Ocean City, Boardwalk Preparing For Summer - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Ocean City, Boardwalk Preparing For Summer

Posted: Updated:
OCEAN CITY, MARYLAND - OCEAN CITY, Md. - Monday's warmer weather brought the crowds out along the Ocean City boardwalk, as the town and shop owners got ready for the summer season.

With just six weeks until Memorial Day, anticipation was running high.  

"Spring break was good," said A.J. Biri of Ocean Waves. "It was a good turn out and we're hoping to see the same thing this summer."

That hope in this beach town comes after last year's rainy and cold start to spring, and this year's winter that had many feeling like it would never go away.

"I feel like winters are getting longer and I don't like it," said Miranda from Bowie.

"It was... it was rough," Added Kate Cook with a sigh. "You know, a lot of days we stayed inside."

But the weather is finally breaking and folks like Kelly Benson are coming out.

"It's really a nice day to be at the beach in general," Benson said.

And that search for summer sun could mean a business boom this year.

"You never know," Biri said. "It's too early to tell, but hopefully we have a good season."

47 ABC checked with some hotels in the area, and one says they haven't seen a specific increase because of the harsh winter, but the reservations are starting to roll in.  And as crews finish up construction and shops prep snacks and souvenirs, Ocean City will be ready to handle another wave of sun seekers.
