Springtime photos from Ocean City

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.

We all love summer in Ocean City, lying on the beach listening to the waves and the children laughing, feeling the warmth of the sun, and soaking it all up. But there is something to be said for a springtime visit, when instead of lying on the beach, you can walk along the beach without  stepping over people and burning your feet. In the springtime there is a feeling of a town coming out of hibernation, and you feel it yourself too, as you step outside into fresh air for the first time in a while, visit restaurants opening  up again for the season, maybe with something new on the menu,  or some new decor, and when you do meet someone on the Boardwalk, you’re more likely to nod a hello and offer a smile, than squeeze your way past with a thought that they nearly walked right into you! So we thought we’d whet your appetite for a spring visit to Ocean City with some pictures taken over the last week or two.
