The town of Ocean View, a beach community with parks, shops, and restaurants, is served by the high-performing Indian River School District. The town is considered a quieter alternative to nearby resort town Bethany Beach, and while Ocean View has a year-round community, about 50 percent of its housing units are for seasonal, recreational, or occasional use, according to U.S. Census data.
