The Beach Bus runs all year and is $3 per day.  It runs parallel to the Boardwalk on Ocean Highway.  It is about one block of the Boardwalk.

Are birthday parties allowed on the beach? Are there any necessary steps one must take to get the proper permit?

I would just let the town know by calling 410.289.8931.  It is free to register a party or wedding.

If one side of the road is permitted parking, but the other doesn't, it's safe to say that it's OK to park here for free, yes? I'm specifically referring to Old Landing Rd.

I beleive you can park on the south side of Old Landing Road for free without a permit, but I suggest calling the OC Police Department at 410.723.6610 to double check.

Hi Kyle, Yes preparation for a hurricane in OC is excellent. they keep the public very well informed. In fact I came down after Irene in 2011 and the town was very well prepared for that storm. I've also been in OC where storms are very bad. In fact so bad I've seen the water come up very far.

A good place to buy Ravens shirts is any of the t-shirts stores on the boardwalk, they usually have great prices!

All of the umbrella rental stands will set-up and take down your chair or umbrella.  All the stands are open until the end of September.

The lifeguards last day on duty is 24 September 2017. They always finish the season on the Sunday of Sunfest weekend. There are less guards on duty in September, so it is recommended you swim near a guard stand.
