So you’ll just have to come back. Ocean City is like no place else on earth! Where else could you watch the sunrise over the Atlantic only to watch it set behind the bay? Where else could you encounter a thriving and active resort town every summer which retires into a sleepy beach community every winter? Where else could you get the finest crab cakes along with the most delicious beach pizza you’ve ever tasted? Where else could you try out state-of-the-art watersports or seek the solitude of a kayak ecotour through some of the most beautifully preserved waterways on the East Coast? Ocean City has all this and more! In this issue of the Ocean City Visitors Guide, we take a more personal approach to introducing you to Ocean City. Learn about a local businessman who has used his own, personal funds to build a nature reserve behind

Welcome

T

en miles may not seem like a lot, but fill it with 3 miles of bustling boardwalk, a long stretch of beach, hundreds of shops, galleries, rides, restaurants and much more, and you’ve got one of the most active and exciting beach destinations in the country—Ocean City. Whether you are in town on a family vacation, weekend of golf or fishing, a romantic getaway or simply just passing through, there is always a reason to come to OC. Vacation days are meant for having fun and with so much activity, a diverse array of attractions and the gorgeous backdrop of the Atlantic, fun is Ocean City’s middle name. To get started on your own Ocean City adventure, claim your white, sandy, front row seat on the beach, pitch your umbrella and slather on the sunscreen. As you enjoy the soothing sounds of the surf and the warm Atlantic breezes, let all your worries melt away. Of course, the Boardwalk is the main attraction in Ocean City—packed with quirky stores, food stands, beach bars and restaurants, arcades and roller coasters, live entertainment and music—so it’s always alive with activity. Escape the crowds and enjoy one of the last preserved seascapes in the country, Assateague Island, home to the beautiful Assateague Wild Horses . Several nearby excursions beckon as well, such as extraordinary golf courses, picturesque back bays, museums, theaters, spas and more. For a day off course, go on a quick jaunt to Berlin and see why major motion picture scenes have been filmed in this charming little town. No matter if you came for a wild time or the wildlife, you’ll be amazed at all there is to see and do in and around Ocean City. Seek your pleasure and have some fun at one of America’s favorite beach destinations.

BOARDWALK

Boardwalk A WALK ON THE

Take a walk through history as you explore the boardwalk and make some memories of your own!

T

he Ocean City Boardwalk dates back to 1902. At this time, Ocean City was just emerging as a popular seaside destination. Area hotel owners were looking for an easier way for their guests to get around, so they constructed a wooden walkway, which could be rolled up and stored away during high tide and the winter months. In 1910, a permanent walkway was built, spanning about five blocks. From there, it continued to Continued on page 20 grow—by the 1920s, the boardwalk was expanded to 15 blocks.

Revel in one of our many seafood centric dishes, try a specialty craft pizza, along with a freshly created salad or a warm crock of soup. Enjoy live entertainment in our modern, nautical themed space. Dock yourself at the infamous & authentic boat bar while enjoying a craft cocktail or local brew. Outdoor seating available, live entertainment weekly, t-shirt shop, high definition TV’s, stellar carry out, beer & wine to go!

BOARDWALK

Continued from page 18 Continued from page 18

While a storm tore apart the original promenade in March of 1962, the present boardwalk was built shortly after. Since then, more and more attractions and hotels have been constructed. Today, the boardwalk extends to 27th Street, covering the distance of three whole miles. In 2012, the boardwalk underwent a complete renovation with all new wooden boards replacing the ones that had begun to deteriorate in order to keep in step with the same old-time, nostalgic feel. Today, a walk on the boardwalk welcomes a feast for your senses on Ocean City’s charming promenade. Breathe in the gentle breeze of the salty ocean air while you go for a light jog or a heart-pounding sprint. Hop onto the boardwalk tram and enjoy the view of the ocean,

or rent a beach cruiser or bring your own to enjoy a breezy bike ride down the boardwalk. There’s truly no better way to wake up and start the day. Bikes are allowed on the boardwalk from 2 a.m. to 11 a.m. on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, so wake up bright and early and start peddling! Listen to the nostalgic melodies of a carousel. One of the oldest fixtures on the boardwalk is the Herschel-Spellman carousel, dating back to 1902. In fact, it’s the country’s oldest continuously operating carousel and features two tiers of elaborately carved and painted animals. Further indulge your love for history at our museum on the boardwalk. Ocean City’s fascinating history can be recounted at the

CANDY KITCHEN

CANDY KITCHEN CELEBRATES

80 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

F

or almost a century, parents have been bringing their kids to Ocean City to experience all the sights, sounds and tastes. These kids grow up and bring their kids, sharing all the beautiful memories that made them fall in love with Ocean City. Although a lot has changed, there are some traditions that remain the same—walking the wooden boardwalk, riding the carousel at Trimper’s Amusement Park and partaking in some sweet confections at Candy Kitchen. Whether you are 3 or 93, the magic of the local candy shop is an irresistible draw, and for 80 years, Candy Kitchen has been bringing a smile to the faces of young and old alike. If you travel up the eastern seaboard from Virginia to Delaware, chances are you’ve seen a Candy Kitchen, with its bright, sunny logo. These sweet shops have a simply sweet backstory. In 1937, Ocean City entrepreneur, Sam Taustin, opened his first candy shop. Over time, Taustin opened many candy shops right on the boardwalk, giving them to his sisters to manage. In those days, it wasn’t common to see working women, and these shops gave his sisters a chance to run their own stores. At first, Taustin bought fudge and taffy from candymakers in Philadelphia. Yet after a short time, Taustin’s brother-in-law, Kurt, encouraged him to bring the candymaking in-house, beginning the tradition of homemade candy we know and love today. Candy Kitchen is still a family-run business with Taustin’s nephew, Bruce Leiner, as the current head of operations. They are not like most large candy manufacturers. Instead they strive to continue the tradition of handmade, old-fashioned candy, natural, with no preservatives, yet this is not an easy venture. Instead of being fully automated with huge lines of machinery, Candy Kitchen makes their sweets in small batches, with many of the same processes begun 80 years ago, like cooking in copper kettles over an open fire. Although it’s a labor-intensive process, Candy Kitchen sticks to traditions because visitors can tell the difference. There’s nothing quite like their homemade confections made with the finest ingredients. “We keep it simple,” says Bruce Leiner. “We use real butter, real sugar, real milk and dark chocolate, fresh cream and hand roasted nuts. The key to our recipes is the best ingredients plus consistency in our methods.” Some of Candy Kitchen’s candymaking process can be watched through the 17-foot glass wall at their 53rd Street flagship store. Visitors can actually witness the candies being made, like watching various chocolates being run through their chocolate coating enrober machine. After 80 years of business, what makes Candy Kitchen great is a tradition of excellence—candy, taffy, fudge and fun, exciting toys and novelties your whole family will love. So this summer, be sure to make this “Wonderful World of Candy” a part of your own beach tradition.

THE GOLDEN

MILE DON’T MISS OUT ON MIDTOWN OCEAN CITY!

T

he iconic boardwalk in Ocean City is a huge draw to those visiting our town—but OC doesn’t end at 27th Street. Just beyond the boards is the Golden Mile, an area of Ocean City often overlooked. The Golden Mile is most commonly known as Midtown Ocean City. It’s where the quietness of North OC meets the excitement of the south. If you’re looking for diversity, this is the place to go.

Exciting Attractions… The Boardwalk isn’t the only place to find amusement parks. If you cast your gaze north, you will find activities that everyone in your family will love. Visit thrilling amusement parks, with rides, games and endless excitement. Want to cool down? Get away from the sandy shore and visit a waterpark. They don’t have rides like that at the beach. A variety of minigolf locations offer an escape from the real world, with such themes as Hawaii, pirates and even safari. If you’re in town for the watersports, the Golden Mile has it all! On both the bayside and the beach you’ll find standup paddleboarding, kayaking, surfing and other water activities that Ocean City is known for providing. If you need a water break, you can visit a local gym, get in a game of tennis and more!

Arts and Entertainment… You’ll find them on the Golden Mile. Take in a concert or play at the Ocean City Performing Arts Center. Top headliners and touring theater companies come through this venue all the time. You can also find live music at many local restaurants. Hear some of Ocean City’s finest musicians and dance the night away. Want an evening of mystery and illusions? The whole family will love watching a magic show.

WEST Ocean City

L

ocated just over the U.S. 50 Bridge across the bay from the Boardwalk, West Ocean City is one of the fastest growing areas of Worcester County. Large homes and new businesses now take the space of what once was empty farmland. Old beach cottages have been replaced by beautiful town homes and marinas with sport-fishing yachts and charter excursions. You can also find exciting golf opportunities. West Ocean City offers a variety of attractions and recreational opportunities, including an amusement park, mini-golf, golf, boating, fishing, crabbing and more—but with far less crowds. Explore the commercial fishing harbor, and pick up some fresh seafood from a local market. There is a marina for seasonal and transient docking, fine seafood restaurants and a park and ride facility, which gives great access to the beach. One of the area’s biggest draws is the Tanger outlets, with a wealth of shopping opportunities at great prices. This central business district has an eclectic mix of hotels, shops and restaurants, and a variety of special events taking place throughout the year. Tons of activities and accommodations, combined with the friendly community of dedicated residents, puts West Ocean City at the forefront of change and development in the region.

f you’re looking for a great meal and a great experience in Ocean City, there’s no place like Macky’s Bar & Grill. Macky’s is a huge favorite with visitors and locals alike. That’s because the rustic décor, nightly live music and friendly staff make your visit feel like a tropical resort vacation. But the highlight of a visit to Macky’s has to be the private, bayside beach. Tables dot the sand, allowing patrons to eat their meals next to an open, waterside view. And every evening, as guests watch the sun dip into the west, the patriotic tune, “God Bless America” can be heard lilting in the air. The unique bayside location comes with amazing experiences you won’t find at a run-of-the-mill restaurant. In the spring and early summer, two nearby bay islands are dotted with the threatened Piping Plover. Guests at Macky’s get a front row seat as these sparrow-sized birds settle in and makes their nests. Visitors can also encounter terrapins that frequent Ocean City every summer, as well as horseshoe crabs and other marine life. Owner, Macky Stansell, has lived in Ocean City for almost 45 years. After serving in Vietnam, he worked in various food and hospitality businesses throughout the city before deciding to open his own restaurant. His first endeavor, Tio Gringo became a local sensation. When Macky’s Bar & Grill opened in 1994, Stansell found that his property’s resources couldn’t support two restaurants. So he decided to focus on the beautiful, bayside location. Why did he choose Macky’s? As he says, “you check into a hotel, do you want the waterfront or do you want the parking lot?” Experiencing the water—beautiful views, varied wildlife and peaceful shorelines—is what a day at Macky’s is all about. But all this was threatened when Macky Stansell and his wife, Pam, began noticing that the shoreline around their business was drying up. Every year, a tidal basin adjacent to Macky’s became smaller and smaller, cut off by a buildup of sand brought in by tides and storms. Even though the basin did not reside on Stansell’s property, he foresaw problems. Action needed to be taken. 32 |

THE LIVING SHORELINE

Macky’s is located in a unique habitat, a region between the ocean and the bay that’s as beautiful as it is fragile. More and more this region is in danger from development and erosion. The shoreline we once knew is disappearing. Both Stansell and his wife are committed to seeing the local environment preserved and protected. A dried up tidal basin would negatively impact the local wildlife by destroying their home. It would also negatively impact Macky’s business by creating a stinking bog. Who wants to eat outside when an unpleasant aroma is wafting by? In the past, riprap (rock and materials used to protect against erosion), and other manmade, shoreline modifications were the common practice to protect against erosion. Yet these did little to stabilize the shoreline and in many cases destroyed the natural environment. In 2008, the Living Shoreline Protection Act required all landowners to take a different approach to shoreline preservation—the creation of Living Shorelines. Living Shorelines are a more natural protection against erosion. They protect, restore and enhance existing habitats without disrupting the ecosystem’s natural functions.

MACKY’S OWN LIVING SHORELINE

From 1999 onward, Stansell saw the nearby basin being cut off from the bay by sand buildup. He knew that if water couldn’t flow into the basin, problems would ensue. The tidal area had to be kept viable, but the basin resided on the property adjacent to Macky’s, Stansell didn’t actually own it. Armed with knowledge and desiring to preserve the area, Stansell contacted the property owners about the creation of a Living Shoreline and they agreed to let him pursue it. In 2005, Stansell invested $30,000 of his own money and hired a local landscaping company to design a stretch of marsh stretching 35 feet into open water, serving as the living shoreline. The first step was to drop more sand into the water. They then installed biodegradable logs and coconut husk mesh that would stabilize the


MACKY’S

sand. This mesh had openings which allowed sea grass and other plants to be plugged in. The first couple of years, they weren’t sure it would hold. The high tides would come in and cause the new shoreline to give way some. After a few years, the land settled, and what remains looks like a natural marsh created by mother nature. Visitors to Macky’s can take a sandy path into the marsh which leads to a beautiful lookout over the now safe basin. An informational sign stands, educating visitors about Living Shorelines, and giving a brief history of Macky’s journey to preserve this bit of land and water.

DELICIOUS NEW MENU Macky Stansell shows off the Living Shoreline he and his wife funded.

TWO HUGE PLAYGROUNDS Other area businesses have also taken measures to protect their shorelines. Not only do they make their livelihood on the shore, these locals know that it’s the right thing to do. When approached about his efforts, Stansell proudly shows visitors the marsh and the informational sign. He hopes that his actions serve as an example to others. The Ocean City community is close knit, and locals appreciate the efforts of Stansell and his wife. Though he is just one businessman, he has given new life and lasting care to the area within his reach. —Rebekah Conley

MARTIN FAMILY

A FAMILY OF FISHERMEN MARTIN FISH CO. IS A FAMILY BUSINESS INTRINSICALLY TIED TO THE FISHING INDUSTRY IN OCEAN CITY

T

he water is a way of life in Ocean City. This small strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and the Assawoman Bay is beloved by the locals who live there. Every summer, visitors flock to these shores to enjoy an oceanfront (or bayside) vacation, complete with sun, surf and some of the best seafood on the East Coast. Seafood is a treasured tradition in Ocean City, and diners enjoy the freshest fare, straight from the sea. At the forefront of the seafood industry in Ocean City is the Martin family. Martin Fish Co. has been providing Ocean City with the best fish and seafood for five generations Established in 1958, they are one of the oldest fishing companies in the area. The Martin family was a forerunner in the Ocean City fishing industry—an industry that had a strange start.

THE FISHING INDUSTRY IN OCEAN CITY

The next generation from left to right: Giana Nappi, Erika Martin, Vincent Nappi, & Ginger Nappi

App.GoOceanCity.Guide

The Ocean City fishing industry is a relatively new phenomenon. Before 1933, fishing consisted of a few small boats and some fishing camps on the south end of town. For decades, Ocean City officials had been petitioning for the creation of a manmade inlet. They knew that an inlet would help the town thrive and grow, and it would allow for the creation of a seafood industry. Over and over, this petition was denied. Then fate took a hand. A destructive hurricane swept through the town in 1933, wiping out the small fishing industry and creating the Ocean City inlet (see sidebar to learn more about the creation of the Ocean City Inlet). The hurricane, although devastating to the property and people of Ocean City, created a new way of life. The seafood industry of old consisted of a few small boats with nets. The inlet allowed larger, better outfitted crafts to cast off from the bay and head into the Atlantic, ready for long fishing voyages out at sea. At the forefront of this new venture was the Martin family.


MARTIN FAMILY

THE MARTIN FAMILY FISHING TRADITION The Martin family’s story begins in Sweden. John Patrick Martin emigrated to America in the early 1900s, bringing Sweden’s rich fishing heritage with him. At first, he began fishing off North Carolina and gradually moved up to Chincoteague, VA. But the creation of the Ocean City Inlet offered a new opportunity to John P. Martin’s son, John Woodrow Martin and his family. In 1958, John W. Martin, or as most called him, Captain Johnny, created Martin Fish Co. He passed the heritage on to his sons and daughters. Each son became a fisherman and the sons-in-law also became fishermen. What started with a few boats, grew to include a seaside dock where other fishermen could unload and sell their catch. A market was added on later as well as a small restaurant, where patrons could buy the freshest seafood. John W. Martin’s son, John David Martin, became the owner in 1975. John David’s two boys, John R. and Sam, also became fishermen, purchasing their own boats. His daughter, Erika, now manages the family market. Early each morning, she walks the docks, coffee in hand, just like her father and her grandfather used to do. The love of the sea runs deep in this family. Ginger Nappi, John W. Martin’s great-granddaughter, is now the fifth generation to be working in the family business. Ginger, her brother, Charles, and all her cousins have, at one time or another, worked in the business. They grew up on the docks, watching the boats bring in the latest catch. Summers presented opportunities to go out on the boats for days, working with the fishermen. Ginger’s young children now have the run of the place. Their routine includes eating applesauce at the restaurant and organizing the supply room. Not every member of the family stayed with the fishing business, but the nautical tradition still runs deep in them. Many went on to work in maritime professions, or they purchased boats for recreation.

THE FUTURE OF FISHING IN OCEAN CITY The fishing industry is not what it used to be. Federal and state regulations have limited the amount and type of fish that can be caught and have regulated seasonal fishing. These tight restrictions make starting out in the industry quite difficult. But Martin Fish Co. has stood the test of time. Their employees have been a part of the business for years. The dock workers, market employees and partnering fishermen are more than just coworkers, they are family. Because Martin Fish Co. is a family run business, everyone is ready and willing to lend a helping hand. Dock workers occasionally help out in the market. Ginger and Erika, who are usually found in the office, are ready to get their hands dirty if the fishermen need assistance unloading. Boats go out for a week or two at a time, and when they return their holds are full of the freshest and most delicious seafood around. The Martin family has no intention of leaving Ocean City. For five generations, they’ve called this place their home. The sea has bewitched each of them. Ginger can’t imagine living anywhere that didn’t have access to water. And watching her children play along the dock, one can see that the future of Martin Fish Co. is secure. —Rebekah Conley

THE HURRICANE AND THE INLET Visitors know that if they want to see the wild ponies of Assateague Island they need to cross a bridge. Yet before 1933, the resort town of Ocean City and the wild beauty of Assateague were one land mass. The only access to the Asswoman Bay was the southern inlet all the way in Chincoteague, Virginia. So how did the separation happen? In 1933, an epic storm ravaged the small Ocean City community. For four days, hurricane force winds, torrential rain and flooding swept across the town. Homes were completely destroyed, the famous boardwalk torn to shreds, but the most interesting effect was a feature that now defines the region. The creation of the Ocean City Inlet. The storm carved out a 50-foot wide, eight-foot deep waterway at the southern end of town. Three city streets, as well as an old railroad, were washed away, and remain underwater in the inlet to this day. The sight of water rushing through the inlet from bay to ocean became a spectacle, and crowds gathered to see the sight. Though the storm devastated Ocean City, the creation of the inlet transformed it from a sleepy resort town to a thriving oceanfront community. This inlet was the beginning of the local fishing and seafood industry.

TAKE A BREAK

HIT THE ARCADE The old midways of 1920s-era amusement parks eventually transformed into the modern-day arcade. A sense of nostalgia still exists in the boardwalk arcades that are still operating today. Way beyond pinball and skee-ball (although you’ll find those here,

too), OC arcades are constantly being updated with state-of-the art virtual reality games. Some of the most popular games today require a little more agility than thumb movement. Not only do dancing and step games draw the biggest crowds, but they also allow for a great, unexpected workout.

VISIT A MUSEUM OR GALLERY If you’re looking to brush up on your history, peruse art and more, then you’ve come to the right place. Spend the afternoon in one of Ocean City’s unique museums. Learn about the preservation of local heritage. Tour a historic home to learn about the lifestyle and upbringing during a certain period. Marvel at the works of art found in the many galleries offering new exhibits year-round. The possibilities are endless! Check event schedules for special programs and exhibits at our local museums and galleries.

Local fishing outfitters and charters are ready to set you on course for a fishing trip to brag about. If you’re into competitive fishing, be sure to check out one of the many tournaments happening in Ocean City’s waters throughout the year.

PARASAIL The best views of Ocean City can be found high above the boardwalk … 800 feet high in the air. Experienced guides guarantee a safe, smooth ride, and you might not even have to get your feet wet. Check out the OC skyline or try to spot some dolphins. The best part is that no experience is necessary for this exhilarating ride.

CRUISE THE BOARDWALK Ocean City’s world-famous boardwalk is an experience in its self! Take a morning bike ride or rent a tandem for the whole family. Indulge in two of the boardwalk’s most prized food staples—salty boardwalk fries or a cone of old-fashioned soft serve ice cream. There is tons of food, fun and history on the boards!

GO ON AN ECO-ADVENTURE Away from the bustling boardwalk, there are still pristine natural beach areas with swaying marsh grasses and plenty of wildlife. Thankfully, exploring these areas is surprisingly easy. Just head over to Assateague Island, rent a kayak or bicycle, and explore the island.

They’re the young people you’ll meet on the boardwalk and the beach, at restaurants and hotels, with smiles on their faces and unfamiliar accents you can’t quite place. They are international exchange students participating in the U.S. Department of State’s Summer Work Travel (SWT) program. “These students are future leaders in their home countries, and ambassadors of their culture while they’re here. By living and working in the U.S. for a summer, they make new friends, improve their English and take home a true understanding of what the real America is like,” explains Keri Lowry, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Private Sector Exchanges. Lowery oversees the cultural exchange, a program with over 50 years of history. Hailing from over 60 countries as diverse as Turkey, China, Russia and Ireland, these students get the chance to live and work in seasonal tourist spots all over the country while on summer break from college back home. The students stay in their host communities for about three months, then have the opportunity to travel around the U.S. for one month before heading back to their studies. “Ocean City’s international student population contributes to our community’s vibrant coastal culture in many ways” said Mayor Rick Meehan of Ocean City. “They are invaluable to our business community, providing a vast workforce that allows us to host more than 8 million visitors each year. We are fortunate to host students from many different countries and continents around the world, and I am honored they choose Ocean City as their student workforce experience.” So when you see smiling international faces or hear unfamiliar accents, ask those exchange students where they’re from, what they’re studying in college and how they’re enjoying Ocean City. You might learn something new about their country or a word in their language. You may even make a new friend in the process. —Mark Overmann, Vice President of External Affairs, InterExchange

MEET CYNTHIA PAPP FROM ROMANIA Cynthia, an economics and tourism major from Oradea, Romania, is having the time of her life serving customers and making friends at Guido’s Burritos in Ocean City -- again! She is spending her second summer participating in the Summer Work Travel program. Cynthia initially came to the U.S. to travel with friends, but returned because of the many new friends she made in Ocean City. Cynthia has loved experiencing the language and culture of the U.S., and she’s had the opportunity to travel to such places as Niagara Falls and Washington, D.C. She’s loved living and working in Ocean City and her travels, but her favorite experiences have been making friends. And she will be missed -- her co-workers said that they would probably cry when she leaves to return home to Romania.

ASSATEAGUE

National Park Service manages the Maryland herd of 90 horses, and the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company owns the Virginia herd of approximately 150 horses. Both herds have been living on the island for hundreds of years. Check Out Our Mobile App For a Video Of This Area.

ith its wind-swept sandy islands, salty marshes and lush maritime forests, Assateague Island is the perfect escape for anyone wanting to leave the crowds and find their own piece of paradise. Some venture here to spend a day kayaking or strolling the unspoiled beaches. Other popular activities include hiking, camping, swimming, surfing and surf fishing. However, there’s one attraction in particular that draws so many people to Assateague Island: the wild horses. Each summer, visitors come from near and far with the hope of catching a glimpse of the island’s famous and beloved horses as they roam free in their natural habitat. Here are the answers to some inquiries you may have about Assateague’s wild horses.. HOW DID THE PONIES GET HERE? Only legend and theory can explain how the creatures got here. One theory says that a Spanish galleon wrecked off the shores of the island, and the horses swam to shore. Another theory is that colonists in the 17th century let the animals loose on the island to avoid livestock taxes. ARE THE HORSES ALL PART OF THE SAME HERD? Two herds of horses call the island home—the Chincoteague “ponies” on the Virginia side and the Assateague horses on the Maryland side. A fence at the Virginia/Maryland State line separates them.

HOW BIG ARE THEIR HERDS? The horses have divided themselves into bands of 2–12 animals, and each band occupies a home range. WHAT DO THE HORSES EAT? Marsh, dune and various grasses, leaves and plants supply the bulk of their food. WHERE DO THE HORSES GO
DURING BAD WEATHER? During the cold winter months, the horses develop thick fur coats to keep them warm. If there’s a storm, the horses seek shelter in wooded areas. WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO SPOT WILD HORSES? The horses roam in the marshes, along the beach and often in the campgrounds, parking areas and roads. In the Maryland district, horses can be seen from your car as you’re driving, or you may want to rent a kayak for a closer view. There are also pony-viewing tours available in the Virginia district, where guests experience a guided tour of the island and get a close-up view of the horses. HOW IS THE POPULATION OF PONIES CONTROLLED? In Maryland, some female horses undergo a contraceptive vaccine administered through a dart gun, reducing high pregnancy rates with no harmful side effects. In Virginia, the horses are rounded up as part of the Annual Pony Swim in Chincoteague. They swim across the Assateague Channel where an auction takes place to reduce their numbers on Assateague. After many foals are sold, the remaining herd swims back to Assateague a couple days later. IS IT OK TO TRY TO PET ONE OF THE HORSES? While these quiet creatures look tame, they are still wild animals and should never be pet or fed. For your own protection and the protection of the horses, keep a safe distance. The wild horses are unpredictable wild animals, and National Park Service recommends keeping a “bus length” away. WHERE CAN I FIND MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ASSATEAGUE ISLAND AND THE HORSES? On your way to your island escape, visit the Assateague Island Visitor Center on the southern side of Route 611 before the Verrazano Bridge park entrance. Find information about the park, programs and recreational activities, plus exhibits on beachcombing, nature films, a marine aquarium and a touch tank. For more information about Assateague Island, its horses and wildlife plus rules on camping within the parks, visit NPS. gov/asis or call 410-641-1441. —Angela Blue To read the full article, visit GoOceanCity.Guide

perspiring or swimming. The sun is most damaging between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Use a sunblock with a higher protection factor on the areas that are more exposed: the tip of the nose, ears, collarbone, top of the feet and shoulders. On your lips, use only those products designed for that area. Keep all sunblock and sun medications away from the eyes. Yes. Some examples are Tetracycline, diuretics and major tranquilizers, such as Thorazine or Stelazine. These have the potential to cause a bad burn from an amount of sun that would not ordinarily be harmful.

scrubbing, no shaving. Use a soft towel to pat the skin dry. Try a sunburn remedy or first-aid spray, one with lidocaine or benzocaine for quick pain relief. Use a light moisturizer and a dusting of powder, which eases chafing. In general, try to stay out of the sun. If the sunburn is severe, if you blister, or if you feel faint or nauseous, see a doctor immediately.

Can medications add to sun sensitivity?

Yes. There is evidence that sunblock helps prevent skin cancer and sunburn, and retards the aging effects of the sun. Use a sunblock with the highest number, preferably 15 or greater, if you are more likely to burn. Sunblocks should be applied at least once an hour while you’re in the sun and more often if you are

RECOMMENDED PRECAUTIONS YOUR CHILDREN AND THE SUN: Children under one year of age should be kept out of the sun. Use lightweight, light-colored clothing, and always cover his head with a hat. Use a sunscreen with a protection factor of 15 for best results. Apply liberally and often. Don’t use a sunblock with a protection factor of more than 4 on children under 6 months of age. There is a possibility that the skin may absorb the chemical, and the child’s system may not eliminate it. JELLYFISH: While jellyfish look beautiful and harmless, their tentacles are an entirely different situation. The tentacles are long, spindly appendages that hang from the underside of the jellyfish. When they come in contact with the skin, the result is a red welt and severe pain. Gently wash the area with a mild soap and water, then apply liberal amounts of meat tenderizer (MSG, Accent, etc.) to the still-wet area. Benadryl will help lessen the reaction. If the reaction worsens, see a physician. KIDS’ CORNER Since 80 percent of skin damage occurs in the first 20 years of life, it’s up to the parents to jumpstart their children on a lifetime of protective skin care. —Dr. Victor Gong 75th St. Medical Center

the Sand Sculptures

of Randy Hofman

Bringing a message of peace and love through sand art

A

highlight of an Ocean City vacation is a stroll down the boardwalk. There is so much to do and see—carnival rides, delicious boardwalk treats, colorful shops. The noise and activity may distract you from a quieter Ocean City attraction. Nestled in the sand off the boardwalk around 2nd Street are three sand sculptures. These are the work of one man, Randy Hofman. Since 1975, Randy has been using his artistry to give Ocean City residents and visitors a message of hope and love. Inspired by his faith, he chooses Biblical themes, stories and motifs to inspire and encourage passersby. Randy’s story begins as a young visitor to Ocean City. Every summer his family would vacation in town. At the time, there was another man who did religiously themed sand sculptures. Randy was a burgeoning artist, trained mostly in oil painting, but this was the first time he’d seen sand art. He was inspired by the man’s artistry and his faith. In 1974, Hofman came to Ocean City to be a painter, but the sculptor took Randy under his wing and trained him in sand art. In 1982, Randy’s Ocean City mentor moved to Florida to do sand sculptures there, leaving a void that needed filling. Hofman decided to continue the sand sculpture tradition. When he started, he would create new sand art every night. The residents of Ocean City would come by every morning, eager to see the new design. But by noon, the elements wore away the beautiful sculptures. The tiring process of creating new sand art every night continued for years. Then in the 1990s, sand artists from around the country came to Ocean City for the world’s largest sand sculpture competition. A group of artists from California enlisted Randy’s help to aid them with converting their 50-foot sand pile into an elaborate sculpture. Randy noticed that these sculptors used a watery adhesive to solidify their sculptures so it would last longer. This revolutionized his process. No longer would he have to work late into the night creating a new sculpture. Now, every few weeks, Randy Hofman designs three new sculptures. His current location on 2nd Street is by the Plim Plaza, a Harrison Group hotel. They aid him by providing electricity, so day or night his sculptures can be seen. Randy Hofman loves bringing joy and love to Ocean City. He feels blessed this his job allows him to be in the sunshine, breathing the sea air and enjoying the beauty of this special place. Randy, an ordained minister, wants these sculptures to fill people with hope. His favorite memory is seeing a mother kneel by her child, explaining what each of his sculptures meant.

hile it’s just eight miles away from the sandy beaches of Ocean City and Assateague Island, the town of Berlin is miles away from ordinary. The historic town is picture perfect, with red brick buildings, stone churches and period homes framed graciously by magnolias, sycamore trees and tulip poplars. The town is so cool, in fact, that Berlin was named “Coolest Small Town in America” by Budget Travel Magazine in 2014. A stroll down Main Street offers unique shopping in art galleries, antique stores, specialty gift shops and lots of dining options. Berlin is known for their fun and sometimes quirky events like the annual Bathtub Races every July and the New Year’s Eve Ball Drop! The best way to appreciate Berlin is to meander around the town’s scenic streets. You’ll notice many old buildings—in fact, there are numerous structures in the town that are noted in the National Register of Historic Places, not to mention the whole downtown itself. Nearly two centuries of architectural heritage are represented, dating from the Federal, Victorian and 20th Century periods. Since the 1980s, Berlin has undergone considerable revitalization of its historic downtown commercial district, and it shows. A memorable way to discover downtown is by horse and carriage with daily rides spring through fall. Today’s downtown Berlin has been designated as an “Arts and Entertainment District” due to its cultural growth and fostering of artistic activity. Berlin is also home to the Worcester County Arts Council, which maintains an art gallery filled with works by local artists.

Of course, you may enjoy your visit to Berlin so much that you’ll want to stay the night. And with historic B&Bs like the famed Atlantic Hotel, the newly opened Waystead Inn or the charming Holland House B&B, your night’s stay is sure to be as enjoyable as the day.

BERLIN, A REAL LIFE MOVIE SET

Berlin is so enchanting that it has been the location for some major motion pictures. In 1998, Paramount’s Runaway Bride was shot in Berlin, which became the fictional town of Hale, Maryland for the film. Richard Gere and Julia Roberts starred in the movie, which featured several local shops downtown and many residents as extras. In 2001, Berlin transformed itself into the set for the film Tuck Everlasting, starring Sissy Spacek, Ben Kingsley and William Hurt. The downtown was transported back in time to the turn-of-the-century, complete with dirt roads, horses, carriages and period costumes. Today, you can take the walking tour of the Runaway Bride set locations.

TAYLOR HOUSE MUSEUM

Located in Berlin’s historic downtown, the Calvin B. Taylor House Museum is a carefully restored early 19th-century house featuring period furnishings and local history exhibits. Current displays include Race of the Century: War Admiral vs. Seabiscuit and Images of the Past: Berlin 1900–1950. Enjoy free evening concerts on the lawn once a month from June to September. The museum is open Memorial Day weekend through the end of October, Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 1–4 p.m. For more information, call 410-641-1019 or visit TaylorHouseMuseum.org.

A living museum, a charming downtown and river adventures make these coastal communities worth discovering! America’s best small towns. And lately, there’s enough going on to put it right in the running again. With its classic brick-fronted storefronts, Pocomoke’s downtown harkens back to small-town America with a smattering of shops, restaurants and museums. Originally settled in the 1600s, the town is on the National Register of Historic Places. Take a tour of the stately Costen House and the Sturgis One Room School Museum. Another downtown jewel is the Mar-Va Theater, an Art Deco beauty from 1927 that was renovated and reopened in 2008. The Mar-Va offers movies, theatrical productions, concerts and more.

The Delmarva Discovery Center and Museum Store occupy a prime spot just a few feet away from the Pocomoke River and the town’s picture-perfect drawbridge. Stow your car here and spend the day exploring Pocomoke by foot. Inside the Discovery Center, you’re far more than a spectator. Go ahead and touch, listen, experiment and explore. It’s a hands-on experience that offers a fun and fascinating look at the Pocomoke River, its history, ecology and role in the lives of folks in this region for the past 300 years. It’s truly an adventure in learning. Come meet Mac and Tuck, our two North American River Otters, as they play in their 6,000-gallon aquarium. Or dig into the new touch pool and see what critters are living there. For events and programs, visit www.delmarvadiscoverycenter.org. Golfers can head to Winter Quarters Municipal Golf Course, a nine-hole, par 35 course in Pocomoke City. Spend the night in the historic River Gem BnB built in 1860, included on the National Register of Historic Places.

r a e w m i Sw TRENDS OF 2017

A

s you plan your beach vacation, you may be faced with the yearly dilemma that confronts all beach-goers—what swimsuit should I wear? The looks this year are exciting, flattering and diverse enough to fit any taste. Prints and patterns are bold and beautiful, and amazing detailing was not ignored. To stay on point, here is your guide to what’s trending in 2017. The High-Neck silhouette was a key style last season and continues to be on top. The versatility of this trend is endless and can easily transition from beach to bar by adding a pair of shorts or lightweight beach pants. From bikinis to crop tops to one pieces, you can find all different kinds of exciting designs, strappy accents, mesh overlay and crochet detailing on your high-neck swimsuit. So Strappy! Sexy strappy detail is all the rage this summer. Intricate back detail straps, multi side strap bottoms and strapped plunging swimwear is everywhere. It seems that this year’s theme is the more straps the better! The Cold Shoulder and Off the Shoulder look has made its transition from clothing to swim. These bare shouldered tops are graceful and feminine. You may not be playing volleyball or swimming laps in these tops but you are sure to turn some heads with this flirty swimsuit. Add a One Piece to your swimwear drawer. These suits are anything but dull with a multitude of straps or cutouts, high-legs, plunging necklines and cheeky backsides. You can finally feel and look sexy in a one piece. If you’re curious what colors and prints are trending, be on the lookout for suits in a beautiful bridal white. Rich magenta and plum tones, flesh colors, nudes and soft hues will also be dotting the oceanfront this year. As for patterns, the tropical theme continues with bold floral prints. And don’t be afraid to buy a suit with fun and interesting geometric patterns. Summer of 2017 features suits that will not only make you feel good, you’ll also feel fun and enticing. In your new swimsuit, you’ll hit the beach feeling as great as you look! —Editorial contribution by Sea Quest Fashions

n the beginning of the fishing industry, men would drag boats through the surf and row through the breakers to harvest the abundant supply of fish in the Atlantic. The end of the day brought the boats back to the shore and teams of horses would assist in dragging boats full of fish back up the beach. The catch would then go to the ice house located between Worcester and Wicomico Streets. Then the fish would leave by train over Sinepuxent Bay to markets in Baltimore and Philadelphia. That all changed in 1933. The hurricane of 1933 ripped an inlet between Assateague Island and Ocean City. Now it was possible for motorized or sailing vessels to access the sea and take safe harbor. The commercial fleet was able to evolve with larger vessels and docks to unload. A new fishery flourished, that would be the offshore fishing industry. In 1939, after 171 white marlin were boated in a single day at the “Jack Spot,” Ocean City became known as the “White Marlin Capital of the World.” Marlin fishing may get the most publicity but there are many other species pursued from the docks of Ocean City. Near shore wreck fishing is a staple of the industry in Ocean City. Anglers on “head boats” venture out daily to catch tuotog, seabass, flounder and trigger fish. These boats are so named because they charge “per head.”

FISHING

Continued from page 73

You can see the Ocean Princess, the “Morningstar” or the “Judith M” motoring out of the inlet every morning. If the ocean isn’t your cup of tea, many opportunities exist for fishing from land or small boats in our coastal bays. The bays and inlet offer rockfish, flounder, blue and toutog. Croaker fishing gets hot in late July and August while red drum and rockfish round out the year. You can fish from the inlet jetty, the Ocean City Bridge, or any of the privately owned fishing piers. Public fishing is allowed on the bulkhead from 2nd to 4th Street. Anywhere you fish you’ll need a Maryland fishing license. Fishing in Ocean City offers enjoyment to young and old, boy or girl—it is truly a family activity. So, go down to the local marina and “take a kid fishing.” —Shawn Harman, Bahia Marina See Fishing Tournament Schedule on Page 78

WAVE RUNNERS & JET SKIS

WATER

From the Assawoman Bay to the Atlantic Ocean, Ocean City’s waterways are perfect for dozens of water activities. Whether you want to cool off from a hot day in the sun or rev up for some excitement you’re sure to find an activity the whole family will enjoy.

Speed across Isle of Wight Bay and over rippling waves with a friend along for the ride. Area rental companies make sure this is a fun and safe experience. Outfitters make sure you are properly trained before driving the craft, and most companies give you a designated riding area to explore. Remember, keep on the lookout for others sharing Ocean City’s waterways with you—including the wildlife!

PARASAILING

Soar above the Atlantic and see the best views of Ocean City and Assateague Island from the air. One of the most popular beach

activities, parasailing, can actually be done without even getting your feet wet. Many companies ask if you’d prefer to take off and land from the boat or the water. Watch dolphins and other wildlife and take in beautiful views of the inland bays and city landscape.

RENT A BOAT Pontoons, jet boats, fishing boats, cruisers, skiffs—the possibilities are endless. Just choose your craft and set out on your own voyage in the surrounding waters. Pontoons and deck boats are great for families—enjoy an afternoon cruising, swimming, snacking and tanning in Assawoman Bay and the many inlets. Or if you’re craving some speed, rent a speedboat or cruiser. Experienced anglers can skip the charter and rent their own skiff for a solo, deep sea fishing adventure.

SURFING

It’s a passion shared by millions around the world—the coveted feeling of riding a wave. The best way to get a good start surfing is by taking a lesson or two for the basics. Ocean City surf schools will teach you how to get from lying down on your board to standing up, how to pick the perfect wave and how to fall without hurting yourself. There are designated surfing beaches, but if you come when the lifeguards are off duty, every beach is a surfing beach.

Great for exploring Ocean City and Assateague Island’s remote coastal areas, kayaking gives people an up-close view of some of our country’s last preserved natural beaches. Take a kayak tour and allow a guide lead you through unspoiled areas while explaining the ecosystem and wildlife around you.

CRUISES

From nature excursions to high-speed cruises, there is a wide variety of public cruises to choose from in Ocean City.

Kids and families will love the pirate-themed cruises for quality entertainment on the water, while couples may enjoy a sunset cruise aboard a sailboat or yacht. There are also excursions for dolphin watching, fishing, bird watching and nature viewing.

STAND-UP PADDLEBOARDING

The bays of Ocean City make the perfect location to try standup paddleboarding. When you want to get more of a workout in, SUP is the ultimate sport to take to the water!

For an exciting twist on SUP, try nighttime paddleboarding with the beautiful Ocean City skyline lit up in the background.

LOW IMPACT TOURISM THAT HAS A HIGH IMPACT ON YOUR VACATION

V

acation is the one time you don’t want to feel guilty. Turn off the Fitbit. Don’t think about the calories. But what if doing something good for yourself, and the area your visiting, is actually fun? Our narrow strip of land surrounded by water abounds with low-impact tourism (LIT) opportunities. LIT is a lot like the “buy local” movement with an added environmental bonus—not putting anything into our eco-system or taking anything from it. That might sound limiting, but not here! Kayaking, paddle boarding, surfing, sailing, kiteboarding, biking, hiking—more than enough activities to fill any vacation. Beginner kayakers and paddleboarders appreciate the shallow, warm waters of our inland bays. Take a lesson from a professional and then explore our shorelines and salt marshes. Or join a guided tour to experience places you might not find on your own and learn how the wildlife, marine life and habitat are all interconnected and make up our incredibly precious ecosystem. Afternoon sea breezes make our area perfect for sailing, kiteboarding and windsurfing. Biking is easy on our flat terrain and the Breakwater Junction Trail is a true gem that shouldn’t be missed. Hike the paths of Cape Henlopen to the north and Assateague Island to the south. And, of course, the Atlantic Ocean beckons the kid in us all to learn to surf or skimboard. Vacation time and dollars are both, unfortunately, finite. By choosing to spend yours on LIT experiences, you not only demonstrate your appreciation for our environment and help make our community stronger, you’ll feel healthier and make invaluable memories. All guilt free! Jenifer Adams-Mitchell | Owner, Coastal Kayak 2017/2018 | Ocean City Visitors Guide | 81

With its old-fashioned feel, Trimper’s has all the classic amusement rides like the big and small merry-go-rounds, a Ferris wheel, bumper cars, roller coasters and a tilt-a-whirl just to name a few.

GREAT GOLF

cean City was once known as a beach destination, with a golf course or two on the side. Today, some say it’s the opposite—a golf destination, with a beach or two on the side. Whatever you call it, Ocean City is one of the fastest growing golfing destinations on the East Coast, and it’s the place to go for year-round championship golf in a region full of exciting attractions and natural beauty. The scenic area surrounding Ocean City is just the starting point for great golf. Legendary players and course designers like Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones, Arthur Hills and Pete and P.B. Dye all lent their expertise to more than 17 championship courses in the area. They’ve created magnificent courses with lush fairways surrounded by marshes, forests and inland waters. Some offer stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, its bays and rivers. If it’s a visually striking scene a golfer is looking for, they’ll certainly find it here in Ocean City. Players can experience a variety of sand dunes and native wetland grasses that complement the natural landscape of the oceanfront. The unique terrain is not only visually stimulating but also provides rare challenges that test a golfer’s ability. A wide range of difficulties ensures every golfer—from casual to pro— can find their ideal course. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon game, or challenge distinctive fairways, pot bunkers and sand dunes and the ever-present East Coast winds. Ocean City is also the best place to accommodate a range of prices for every golfer. The area continues to be a destination where the average golfer can plan an outing without having to pay outrageous greens fees. Plus the host of courses available provides the flexibility to accommodate every golfer’s spending point from the penny-wise putter to the copious competitor. For some practice before you embark on the first 18 holes, hit one of the many driving ranges or practice facilities in the area. Lessons and several clinics are offered as well, for first-time golfers all the way up to experts. Many of the area’s golf schools offer exclusive packages that may include one-onone instruction, professional analysis of your swing, unlimited use of practice areas, course privileges and cart use as well as a tasty and energizing lunch every day. Ocean City’s abundantly stocked pro shops will provide everything you need to be on your best game. Choose from a variety of snacks, extra equipment from your favorite brands and the most charming apparel that guarantees not only the most perfected golfer on the course—but the best dressed as well. With some of the greatest selections of luxury or economy accommodations around, you’ll get a good night’s sleep and be energized for a brand new game in the morning. Many hotels even offer complete golfing packages, allowing you the privilege of trying out several different ranges of courses at

various locations rather than playing the same course over and over. Plus many packages may include free club cleaning and storage, breakfast, lunch and beverage vouchers, complimentary golf towels, tees, ball markers and guaranteed preferred advanced tee times. With a relatively mild winter, Ocean City Golf is a year-round luxury. However, as the summer heats up, so do the golf courses. Reserved tee times are an absolute must. In the past 20 years, Ocean City Golfing has expanded so much, the whole nation is taking notice. In fact, Golf Digest and Golf Magazine have added several area courses to its lists of the Best Places to Play and Best New Courses. You will also find “Top 100 Nationally Ranked Courses” that you can play in the country, along with courses that are Rated Best in State in the Maryland and Delaware Resort. Another reason Ocean City is the top vacation destination is because it offers plenty of amenities for the golfer and plenty of fun activities the whole family can enjoy. Some of the area’s top hotels provide heated pools, amusements within the hotel, deluxe fitness centers, game rooms and of course the endless hours of enjoyment supplied by the various beaches. You can relax knowing that as you’re perfecting your backstroke on the green, your family is backstroking their way through a relaxing afternoon at the pool or having a perfect day at the beach. When you meet up for a special dinner, you can share fascinating stories of the fun you’ve all had during the day. When you start planning your golf vacation, it can be overwhelming trying to research each club and the courses and amenities they offer along with figuring out the locations and booking overnight accommodations for your trip. Luckily, there’s an exclusive service with you in mind. Ocean City Golf Getaway provides golfers with one-stop hassle-free shopping for golf vacations. They include a variety of inclusive services-oriented packages with hotels, golf package companies, condominiums, restaurants, golf schools, courses and entertainment.

Frontier Town The Wild West Show at Frontier Town Can Truly Be Called a Family Affair

W

ild West shows have a long-standing tradition in this nation heralding back to Buffalo Bill Cody and Will Rogers. Yet what was once a common form of entertainment has been all but lost in this modern age. At Ocean City’s Frontier Town, this American tradition is not forgotten. Frontier Town is an amusement park like no other. Where else could you find a waterpark, an adventure park, mini golf and camping in one location? However, Frontier Town is firmly rooted in the Wild West shows of old. In 1959, Frontier Town began as a place where Ocean City residents and visitors could see a genuine Wild West show complete with trick riders, whip acts and traditional Indian dances. Time has brought some exciting changes to Frontier Town—water attractions, campground cabins, an arcade and more. However, it’s the chance to experience l880s life at the Wild West show that is the highlight of a visit to Frontier Town. The Wild West Show is a heritage that has been passed down from fathers to their children. Two of the park’s most popular shows feature two performers who have kept the tradition of the Wild West Show alive in their families—Shane Karson and John “Laughing Wolf” Moore. Shane manages the Wild West Show, but he is also a trick rider and expert with the bull whip. These skills were learned from his parents right there in Frontier Town when the park opened. His mother was a trick rider and his father did a bull whip act. There are pictures of a young Shane

Menus and easy to navigate instructions. holding targets for his dad back in the 1960s. Shane has worked as a wrangler and a rodeo rider all over the nation, but in 2010 he returned to his roots. His 8-year-old son, Clay, is now learning the family business—riding ponies while spinning guns. If you have attended the Native American show at Frontier Town in the last 40 years, chances are you have seen John “Laughing Wolf” Moore performing traditional dances. His father, Red Bird, was among the first natives to perform at Frontier Town. Many of Red Bird’s fellow performers left because they felt that the Wild West show encouraged negative stereotypes of Native Americans. However, Red Bird wanted to dispel these false ideas. This is a calling that Laughing Wolf and his sister, Aimee “Screaming Eagle” Adams, have continued. Visiting the Indian show at Frontier Town includes beautiful, traditional costumes and exciting dances, but it’s also a chance for the Moores to educate audiences about their culture. “I want them to realize that we’re just like them,” says Laughing Wolf. “We are just like anyone else who holds their culture and practices.” Both Karson and Moore spent their childhoods at this amazing theme park, and it’s the audiences that keep them at Frontier Town year after year. Guests may come thinking they’ll see a ho-hum reenactment, but they walk away smiling and laughing after seeing exciting performances. “We get to show them a little bit of history,” says Karson, “where this country came from.” It’s the combination of educating guests and thrilling them that makes the Wild West Show at Frontier Town a must-do while in Ocean City.

T

he art of food has been an important tradition in Maryland’s kitchens for generations, stemming from family dinners centered on freshly caught seafood and recently harvested veggies. Now, cuisine is evolving into culinary masterpieces, which still feature local fare as the main attraction. Local chefs understand that your Ocean City vacation is the one time of year that you can get away without having a care in the world. Because of this, they want to make food and your dining experience memorable. The main attraction that draws folks from all around to Maryland’s shores is the fresh bounty of seafood. Blue crab, the pride of Maryland and sought after menu item by visitors and locals alike, is typically available from April through December. The season for the soft shell variety ends a few months earlier, in October. That means during the summer months, you’ll find crab on almost every menu in Ocean City and in an infinite array of presentations. The classic style of cooking crabs, which gives them their signature flavor, is to steam them in large pots with water, vinegar and Old Bay seasoning. Actually, just briefly mentioning Old Bay seasoning wouldn’t give the Ocean City crab preparation enough credit. If you are a local or frequent visitor, you know that when crabs are served to you at a local restaurant, they are completely covered

with layers and layers of Old Bay seasoning. While your mouth may be watering from just imagining this succulent meal, others prefer their crab prepared with less Old Bay and with something more nontraditional. The good news is many Ocean City’s restaurants will substitute or add a variety of ingredients to give their crabs a unique flavor. Striped bass, or rockfish, is another Maryland legend. Fishing for striped bass occurs on a year-round basis in Ocean City, whether you are casting a line around

bridges, off a fishing pier or jetty, on beaches, tide rips and even shallow water areas. Over the years, the sizes of striped bass caught around Ocean City have been from school-sized fish to trophy-class. As the official state fish, striped bass is a deliciously moist fish that area restaurants can cook up in a multitude of ways. The mild flavor is usually complemented by added spices, herbs or sauces and grilled, blackened or broiled. While you’ll probably find striped bass on the menu all year, the best season for the popular fish is during the fall and winter months, when they migrate south from New England. Tautog is often plentiful in the areas surrounding Ocean City, and because of its lean, firm and tasty meat, it is a popular menu item and choice for restaurants’ “Catch of the Day.” Find the fish served baked, basted with butter and covered in crumbs or grilled and rubbed with spices. The main fishing season for tautog is May through September, but anglers still manage to reel them in year-round. Another popular fish in Ocean City is flounder, which is found in the bay during the summer (June through September) and in the ocean year-round. Flaky and delicate, flounder is a mild fish that can be prepared in a myriad of ways, but for the most part, you’ll find this tasty fish pan-fried to perfection. When you want to venture from the pan-fried style, be sure to try stuffed flounder! During the summer, you’ll find many other fish on the menu or board of specials, including Spanish mackerel and bluefish. Of course, Ocean City menus also feature seafood favorites like shrimp, oysters, clams, lobster and salmon. Another way to discover the fresh seafood of Ocean City is by visiting a local seafood market. Seafood markets offer some of the freshest seafood around, such as live crab, live lobster, live Blue crab, live Manila clams, freshwater shrimp, yellow hamachi and plenty of fresh fish and seafood that is already prepared for you. One of the great things about the fresh catches in Ocean City is where they are served. Restaurants, bars and grills, pubs and waterfront eateries line the streets and are home to some of the most original dining settings on the East Coast. Indoor seating is always available, but why not enjoy a fresh seafood meal overlooking the bay or Atlantic Ocean? There are a wide variety of restaurants located right on the water, whether it be on an outside party deck with live bands playing throughout the summer, rooftop dining area or even a relaxing patio perfect 94 |

for enjoying a bite to eat under an umbrella. Some restaurants even allow you to drive your boat right up to your table while others offer a scenic cruise of the Ocean City waterways after your delectable dinner! There’s just no better way to travel for a fresh seafood meal than by boat. If you are a fan of Happy Hour, then you are in luck! Ocean City offers great deals on delicious drinks, but where you do the sipping and nibbling is the best part. Have a cold one on a hanging swing, enjoy the sand between your toes at a picnic table on a man-created beach, or simply sit at an outside bar with an appetizer and watch the sunset. There are also restaurants with rooftop dining where you can enjoy a delicious meal paired with your favorite drink and, of course, witness a 360-degree view of Ocean City from above. With all the unique indoor and relaxing outdoor dining areas, there’s live entertainment to accompany many restaurants. Throughout the year, you will find that most restaurants and bars in the area have a variety of live music playing throughout the year to keep your toes tappin’ all evening long. Some even stay later than the sunset giving you the chance to enjoy an entire night out with family and friends after a delicious meal. While there are a plethora of outdoor Caribbean-style restaurants and bars in the area, there are also several high-end eateries that are always up to par. Splurge on a lovely dinner and cold beverage at one of the more upscale restaurants in the area offering an incredible menu and an unforgettable dining experience.

portion of our state and proves to be darn good eatin’. We also find meals swimming in our bays—flounder and perch are the predominate contributors to area menus. Regionally speaking, our mid-Atlantic coast and Chesapeake Bay area are home to an abundant variety of crabs and shellfish as well. We all know that Maryland blue crabs provide some of the tastiest crabmeat and soft crabs around—thanks to the “mustard” these critters accumulate in the colder off season. But most of our guests are not aware that our mid-Atlantic coastline is also home to plenty of saltwater lobsters, red crabs, clams and oysters. It’s true—no need to travel to New England for a good lobster dinner. We’ve got lobster boats that dock right in our harbor. Additionally, Maryland has become quite known for aquaculture. The state offers tasty oysters that are not only good for eating, but they also work miracles to help filter our coastal bays and watersheds throughout the state. Our state is proud to be the home to the Oyster Recovery Program as well as one of its partners, the Horn Point Oyster Hatchery, which cultivates young oysters for aquaculture and restoration projects. The hatchery works with its partners to distribute oysters for commercial aquaculture and to build up oyster reefs in the bay.

Ocean City, specifically, has developed a culinary scene birthed from the melting pot of individuals who have become residents here over time. While a few families own claims as true-blue locals—born and raised on the island— many have found their way through different paths and now call this area home.


CUISINE

As our community has developed, we’ve attracted a residential base of creative, passionate and hardworking individuals who have helped to further develop our local economy. One that has greatly contributed to the evolution of our culinary scene is the local agriculture market. Over the years, an impressive list of local farms have been built, grown and maintained. They proudly sell their crops to local and regional restaurants as well as at local farmers markets all season long. Through the use of greenhouses and high tunnels, some of our farmers have been working to establish extended seasons and even year-round growing, which further adds to the evolution of local sourcing in dining around our area. Chesterfield Heirlooms (Pittsville, Md.), Quindocqua Farms (Marion Station, Md.), Baywater Greens (Salisbury, Md.) The Good Farm (Berlin, Md.) and Terrapin Farms (Berlin, Md.) are just a few of the many produce growers along the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Our local agriculture starts with produce, but it certainly doesn’t stop there. Area restaurateurs are finding more local and regional sources for naturally farmed ingredients, such as proteins. Roseda Farms in Monkton, Md. farms all-natural beef, and Hurlock, Md. has been home to a bison farm for many years. We are in great supply of all-natural, free-range eggs as more chicken farmers who follow sustainable practices set up shop along our coast. Willow Brook Farm (Quantico, Md.) is one such farm that has taken the lead in egg farming. As our small community continues to develop our own version of hunting and gathering, with respect to dining, we’ve seen restaurants embrace local sources. Smaller restaurants can use local sources easier since the demand is lower. However, even the larger restaurants in our town have stepped into the arena to focus on representing local sources whenever possible. The culture of our community is to support each other, to build together and to maintain the camaraderie of the close-knit fishing community in which we sprouted. Our coastal town has successfully initiated its own path of culinary development in the wake of a booming tourism industry. We invite you to enjoy the diversity, embrace the honesty and feel our pride as you dine your way through our Eastern Shore beach town. —Editorial by Jody Kelly Wright The Shark on the Harbor, OcShark.com Culture/Authentic Eatery, CultureRestaurant.com

Ocean City Locals Tend the Shops Then Take the Stage

JOHN HOFMAN OF JOHNNY’S PIZZA & PUB WHO: John Hofman, originally from Montgomery County, MD and an Ocean City local since 1979. DAY JOB: Owner of Johnny’s Pizza & Pub which opened in 2010. John describes his place as “a true pizza pub. We have ice cold, revolving craft and domestic beers and delicious pizza.” He loves Johnny’s because “a good quality product and a fair deal makes happy customers and keeps them coming back.” He not only runs this popular restaurant with his lovely wife, they’re also preparing to open a new location in Ocean Pines called JOHNNY’S PIZZA DOUGH Factory. MUSICIAN LIFE: “My mother was a piano player and a piano tuner. Growing up with six brothers and two sisters and always having musical instruments around the house, we developed a love for music.” One brother learned to play banjo and the other became a concert pianist, touring all over the world. Since he was 19, John has had a guitar. Although he never had formal training, he would play around with it and ask people to show him things. John’s inspirations are guitar greats like Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Jimmy Page. MUSICAL PURSUITS: Music plays a huge role at Johnny’s Pizza & Pub. During the summer season, guests will be able to hear live music 3-4 nights a week. But it’s Wednesday nights that guests should look forward to. That’s when favorite Ocean City band Randy Lee Ashcroft and the Salt Walter Cowboys appears at Johnny’s. John will take out one of the many guitars he has laying around and take to the stage with the band for a jam session. These jam sessions are opened to any local artist, no matter what they play. “It’s amazing the amount of talented, local musicians that show up and play at our Jam on Wednesday nights,” says John. “We have pizza and a beer and we jam out.” THE BALANCE: “I keep my passion for music by buying new guitars. I have a lot of guitars and I like playing them. It’s very relaxing to go home and play some mellow chords.” Music and supporting local musicians is a passion that John has infused into his very popular pizza pub. —Rebekah Conley
