A visit to Ocean City Recapped

Those seeking for a peaceful weekend by the shore avoid summer resorts at their peak like a plague, unless if it's Ocean City. The ten miles of amusement parks, boisterous boardwalks, and broad Atlantic beach become filled with hordes of visitors, especially during college Spring Break. But the crowds are always worth it at the Eastern Shore's number one summer resort. There's no wonder why Ocean City is always booked year-round, the use of the 10-mile coastlines are for free. Itineraries ranging from golf tournaments, seaside weddings, and family fishing are enjoyed at will. At night, the coastline transforms into a venue of different amusements. Guests choose from rides, performances, or arcades. There's the Boogie on the Beach, Catch a free Movie Under the Stars, and Enjoy Sundaes in the Park for free. The White Marlin Capital of the World may seem to be too crowded at times, but you can always find an escape into Assategue Island National Seashore. The 37-mile stretch of undeveloped marshland may offer that peaceful weekend, but try it only after you've reaped all the freebies.

Fun, friendly, many things to do and see. Been coming since the 1950's. Have seen many changes but the city has managed the growth well. Wish we could go back to how it looked in the 1950's, but time waits for no one.
