    # of visitors on labor day weekend

    I was reading an article on www.oceancitytoday.net and it said that 268,840 people were in ocean city that weekend. So it looks like it was a successful weekend for O.C.

    They said it was more then last year, and as most business owners would agree it was "ok". I think the seniment is that it could have been a little better, you literally had a Baltimore news station telling people not to come to OC. The weather channel people where echoing similar comments, then by Thursday many decided to keep their plans. Some came Friday. It was a good weekend, didn't seem as crowded only because there are more people here during the peak of August..... upwards of 300K so it always seems not as busy.

    Seemed really busy to me. Our beach was pretty crowded even though you really couldn't swim on Saturday, and many restaurants had people waiting outside--something I didn't even see in August. Because Monday was a nice day, I think many people stayed through the day rather than leaving early Monday morning. I would say it was a successful weekend compared to other Labor Day weekends.

    Does anyone know how many are expected to be in town for Bike Week? I know of at least 3 for sure I'm spending the day today packing and getting everything ready to leave tomorrow.

    Yes! Stay away! This year my husband and I have decided that we're going to try boogieboarding..... now I have zero athletic abilities and am a pretty big chicken, so this is a big deal for me. We have the boards already and everything. Hopefully Igor won't ruin our good time or we'll be boogieboarding in the pool at the condo!

    It will be a busy weekend, we have some in town already. I think we should see upwards of 200K people in town, Bike Week is not only a great economic boost but the bikers who visit seem to be a good group as a whole. The service industry appreciates them as well everyone else.



    Weather will be nice too.
