Is it time already for this forum to go into hibernation? Seems really quiet alot earlier this year.

I'm sure not in hibernation yet! Got the car packed to head to OC right after work. It's looking like it might be a little cool this year, but we should still be able to squeeze in some swimming.

lately this forum seems to go in spurts as far as activity goes. Sun fest starts tomorrow (19th) and runs to the 22nd, so there may be some activity on the forum this weekend.

Trip Advisor forum as well. Seems like all the regulars are disappearing and no newbies are coming along. :(

Travel Channel’s Hotel Impossible To Feature OC’s Lankford Hotel On Monday
OCEAN CITY -- A proud Ocean City Boardwalk hotel dating back nearly 90 years will get its moment on the national stage on Monday when it is featured on national television after a literal and figurative facelift over the summer.
The Lankford Hotel and its associated cottages and apartment buildings situated around 8th Street and the Boardwalk opened in 1924 and has been owned and operated by the same family for nearly nine decades spanning several generations. While the hotel has retained its early 20th century charm and has attracted many of the same visitors each summer for decades, the facility has found it difficult to compete with the newer, more modern Ocean City and its sparkling hotel chains with the latest amenities, particularly in the often tough shoulder seasons.
To that end, the family earlier this year reached out to noted hotel guru Anthony Melchiorri and his crew from the hit Travel Channel show Hotel Impossible to provide a new set of eyes and ears on some of the issues, from aesthetics to an operational standpoint. The episode on Ocean City’s Lankford Hotel, appropriately titled “Boardwalk Gold,” is set to air on Monday night on the Travel Channel at 10 p.m.
