There is no easy public transportation between the airport and North Ocean City. Unfortunatly the regional bus service, Shore Transit, does not have a stop at the airport.

Your best option is to take a Taxi which will cost about $60. Uber is also available in Salisbury; find out more here.

Restrictions on RV parking depend on what time of year you plan to be in OC. Note that at any time of year, sleeping overnight in any vehicle (including RVs) parked on public property is prohibited.

Here are the parking rules for large vehicles:

Between 1 May and 31 October, RVs and other oversized vehicles may not park in any municipal lot, public street, or alley in Ocean City (an oversized vehicle is defined as 21 feet, 2 inches or more in length and 6 feet, 8 inches in width, or needing more than one parking space). However, RVs may aprk at the West OC Park and Ride lot anytime, but cannot be left there overnight.

For more information on parking in OC, see this website, or call the Ocean City Police Department at 410.723.6610.

Here are a few options:

Dunes Manor is oceanfront at 28th, and has a hot-tub and heated indoor/outdoor pool (my kids swam there one year right around Christmas and it was plenty warm).

Holiday Inn Oceanfront at 67th Street has a heated indoor pool with a separate hot tub pool.

The Clarion is oceanfront at 101st Street, and has a heated indoor pool and a whirlpool in their Spa.

Holiday Inn & Suites on the boardwalk at 17th Street has several pools including a heated indoor pool, two outdoor pools, and a heated outdoor hot tub. However, the hot tub may only be open in-season

There are a few other really good sources of OC info out there that you can request or view online. They include:

You can also get all kinds of information once you get to town form the Visitors Center at the south end of Convention Center at 40th Street.

Leashed dogs are allowed on the boardwalk and beach from now until the end of April.

Dogs are not allowed on the beach or boardwalk in Ocean City anytime between 1 May and 30 September. Leashed dogs are allowed in OC's many parks year round. There is also a Dog Park on 94th Street. See this site for how to access the dog park.

Dogs are allowed in certain areas of Assateague National Seashore. See the Assateague National Seashore regulations here.

We are thinking of coming down for a long weekend over Easter. Will the Boardwalk be open for the weekend? Do you have other ideas of activities for the long weekend with teens?

There is a lot to do both on and off the Boardwalk.  Many, probably half, of the stores will be open as will some of the Trimper's games.  The rides will not be open.  Most restaurants will be open around town.  The movies, laser tag, bowling and indoor mini-golf are good options for teens.  A trip to Berlin, MD and Rehoboth are also fun activities.

There are no advanced voucher sales for the Beach Bus. You just pay each day as you ride the Beach Bus. The cost is $3/day to ride all day.

Senior Citizen's can get annual passes. See here for more info.

If you mean are dogs allowed there, then the answer is "yes," as long as the dogs are on a leash. Leashed dogs are allowed in all of OC's parks.

Dogs are not allowed on the beach or boardwalk in Ocean City anytime between 1 May and 30 September. There is also a Dog Park on 94th Street. See this site for how to access the dog park.

I recommend calling the Sold Waste Department before you put something out for pick-up.  There are several items that are excluded from pick-up.  Just give the friendly people at Solid Waste a call and they can give you the details.

To be a vendor for Springfest or Sunfest you need to work with the Recreation and Parks Department Special Events group. You can access the Sunfest Vendor Applications from this page and the Springfest vendor applications from this page.  The application has lots of useful information. For each of these events there is a $25 non-refundable application fee  and not all applicants receive spots as these are juried shows where vendors are selected based on their specific wares. Prices for arts and crafts booths for 2017 are $635. The application forms provide detailed directions and much more information. You can contact the Special Events group via  their webpage or call them at 410.250.0125 to find out more. Applications for Sprinfest were due 1 March 2017 and applications for Sunfest are due 1 June 2017.
