OCEAN CITY, Md. — Atlantic City and Virginia Beach had a love child. They called it Ocean City.
I’m not sure what I was expecting, but certainly not the mindblowing panorama that is Ocean City, when approached by the bridge over the bay. The buildings spread the length of the inlet and seem to be floating on the water. It’s very pretty, but looks aren’t everything.
The boardwalk is crowded with arcades and kitsch-crammed souvenir shops; the beach is as scent- and personality-free as Myrtle Beach.
