Freddie,The boardwalk never closes!  That's the beauty of Ocean City!  More and more merchants, businesses and restaurants are staying open year round.... now, it may be for limited hours, only on the weekends or only when there is nice weather on the weekends, but it's worth the risk to come to town anyway LOL...... there's a ton to do and a ton of businesses stay open year round these days!

By April you should find the majority of shops open on the weekends.  By May they are open during the week as well.

The boardwalk is open year round. At this time of year about half the shops are open on weekends (if the weather is decent) and only a few during the week. More and more will open more and more will often every week from now until mid-May. By then most places are open everyday.

The boardwalk is always open and available for walking and bike riding. But the rides and such don't open unitl Memorial Day Weekend. Beginning in April, you'll find shops opening more on the weekends and places like Thrasher's Fries and Fisher's Popcorn will open for limited hours on the weekends as well.  Once you get into May and Springfest weekend, things really pick up and places will stay open during the week. But rides and games will hold off until the big holiday weekend in May.

Freddie,

The boardwalk never closes.  Only some of the businesses close.  You would find a lot open this weekend in fact and the closer you get to Memorial Day, the more you will find open.

The boardwalk never closes, you can walk the boards anytime you want. The shops, restaurants, games and so forth are on their own schedule. As of mid March things are starting to gear up for the season.
