Have fun in OC ins September.It's a great time of year to be there!
Perhaps you are referring to Garden of Eden Orchards in Salisbury. I don't know anything about them, but here is their webpage.
Enjoy a sweet peach in OC!
Restaurants with great sunset views
Fager's Island (sunsets timed to the 1812 overture!)
The Hobbit (one of my favorite places - spectacular sunset views)
If you want something quieter, try the Northside Park Pier, 9th Street Park pier or Sunset Park; they are also great places to see the sunset.
If you want a place really off the beaten path try this: Park on 78th Street on the west side of Coastal Highway (just north of the Bayside Skillet). Walk to the west end of the street. You will see a small path leading towards the bay there. Follow the path through the vegetation and it will take you to some areas with great views of the bay and the suns setting in the western sky. I haven't been there since last year, but this path has been there for years, so it should still be there. Note that at high tides this path might get a little flooded, but with no more than a couple of inches of water.
Hope you see a great sunset in OC!
First you take the Shuttle Bus from the Ferry terminal to the Park and Ride lot where you can connect to the DART bus. You can take the DART bus to the Bus Station in North Ocean City where you can connect with an Ocean City bus to take you to Seacrets at 47th Street.
See this link for the Shuttle Bus service info and schedule. I belive this is a free service.
You want to take DART Bus Route 208 to Ocean City. See this link for more info and schedule. I think the fare is $1 per ride or $2.10 per day.
The Ocean City Bus is $1 a ride or $3 to ride all day. See this link for more info and schedule.
Have a great trip to Ocean City!

Dogs are allowed in certain areas of the beach at the nearby Assateague National Seashore, but not Assateague State Park. Here is the info from the National Seashore website:
Pets are permitted in the Maryland portion of the National Seashore. All pets must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet at all times.
Pets are completely prohibited in the following areas:
- all backcountry campsites
- nature trails

- north of the State Park to the Ocean City inlet
- the entire Virginia portion of Assateague Island*
*Pets are prohibited in the entire Virginia portion of Assateague Island, even in your car. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service manages nearly all of the land area on the Virginia portion of Assateague Island as a National Wildlife Refuge.Have a great time in OC!
You cannot cook, grill or have a fire on the beach without a permit.
This document provides more information on the regulations and how to apply for a bonfire permit. Although the document focuses on bonfires, it applies to grilling and cooking on the beach too. There is a $75 fee for the permit plus a $100 deposit that is refunded only if the Fire Marshall's inspection indicates the area was cleaned up and all fire related material was removed from the site.
Have fun in OC!
There is plenty of public parking lots in this area, and normally it would not be a problem to find parking there. If you go 12-15 August you should be fine. There are lots of municipal parking lots where you can park for a small fee using either the Cale Parking machine for the municipal lots and street parking (see pict below) or the booths at the inlet parking lot. You can get a list of parking lots, locations, and parking fees here.
However, 16 August the Dew Tour starts. Parking will be really tight at the south end of town during this event. If you want to go down there then see this page for parking informtion and shuttle bus services.
If you park on a street or lot at the south end of town look for the Cale Parking machines to prepay your parking fee.
Have a great time in OC!
