Downtown – Boardwalk to 27th Street, is the heart of Ocean City. Downtown pops with excitement and energy. Grab a bench on the Boards and watch the crowds go by. Trimper rides and the Jolly Roger amusement pier offer entertainment for all ages, from young to thrill seeker. Take a ride on the Boardwalk tram and watch the excitement of downtown at a leisurely speed. Rent a bike or trolley and enjoy an early morning Boardwalk ride.
Go fishing off the pier, or the RT 50 Drawbridge. Enjoy bay side bars offering breathtaking sunsets, live music and outrageous nightlife. Watch the beautiful sunsets while enjoying a relaxing carriage ride along the bay.
The Boardwalk offers world famous, Thrasher’s French Fries, fresh squeezed lemonade, fresh funnel cakes and soft serve ice cream. View the unbelievable at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! After sampling Dumser’s Ice Cream and Kohr’s Frozen Custard, be sure to weigh in on who’s your favorite locals and tourists alike, have debated for years. Which one will you choose?
