Fitness Friday | Ocean City, Maryland

Festiva destinations are located near some of the best natural areas in the country. The ocean, the mountains, the lakes and rivers of this great country are all nearby and yours for exploring. That’s why we’ve selected these beautiful places as vacation spots.

And while it may be obvious that time off is good for your health, did you know that timeshares themselves make it easy to stay current with your fitness routine while on vacation?

A recent survey from the American Resort Development Association (ARDA) and conducted by research group Leger, found that more than half (54%) of Americans enjoy fitness activities while on vacation, and timeshare owners are leading this group with nine out of 10 stating they perform fitness activities on vacation. In addition to their proximity to fitness-friendly activities, which we’ll discuss shortly, timeshares offer fully equipped kitchens for healthy, local, fresh meals, the square footage needed for a quick in room workout without disturbing others, and longer stays with which to try different fitness activities.

On this Fitness Friday, let’s shine a spotlight on some of the fun family activities near our resort locations that you can do to stay active on your next vacation.

Staying Active in Ocean City

When staying at Festiva’s Coconut Malorie Resort, there are lots of ways to stay active other than going to the beach. Ocean City’s health & fitness activities include spas, yoga, biking, walking tours, and watersports such as kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, and guided eco tours.

Try OC SUP Fitness stand up paddleboarding to try out the fastest growing water sport in the world. Paddle around the serene waters of the bay and get a good workout in as well.

For a unique way to chill out in the summer heat while staying active, the Carousel Ice Skating Rink doesn’t disappoint. This is an indoor rink located inside the Carousel Hotel. Strap on your skates and burn some calories, year round.
