Most of the traditional bars or clubs will not allow people under 21 in the evening, but there are some other options:
There are many more casual restaurant than club type places that offer bands and DJs. I'd call some of them and see if they can accommodate you. Some solid options are: Fish Tales (22nd on the bay, 410.289.0990), BJs (75th on the bay, 410.524.7575), Coins (28th, 410.289.3100), Macky's (55th on the bay, 410.732.5565), Harborside (West OC at the harbor, 410.213.1846), Beach Barrels (443.664.5773).
I'd also call Fager's (60th on the bay, 410.524.5500). They specialize in bachelorette parties and may be able to help you.
I recently ran across a new charter cruise company that could perhaps help you with a booze / booze-less cruise. I have not tried them yet, but they look promising. They are OC Swim Call. You can reach them at 443.235.4950 and see if they may be able to help you setup a fun night.
As far as fun tings to do, here are a few ideas:
If you like art, take a trip to the Art League Gallery on 94th Street. I go here almost every time I am in town. Their exhibits change monthly, and I always find something interesting to look at there.
If your group likes an adventure in the great outdoors, consider a kayak trip. I've been out several times with Assateague Outfitters - they do a great job and the trips are a lot of fun. Plus, you will see the famous Assateague wild horses! No experience required. I've been out with people from age 8 to age 70 and everyone had a great time!It will be plenty warm enough in early May to take one of thee trips - the Coastal Bays are shallow and the water warms up quickly.
If anyone likes to gamble, visit The Casino at Ocean Downs, about 5 miles outside of OC on Route 589, Racetrack road, about 1/2 mile north of Route 50.
Have a great time with your friends in OC!
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.
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.
