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:

Stayed at a nice but old motel between 15th and 20th streets. If I knew what a hashtag was it would be "never again". Never have I seen so many rude low lifes (lives) take over the vibe of OC. The highlight was finding a cigarette smashed out on my truck bed rail. It's back up to the ol' LSD from now on. Assateague greens was in great shape.....18 holes for 29 dollars.
Well, I must be getting old. We've been going to Cruisin weekend almost from the first year (it's been going on for 25 years now) and we've always enjoyed it. We skipped a few years when the pickups got out of hand and the kids were riding in the back, throwing water on people, and just being a general PITA. Thankfully, they aren't allowed to do that anymore, but this year it didn't stop the diesel pickups from showing up in force, along with teens and ricer cars with their bumble bee exhausts. We got there Thursday and first checked out the Convention Center...
If you could bring one restaurant, store, bar, or any other business back to Ocean City, what would it be? I have four odd ones that I used to love gong to. 1. The Original Fractured Prune - You could buy bait and donuts in the same place!! 2. Sunny Carribee - This was a spice shop in the 45th Street village. 3. There was a nautical souvenir shop in the 45th Street Village as well. I don't remember the name of the place, but they had awesome nautical themed decorations, etc. 4. Lastly, this isn't really a business, but I used to love the food court at the mall...
