Are the shops on the Boardwalk open after Labor Day?Submitted by Richard M, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania on July 9, 2018
Definitely!! There are shops on the boardwalk that are open year round. I would say that probably 90% are open until the middle of October. So you have nothing to worry about. Come and enjoy all the boardwalk sights, sounds, and don't forget the great food!View all answers to this question (5) »

My family is going on vacation to OCMD for the first time ever this year from July 8th to 15th. On the way home, I'm catching a flight from Newark to Spain at 5:30 p.m. How bad would you expect traffic to be in that direction? I'm trying to plan when I need to leave by.Submitted by David W, Broad Brook Connecticut on July 6, 2018
I would leave at noon. I would not expect heavy traffic, but better safe than sorry. It is a straight shot to the airport from Ocean City.View all answers to this question (3) »
What day of the week/time of day is the best to visit the beach?Submitted by Frances S, Charlotte North Carolina on July 6, 2018
It depends. I love the weekends as they are busier and more alive. My lovely wife loves week days as they are less crowded. Honestly, any time is a great time during the summer. The beach is less crowded after 3 pm and before 11 am.View all answers to this question (4) »

Essentially that is correct. You buy time by the hour. If you download the Parkmobile app you can always add time remotely.View all answers to this question (3) »

We're coming from East Berlin, PA to OCMD. What route do you think we should take to avoid tolls?Submitted by Vickie T, Dover Pennsylvania on July 5, 2018
I'm 20 minutes away from you in Hanover, Pa and I always travel down towards (795/695) Baltimore onto 97 then Rt 50 over the Bay Bridge. Rt 50 takes you right into Ocean City. The only toll fee is at the bridge and it's only $4.00.
You could go east over towards Delaware and take Rt 13 South but that will take longer to arrive in OC. I also I'm not familiar with that route as I don't know if its a 2 or 4 lane hwy all the way into Maryland.
