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:

Think twice before visiting ocean city Maryland. The beaches are extremely dirty, the crabs are of poor quality, most of the hotels are run down filthy & nasty, and the police are always looking to ticket tourists to pull in revenue. I literally saw five cop cars back to back ticketing people. Also, the crime rate is high, especially vehicle break-ins. If you think you will have a peaceful nights sleep, think again, honking horns throughout all hours of the night, even if you are not near the boardwalk. Ocean city is a joke not a real vacation destination spot to take...
My wife and I made a spur of the moment trip down to Sunfest this past weekend. We arrived in OC early Thursday afternoon and left Friday evening. Apart from missing our children, it was a great two days. When we arrived, we had a small lunch at the Decatur Diner on 611. This is becoming a tradition once we arrive in town. She and I split an order of Decatur fries and cheesesteak sub. Both were excellent as was the service and their iced tea is always fresh, something we have trouble finding in OC. Thursday evening, she and I revisited a place we havent...
