Aah, the Boardwalk… So many memories have been created on Ocean City’s Boardwalk. One of the best parts of visiting Ocean City is taking a stroll with family and friends and checking out all the unique shops, the rides and arcades, and of course indulging in yummy beach foods! So on your next stroll, be sure to check out these boardwalk spots that many have grown to love. P.S. Start from the Kite Loft and walk south towards the Inlet and you’ll see all the spots listed in order.
The Kite Loft on 5th St.
“Where Fun Begins.” They’re not lying! This place is so cool to look around in. Fun stuff everywhere you turn. Kids AND adults will love it.

The Dough Roller on 3rd St.
There are so many great pizza places to chose from and The Dough Roller is one of them! There will sometimes be a line, but I promise it’s totally worth the wait! Eat inside or take your pizza to go, it’ll be gone in less than 2 minutes anyway.

Ocean Gallery on 2nd St.
Talk about eclectic! There’s so much to see here, you might not even know where to start. With two stories of paintings, pictures, and posters, the Ocean Gallery is definitely a boardwalk classic!
Fun Fact or Myth? It is said that once upon a summer in Ocean City, the founder, Mr. Joseph KroArt could only afford to live in a fly-infested basement. And that when money was running real low, he would actually eat the flies! Do you think he actually ventured into the fly cuisine? Who’s to know except KroArt himself!

Quiet Storm Surf Shop on North Division St.
A Facebooker recently referred to it as “Pure Awesome Sauce.” Voted Boardwalk’s Best Shop 2014, they offer swim and skate apparel, swimwear, and much more. And guess what? If you’re not from around here, they even ship their merchandise to you!

Fisher’s Popcorn on Talbot St.
Hmmm… that sweet caramel popcorn. If you like popcorn, then this should be a must for you. Although most famously known for their caramel popcorn, they offer a wide variety of other flavors and sell salt-water taffy too!

Thrasher’s on Wicomico St.
No deviation from Mr. Hasting’s original recipe since 1929! See for yourself why it’s the first stop for many Ocean City visitors.
