I just got home from my first visit to Ocean City. I booked the trip not realizing it was crusin weekend and didn't know the impact of that. The good part was that we saw a show at the convention center. The group Under the Streetlamp put on a great show and the venue was great.
I wasn't expecting the chaos and lunacy driving around town from this event. Speeding cars in bumper to bumper traffic, cars doing burnouts, some areas had more rubber on the road than asphalt. To me it ruined what could have been a great weekend. The boardwalk parade of cars was great as I'm sure were the two event locations, the convention center and inlet parking lot. I can't believe this reckless driving around the city is tolerated.
I'm sure the businesses loved the thousands of extra people in town but I wonder how the residents feel about this event and how it's run.
I stayed at the Holiday Inn at 17th street and we ate at several establishments and I'll be working on reviews but if anyone has any questions I'll try to answer in a day or two.Edited: 22 May 2017, 10:42
