View Full Version : First Trip to OC

05-15-2013, 07:17 AM
We are making our first trip to OC next week Thurs. May 23rd, just for an overnight check it out type of deal (we usually vacation on Hatteras island). I would like to purchase some Steamed crabs Friday afternoon(for a party Saturday back home) before I head back to PA. Can someone let me know what to expect as far as cost (bushel/ 1/2 bushel) and maybe a good place to call to pre-order so they are ready to be picked up when I leave. We are staying on 17th street in Holiday OCsuites. Any tips for things that are a must to check out would be helpful also. It is me and my wife with our 16 year old daughter.

BLU crabhouse behind embers is a great place to go, and very nice outside dining
