The award-winning Ocean City Boardwalk is the 3 mile long, newly boarded home to Trimpers Amusements, Thrashers Fries, Jolly Roger Amusements, Fishers Popcorn, Dolles Candy, Kohl Bros. Ice Cream, Dumsers Ice Cream, Candy Kitchen, and many other businesses, attractions and eateries, both old and new. High above the boardwalk, you will see grand dame hotels like the Plim Plaza next to the newer high rises and condo buildings like the Grand Hotel, the Courtyard by Marriott, the Hilton, the Holiday Inn, the Howard Johnsons and the Days Inn.
The aroma of caramel popcorn, french fries with vinegar and Old Bay, and fresh baked pizza waft through the air as children’s laughter, the click-clack of the roller coaster, calls of hawkers trying to lure you into one of the game booths, the electronic sounds of the arcade, and the horn from the boardwalk tram tooting to clear it’s path echo in the background. While strolling the boards you can buy t-shirts and gold jewelry or get your hair braided or a new henna tattoo. There are luxury hotels and fine dining as well as budget motels and casual fare. Whatever your pleasure, your Ocean City vacation isn’t complete without a stop at the famous wooden boardwalk. It’s interesting, it’s reminiscent of days gone by, and it offers lots of entertainment, shopping and dining experiences that will leave your whole family exhausted, yet still wanting more. For a quick overview of all the boardwalk has to offer, continue reading:

I am a bit of a cheesesteak snob. I've been really trying lots of different places to find a good cheesesteak over the last 2 years. We have a townhouse in North OC (we are there nearly every weekend for 3 seasons) and been trying everything under the sun. Every place had some issue or another. About 6 months ago we found the place. Technically it isn't in OC, but it is about as close as you can get. The place is High Stakes in Fenwick Island (Rt on 54 next to Walgreens). Their cheesesteaks are fantastic. Their regular cheesesteaks are pretty huge too. The icing on...
I hope it's true. I hear that soon you will no longer be allowed to smoke on the beach or board walk. Anyone else hear about this?
I had heard last year that MPT was producing a documentary on Ocean City, MD. Here's the link I just found on their website. http://www.mpt.org/downeeoceanhon/ It looks like it's going to be a "slice of life" documentary rather than a history. I'm OK with that since "Once Upon a Sand Dune" (produced in the late 1990s by the Life Saving Station Museum) was a good history. I'm looking forward to April.
