My boyfriend and I are coming out June 22 - 27 and are wondering what we can do for fun. We are 28 years old and we are pretty much open for anything. Where do you recommend staying? What restraunts are the best in town? Any bonfires? Sunset Cruises?

Look into a condo - provides more space and all the amenities of home for about the same rate you will pay for a hotel room. I highly recommend www.cbvacations.com and Breezy Kammermeier. She's helped us find the perfect condo every year. Hotels - I would recommend the Grand Hotel, Princess Royale, Castle on the Sand, or for upscale - Hilton. Restaurants - if you've never been to Seacrets you have to go and see if for yourself. Great bayfront dining, excellent drinks, try the jerk chicken - yummo! Fishtales is great b/c you get bayfront dining, in a casual atmosphere. They even have kite swings for the adults. Brass Balls - oceanfront dining, definitely eat outside on the deck if weather permits. Green Turtle North - game room on the 2nd floor is great. Check out the Sunny Day catalog when you get in to OC as well as the local newspapers. They will tell you all the upcoming activities, events, as well as many of the local activities that provide discounts. Hope you have a great vacation!

There are many really nice hotels in Ocean City. On the boardwalk, I like Tidelands Carribean. Off the boardwalk, I like the Princess Royale. Also, great places to eat are in abundance. Of course, you have to get Thrasher french fries on the boardwalk. We also eat at Phillip's Buffet. It is great food!

The list is endless. First, hit the beach during the day time and on your first evening go to the very south end of OC and explore the boardwalk, get some boardwalk pizza, Thrashers Fries, and Fishers Popcorn. See the Jesus sand sculptures, Ocean Gallery, Edwards, and the Kite Loft. Play a couple of games on the boardwalk, win a stuffed animal and ride the ferris wheel. Whole on the ferris wheel, take pics of the OC area. You may also want to walk out to the end of the pier and watch people fish or just enjoy the sites. Some classic OC restaurants include: Phillips, Harrisons Harbor Watch, and Fish Tales. For some night life check out Seacrets. For an amazing sunset experience and dinner check out Fagers Island. The Angler Restaurant has a after dinner cruise. You can also take a daytime cruise on a relaxing pontoon boat to Assateague Island or a speed boat on the ocean. Get at least one evening of miniature golf in at one of the many themed golf courses along Coastal Highway. Your only problem is getting to see a fraction of attractions in a short period of time.

Many things to do in OC for all ages. Arcades, walking the boardwalk, riding bikes, go carts, Jolly Rodgers Amusement parks and so on. Many pool bars and taverns to hang out in during your stay too. For food ideas, Anthony's on 17th for lunch is a must, Phillips Seafood buffet is OC best and Thrashers fries on the boardwalk are a great snack. Places to stay that I recommend are Hotel Monte Carlo, Commander, Park Place and Tidelands. Have fun.

Check out the accommodations on ococean.com. When going with friends I like to stay at the Atlantic Oceanfront Inn on 45th street. It's clean, oceanfront, and very reasonably priced. We can walk to both Seacrets and Fager's in the evenings, which we love! There is so much to do in OC. Ride bikes in the morning on the boardwalk, rent jet skis, play mini golf, shop the outlets in DE, ride the boardwalk rides, etc. Of course laying out on the beach, playing catch, reading, napping, and relaxing is also great. My favorite places to eat are: Dough Roller - breakfast Fractured Prune - donuts Phillips by the Sea - seafood fine dining Fagers - for the deck and the view of the sunset! La Hacienda - Mexican Kohr Brothers - soft serve Dumsers - good diner food and hand dipped ice cream Belly Busters/Anthonys/Tubbys - sandwiches/subs Hoopers - all you can eat crabs & seafood Thrashers - french fries Fisher's - popcorn Have fun!!
