The easiest way, in my opinion would be to open an Instagram account, and upload them with hashtag #OCMD.  They will be entered in the Lucky Summer of 13 photo contest.

You can catch the tram anywhere on the boardwalk at any time it passes.  But the main terminals are located at the southern end at the inlet, and at the northern end at 27th St.  You pay a fare each time you board.

I recommend Enterprise Rental Car. They have an office on Route 50 right outside of OC where you can rent a car and then drop it of in DC. The address is 11809 Ocean Gateway Suite 1. You can reach then at 410.213.0886 or get more info here.

I am a fire performer and will be visiting OCMD this weekend. Does anyone know if I am allowed to spin fire on the beach without getting in trouble? I was able to do so in Outer Banks but that is not the same kind of beach. This is not a ground fire nor will I be burning anything other than the gas I soak my tools in. Thanks!

Good morning!  You are correct. Ocean City is much more different then the Outwr Banks. No amusement parks. No boardwalk. No boardwalk tram. No municipal busses. No soundest. And no Thrashers, Fishers, Sumsers, etc.  with just a sampling of attractions we offer,  OC attracts thousands of more visitors. While I believe your act would be very entertaining, I am sure that getting a permit to do this might run into a few roadblocks for safety concerns. That being said, you can always check with city hall on this. 

How much is a bus ride? How often does it operate? Also where is a good place for crabs & beer?

The bus will cost $1.00 for one ride or $3.00 for all day.  I like the Crab Bag or Blue for crabs.  Both serve beer so that will not be an issue.

Thinking of coming down for a long weekend in October. Question is two-fold: how is the weather (both air and water) in early-mid October? Nice enough to play with a 2 year old on the beach (with some warmer clothing on)? Are there any special activities happening in the first two weekends of October?

I have been down several times in October. The weather is generally nice then, and we usually go on the beach in early October and spend several hours there. Sometimes the kids go in the water, especially early in the month (keep in mind the lifeguards are no longer on duty).  Of course, you can get a really warm or really cold or stormy day, so it is impossible to know the weather for sure. One time we were down on Columbus Day weekend and it was in the high 80s!

Columbus Day Weekend, 10-13 October, is Endless Summer Cruizin'. This is a great event. Thousands of classic cars will be in town, and even if you are not a car person, they are fun to see and watch cruise on Coastal Highway. They have a car parade Saturday and Sunday morning on the boardwalk (See picture below - starts about 8am) and the inlet and Convention Center Parking lots will be filled with classic cars.

Have fun in OC in July

Hi! I am going to the boardwalk the 11th October. Is everything opened during autumn? Thank you!!! :) Rachel

Most of the shops on the Boarwalk will be open but with reduced hours.  In town you will find almost all of the restaurants still open and offering great Happy Hour prices.  The water is still pretty warm.  I have gone in the ocean in October lots of times! 

What's the exact address of the beach? I mean for GPS

Lisa,

My car GPS recognizes Coastal Highway, Ocean City, MD  21842.  If you want a central OC location you can select 4100, which is in the area of the Convention Center.

Thank you,
