The buses run all night on New Year's Eve.  About every half hour or so. There is also Uber in OC, and taxis.  

Do the buses on Coastal Highway stop only at designated stops? If so, where is that map? Or can you flag them down if you see the bus coming?

What are the beginning and end streets the bus will travel to and from? We are staying on 140th St. and are curious if we can take the bus from there to the boardwalk?

The fish need to eat so I say go surf fishing and have a blast. Hopefully the fish are biting that day.

You would need to take the Greyhound bus.  Depending upon which bus you take, the trip will be between 5 and 9 hours according to their schedules.

The Seascape was located on 15th/16th Street on the boardwalk.  It is gone now, but look for the new Hyatt Place Hotel to be open soon.

If I'm a disabled veteran, and exempt from state property tax, I'm wondering what the rate is in Ocean City? Thank you!

We can't really answer this type of question for you . You will need to contact City Hall.  They are open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  and the phone number is (410)289-8221.

Thank you for your question.

Your best place to start is by working with any of Ocean City's great realtors like Coldwell Banker  http://www.cbvacations.com ,  Long and Foster  http://www.lfvacations.com  or Holiday Real Estate  http://www.holidayoc.com.  There are more and you can check them out at http://www.ococean.com/accommodations , but for now, you can check out the websites and get an idea of costs and find a few you like and make appointments to see. 

OC is a great place to vacation and live.  Good luck to you. 

Hello! Just wondering, I know Memorial Day weekend tends to be quite busy, but what about the rest of the week? If I were to go Tuesday-Thursday the week after Memorial Day weekend, what are the chances of it being crowded? Thanks!

Memorial Day Weekend is the kick off to summer. Yes this weekend (and the weekends after)  can be very busy but Monday-Thursdays' don't really get into full force till July.

If you do want to try to miss the crowds then book a place at the northern end of Ocean City.

Places like the Comfort Inn Gold Coast or Clarion Resort Hotel come to mind.

Is there a place where I can find vendor information for events like Sunfest, Springfest and the Holiday Shoppers' Fair?
