How to Spend Your Time Between Gastronomic Adventures
Welcome to Ocean City Restaurant Week. You have no doubt selected the restaurants you plan to visit, and you have made reservations for your hotel room. Besides relaxing walks on the beach, we have a few suggestions on how to spend your time between gastronomic adventures.
Berlin’s Commercial Historic District is just a 10-minute drive from Ocean City. Named Budget Travel's "Coolest Small Town," this 19th century Victorian Village is the location of two major motion pictures, Runaway Bride and Tuck Everlasting. Charming antique shops and boutiques line the streets. An old fashioned soda fountain, a Victorian tearoom and the Calvin B. Taylor House Museum are all a part of the self-guided walking tour. And, don’t miss the opportunity to take an art lesson or just browse, and shop for locally produced jewelry, pottery or canvas art at the Art Galleries in Berlin, Snow Hill and the Art League of Ocean City.
