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:

My husband and our 7 year old daughter are driving from Buffalo, NY to OC for 6 days in July. We booked a room at the Grand Hotel and Spa, and we're so excited given our miserable winter here. Since we are driving, we can bring a lot of things from home, such as beach chairs, umbrella, and sand toys. What are must needed items we need to bring? We'll probably bring some beer (Blue Light) and a c bottle of wine or two (we're celebrating our 10th anniversary while we're there). Thanks!!
While perusing several of the available real estate apps looking at places in OC, I discovered an unusual situation that exists. When trying to set up some appointments to go see them, my agent (licensed in MD, VA, DC, and DE), couldn't locate the MLS numbers in the MRIS system. It turns out, CAoR has their own system and doesn't share info with the local and national MRIS system. Kind of their way of locking out non-resident brokers. If I were a seller, I think I'd be pretty pissed. That's certainly not in the best interest of the seller. Any realtors can to share...
Sadly, last night, Pepper's Tavern's Facebook page posted that, despite their best efforts, they will not be opening for the 2015 summer season, and will close their doors. I had a lot of good times with friends at Pepper's on the Boardwalk. Unfortunately, I won't get a chance to take my fiance there (we've been to the one on 611). I'll be sorry to see the place go, and I wish all associated with the business the best for the future.
