This week in OC: July 10-16, 2015

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

After a dreary July 4th weekend, the we’re expecting much more ideal beach weather this weekend in Ocean City, Md. If you plan on joining us, check out these events and activities going on around town:
