Hey all, Lived in DE until I was 30 and now 35 living in Outer Banks. Want to come back to OCMD for Christmas to see family and enjoy old area for holidays. What is a good spot to visit for Christmas for husband and wife. Were regulars through early 2000's in our 20's and hit all the regular hotspots (Seacrets, BJ's, Salty Dog, Brass Balls, Purple Moose, Dumsers, Hooters, etc) and looking for what's open for Winterfest. Thanks for all the help. Will be coming up from Rt. 13 from Salisbury. Have a good one!

Hi Ryan,

Welcome back!  You will see alot of the same places open that were open back in the day.  Seacrets does offer winter hours as does Dead Freddies on 64th St (bayside).  There is also a new midtown boardwalk on 67th St.  And get this, we now have our very own Ron Jon's Surf Shop in the pre-mentioned shopping center.  Also, there is a Sweet Frog there as well. (yum).  While I am discussing things on the 60th St corridor, you may also want to check out the food at Rosenfelds.  Great corn beef AND pancakes (not together though! LOL).  Finally, one more 60th st location:  Fager's Island.  Be sure to stop in and enjoy a warm meal and a cold brew by the fireplace while watching one of OC's famous beautiful sunsets.

One of the lovliest places to stay for the holiday is the Inn on the Ocean on 10th St. on the boardwalk. It's a beautiful bed and breakfast and the owners are the nicest people. You'll only see them in the morning for breakfast, so you'll have the rest of the time to yourselves plus it is adults only. I highly recommend this place.

In addition to Ocean City, take a side trip to Berlin for their Victorian Christmas celebration. And now in Ocean City, you can take a horse drawn carriage ride!  What a beautiful way to spend a little bit of the holidays in the evening.

I hope you have a great time coming back to OCMD. The good news is that I think that all of the places you mention, except Brass Balls, will be open during the week of Christmas, at least on the weekends. If the weather is nice, some of the shops along the boardwalk will be open. If you want a really nice Christmas Dinner, I suggest Captain's Table in the Marriott at 15th Street. My family ate Christmas Dinner there a few year ago and it was very nice.

Hey Ryan, There's carriage rides which is very romantic. but where to stay is cayman suites or the fenwick inn. clarion is another great place too. I hope you have a good one too. Defintely hit Fresco's that's very nice on the bay.
