Ocean City Maryland - A Family Tradition

A June 2003 trip to Ocean City by Ohio Tara

Quote: Ocean City, MD is a great place for a fun family vacation. Sure, it doesn't change much, but there is something about the familiarity of the boardwalk, Thrasher's fries, cheap T-shirts, and rides on speed boats and pleasure boats that we look forward to every year.

Best Things Nearby:The Crabcake Factory and the beach!Best Things About the Resort:We had excellent accommodations, with a spacious, wonderful Jacuzzi tub in the two-bedroom unit and two bathrooms.

The condo accommodations were excellent, and the location was ideal. It was not far from the Delaware border, close to OC, and close to the beach. They had a friendly and helpful staff.

Harrison's Harbor Watch is a wonderful, romantic restaurant that overlooks Assateague Island. The line starts early, so try to get there when they open (at 5pm) if you are up for an early diner. If you get there early, you will almost be guaranteed a window seat upon request. If you are going later, make reservations.

The broiled seafood dinner is my husband's favorite and I'm partial to the chicken dishes. A true Ocean City tradition.

Grotto's Pizza

Restaurant

Quote:
Grotto Pizza is the THE pizza to have when visiting the Ocean City area. Don't let anyone tell you Dough Rollers (located right in OC) is as good. Make the short trip - about 20 minutes - to Rehobeth Beach, DE, to get a taste of Grotto Pizza's thin crust, not-too-sweet sauce, and yummy cheese. Don't get any toppings... the Grotto purists among us go cheese-only. If you get addicted, don't worry - they will Fed Ex uncooked pizzas to you (I actually did this for my husband's birthday on a lark).

This is a fun place to shop.
