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:

Donald's Duck Shop in the Gold Coast Mall just announced they are closing their doors for good. I'm so sad about this because it was one place we always enjoyed going to and have been there at least one time each visit to OC for the last 20 years. They always had such nice things for sale rather than the junk that stores like Sunsations sells. I always wanted to buy one of the beautiful wind chimes they sell, but never could bring myself to spend that much $$ on a windchime. Now I wish I had. Hopefully this won't be the beginning of the end for that mall. Peebles, 3...
I didn't see this thread so I thought I'd start it. I like talking about the Ocean City of my youth, and I thought others might, also. I'd love to hear personal experiences or stories relating to the Ocean City of yesteryear. Circa: 1976. I'll begin with one experience. When I was in my 20's, my girlfriend and I went to the Bonfire one night just for drinks and the hope of finding the love of our lives. Back then, the Bonfire was a very upscale restaurant and night club. Anyway, a man called us over and introduced us to two men, one of them being Bobby...
I'm working on a book on Ocean City history that will cover the period from about 1950 until today. I'm looking for interesting previously unpublished color photos of interesting Ocean City places, events, people, or other unique things. Some things I'm particularity looking for are pictures of: - Earlier versions of the Boardwalk Tram - Old mini golf courses, especially the Arctic Course near Somerset Street or or the Old Pro courses that used to be at 65th Street - Supersign! (The advertising boat from the 1980s) - Shantytown - 45th Street Village in the 1980s or...
