This is a beach on the east coast that in my opinion has the best boardwalk! there are many types of foods something for everyone! I love Dumsers Hommade Ice cream and Thrashers French fries the best breakfast is A made while you wait donor at Fracured Prune. They are all types of games and rides for all ages the street entertainers are fun to watch. the hotel were we stay is right on the boardwalk it is the plum plaza with a fabulous porch to sit on and watch the people the ocean and people on the beach>

There is not much I can say bad about ocean city the only thing that could be bad is the water is unpredictable so one needs to take clothes that are for cold and warm/hot weather
