Description

What used to be a tiny fishing village is now one of the top East Coast beach destinations--Ocean City, Maryland. The best thing about East Coast beaches is the boardwalks, and Ocean City has three miles of 'em. Selling everything from old fashioned salt water taffies to quirky beach gear, the boardwalk is home to everything you'd want to do or buy while at the shore. Families will find good old fashion fun, shoppers will find over 40 outlet stores, and the outdoorsy will find superb golf, nature trails, and water adventures. And if you happen to be one of those people who likes to eat, food in Ocean City may ruin your diet, but the crab cakes, East Coast pizza, fried chicken and taffy will definitely leave you wanting more. Lastly, Ocean City does its best to keep your vacation both affordable and fun--offering a surprising amount of completely free entertainment.

The weekends..if you're on the boardwalk it is crazy
AVOID the buffet on the boardwalk with the line. It is dirty and gross. We got there as soon as it opened and it was absolutely filthy and disgusting. Worse than a dive restaurant.
