Still not convinced How about the golden splendor of the sunrise over the Atlantic and the sunset over Assawoman Bay
Every good ocean resort has a boardwalk and Ocean City is no different. Unique to Ocean City is Dumser's Dairyland; their silky shakes are comfort food! They are worth the wait and the price (about $3.00). Hear the surf and the many footsteps strolling along, not a care in the world.
Eye candy is plentiful in the delightful tourist shops that sell the regular "I've Been to Ocean City" gear that will make the folks back home grin with nostalgia. There are many more shops to explore though, each one a direct reflection of its owner. Be sure to visit The Kite Loft, the source of the splashing colors against the sand in the form of displays on the beach. Inside is a kaleidoscope of kites waiting to soar.
Don't plan on doing the South Beach Diet while you're in Ocean City. The killer place to be is Thrasher's Fries. This shop has been operating since 1929 and any other fry is nothing short of pathetic compared to these. Succulent and crisp, skins still on, hot from the fryer, be prepared for sensory overload between the smell of these fries mixed with ocean breezes. The surf pounds in the background and people are milling about, playingbut oh, that first bitecrisp and tender at the same time. Bliss.
For an extra couple of dollars, go to the border! Of Delaware, that is.
