OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — Ocean City officials say a record number of people visited the resort over the Memorial Day weekend.

Officials estimate that 281,895 people came to Ocean City. Ocean City Communications Director Donna Abbott says there has not been a crowd that big since 1993 when an estimated 278,468 people visited the town.

Abbott says town officials had been expecting only about 250,000 people to visit last weekend.

    What did they do have a little old blind Arab sit with a clicker & count them as they came in? Wa croc of ^&%$#@ this phony report is. O.C. is a cesspool & Miami beach without the palm trees.

    Glad I didn’t see your sorry ass there, WillieJoe. My guess is that we won’t run into fine, upstanding citizens like yourself when we return in a few months. The city is better off with the likes of you staying away as far as possible.
