I am looking for a caricature artist in town. I saw one on Boardwalk before but I can’t recall what street or shop. Would you happen to have any recommendations for where I can find one?

There is one on the Boardwalk most nights just below First Street.  He is oceanside.  He does nice work from what I have seen.

Are there any Laundromats near 133rd St or on Fenwick Island? We will be in OCMD for 11 days and our accommodations don't offer a washer or dryer. I only see two near the Inlet online.

There is one on Rt. 54 in Fenwick Island.  It is right next to the Exxon station and Rippons and across from the Walgreens on Rt. 54.

I would call City Hall for guidance -410-289-8221.  As for the Boardwalk, you would have to rent space.

There is plenty of free overnight parking in Ocean City. It starts around 4th Street and runs north.  Most of it is bayside.

The Boardwalk will be open weekdays until October.  Some hotels will close their pools on Labor Day and some will stay open until the Fall.  The water parks close as of Memorial Day.

No, according to fire laws, no grills, fires, or hibachis, etc are permitted on the beach or dunes or decks in Ocean City.  And HEFTY fines for those who do. There are public barbeques at Northside Park on 125th St. They are charcoal, and first come first served, and you are required to remove the ashes and remains afterwards.

I am not aware of any establishment with this name in Ocean City, MD. There is a store with this name in Ocean City, NJ; perhaps that is the place you are referring to.
