(410) 213-BAJA (2252)
Baja Amusements has miniature golf, go karts, bumper boats and an arcade. There are even climbing walls, broken into three sections based on skill. There’s also a snack bar, so in case you get hungry, there are hot dogs and ice cream. It’s fun for the whole family.
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).
Boardwalk at Worcester Street
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.
Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum
401 S. Atlantic Avenue
This ode to all things weird will make your Ocean City trip complete. There are 12 galleries—each with a different theme—and over 500 exhibits. While there, you’ll see shrunken heads, two-headed animals and much, much more. Tickets are $13 for adults and $8 for children. (Children under 5 are free.)
Boardwalk and S. First Street
While you’re in Ocean City, you have to visit Trimper’s. There are over 100 rides, games and other fun things. One of the rides is an antique carousel from 1902, but they also have a haunted house, roller coaster, mirror maze, Tilt-a-Whirl and Zipper, among many others.
