My husband and I are looking to rent a boat slip with a lift in Northern OC or Delaware for the 2015 summer season. Do you happen to know where we could rent one?

Submitted by Stephanie M, Eldersburg Maryland on April 23, 2015

I have friends who have done this at 142nd Street Marina and have a great experience. You can reach them at 302-537-9442. I don't think they have a web page though.

Are dogs allowed on the beach?

Submitted by Pamela R, Laurel Maryland on April 21, 2015

Between May 1 and September 30 they are NOT allowed on either the beach or the boardwalk, not even in pet strollers, and must be on a leash at all other times.  

But from October 1 to April 30 they are.  

So the answer depends on when you are coming to Ocean City.

I'm a college student from Pittsburgh planning to come to OC for the summer. What are the chances I'll be able to get a job with all of the other students flocking there?

Submitted by Tricia S, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania on April 20, 2015

Your chances are excellent.  The best jobs may be lacking as the early birds tend to get those.  Google the following:  The Harrison Group employment, Ocean City Today classifieds, Coastal Dispatch Classified, and Ocean City MD employment.

I am planning to go to Ocean City this weekend. Will the beach be open and will there be any stores open on the boardwalk?

Submitted by Jackie M, Annandale Virginia on April 15, 2015

Yes, we were at the beach this past weekend and about 25% of the boardwalk stores were open.  The beach is open but there are no lifeguards on duty and the water is cold, but you can still play in the sand and enjoy the sun.
