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 don't think there a worst food thread on here yet, so a question to everyone is, what is the worst place you ever ate at in OC. This ought to get interesting..... Mine would have to be Paul Revere's first, and English's second. Those are our only bad experiences in OC. Between the food and the atmosphere is what makes me never want to go there again. English's is closed now, maybe something good will take over.
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...
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.

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...
