There are several great places to eat in Ocean City, but you’ll definitely want to get french fries from Thrasher’s (401 S. Boardwalk) and salt water taffy from Dolle’s (500 S. Atlantic Avenue).  Grab lunch from The Dough Roller (3rd Street and Boardwalk) and ice cream for dessert from Dumser’s (12305 Coastal Highway).  Don’t forget to bring back caramel popcorn from Fisher’s (200 S. Boardwalk).

Marty’s Playland is one of the few places in Ocean City that’s open year-round.  No matter what sort of game you like to play, you’ll find it at Marty’s.  It’s a coin-operated arcade, so no pesky tokens.  They’re open from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m.
