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:

(Aug. 8, 2014) The Princess Royale hotel’s Waves of Laughter comedy show is hitting audiences with punch lines six nights a week for the rest of the summer. Johnny Watson … From dating and marriage to religion and Ocean City-specific jokes, the show for adults has never been more popular, said New Jersey comedian Dennis Ross, who’s performing alongside Johnny Watson for their fourth summer at the 91st Street hotel. That’s thanks in part to their approach to their work, Ross said. The Princess Royale hosted comedians for five years before going dark for a year, he said. When he and Watson came

Well, I know it was only there for four years, but I was sad to see Davey Jones Locker go. In the four years they were there, I enjoyed drinks at a good price with extremely friendly service. Late last month, my girlfriend and I made our first trip to Ocean City this summer, and tried the Sandy Bottoms. Unfortunately, there were a lot of loud rednecks in there, due to the fact that it was dollar Natural Light night. Now, I don't want to come off an snobbish, and I love a good dive bar, but the vibe that night just wasn't what we were looking for. We tried...
We finally managed to snag a condo in our favorite building in OC again this year and headed down the week before Labor Day. We rented from Saturday to Saturday but couldn't get down until Sunday because we were at a car show for three days first. But Sunday came and we checked into our unit around noon and while we've stayed in that building before, this had to be the nicest one yet. Gorgeous new laminate floors throughout, new furniture and a tv in every room, plus very nice patio furniture, new patio doors and new windows. Everything was clean, new appliances, and...
Ocean City, MD has always been my favorite place to visit since I can remember. While, I have ventured to other parts of the country, I have not been to all of the mid-atlantic resorts (beach towns on the Atlantic) and I wonder how they compare with Ocean City, MD. The main ones I am curious about are places like Ocean City, NJ, Virginia Beach, etc. I just want to get a feel of how these places compare/contrast with OCMD. I do like to travel and try new places but I am also conflicted on spending precious vacation time at a place that won't live up to the...
