Maryland Travel: The Edge Hotel at Fager's Island
Location: 201 60th St., Ocean City, Md.
Cost: $334-$384 weekdays, $385-$465 weekends.
Drive time: Three hours.
The scoop: No two of the 12 suites in this designer-chic, South Beach-breezy hotel look or feel alike. International themes (think Tibetan serene, Paris posh or African exotic) are carried out with a light hand and a sense of fun. Although you might feel far from the beach-town brouhaha, you’re still within easy walking distance of some of the best dining and nightlife. And the sunsets over the bay are spectacular.
Amenities: Some suites have double or single Jacuzzis, gas or electric fireplaces, and private balconies. Ask for one overlooking the bay, and you won’t want to leave the place. Continental breakfast is included.
Don’t miss: A standup paddle-boarding lesson or excursion on the bay with OC SUP & Fitness (ocsupfitness.com). Sept. 20-23, Ocean City hosts Sunfest, an outdoor extravaganza of Eastern Shore food and live entertainment from all over.
