in without having to go very far. Global Discovery Vacations member Joyce B. was happy to be there in the offseason, and it was just the relaxing vacation she and her husband needed. She tells us about her trip staying at the Sandy Lane Estates in this week’s Member Monday.
