This was a cute little shop on the Ocean City Boardwalk. We went in to look for kites-but there was so much more. We bought a kite for our grandson for Christmas.

As a first time visitor to Ocean City I knew I wanted to check out The Kite Loft. I had seen some people flying kites on the beach and when I took my first trip to the boardwalk I was impressed with the variety of kites they had on display on the beach in front of the store. I went in expecting to see some pretty cool kites, but didn’t realize that the store is actually quite large and also carries a large variety of wind socks, wind spinners, flags, wind chimes and more. I honestly went in out of curiosity about the kites and ended up leaving with some wind chimes. Even if I hadn’t made a purchase, it’s enjoyable to walk through the store and browse the unique items.

I used to vacation in Ocean City, Maryland many years ago with my family. This is my family’s most favorite place to purchase kites of various themes, designs, shapes, colors, sizes and prices for my family. Their selection of kites is quite expansive.

My children still have their kites from here after many years of use. I returned here recently with my son to purchase a kite for his son. We purchased their Thunderbolt kite for $34.99. I also purchased two spools of kite string for $6 and $7 each, respectively. My total bill was $52. I will continue to return here for our family kites and related items.

Popped in to treat the hubby and daughter with nicer kites than the cheesy tourist shops sell. Fantastic staff that was beyond accommodating, knowledgeable and helpful. Each are thrilled with their purchases and we had an amazing flying experience. Definitely recommend paying a visit and trying your hand and something so simple yet fun!!

Great staff! Super friendly and very knowledgeable. They also offer free lessons for all types of kite flying! We visited during a kite festival and it was just a wonderful experience. We have visited OCMD several times this year and have already purchased 2 kites from here!

Just walking past this place gives my heart a lift seeing all the fun, colorful flags, spinners and streamers outside taking advantage of the beach’s windy breeze! It’s the picture of what a beach boardwalk store should look like. Yes, it can be a bit pricey, but there’s nothing wrong with an occasional splurge. You’ll find a large selection of merchandise that’s fun to browse, even if you don’t buy a thing. I bought a double flower garden spinner that I absolutely love; a great souvenir of an enjoyable trip to Ocean City. This is a unique store and I haven’t been to another like it.

Bought my second kite from these folks yesterday. First kite, maybe 5-6 years ago, was a simple one-line kite, and I still have and use that. But I wanted a 2-line stunt kite, so I went in and asked, and learned a lot about the different varieties. After purchasing my new kite I was directed outside to the free flying lessons, where Daniel helped me figure out how to launch the kite and keep it aloft, plus a few basic tricks (which I still have to practice!). All in all a fantastic shopping experience.

If they don't have a type of kite, it doesn't exist. Our grandchildren were mesmerized. Very helpful and walked out with more than I anticipated. Very friendly and helpful, although sometimes language is a problem since most clerks seemed to be from the old Soviet bloc. You will enjoy just looking around.

This is by far my favorite shop in Ocean City. It is full of interesting and creative gifts from kites to wind chimes to puzzles to flags. It is a pleasure just to walk around inside. The prices seem very reasonable to me.
