Two states, two Ocean Cities. But which is which?
One has a swim up bar and spots like the Brass Balls Saloon; the other is so dry it doesn’t even allow BYOB.
One pushes its family friendly image with billboards showing families; the other still uses a stale lifeguard campaign.
Only one gloated about its plan to steal away visitors from a storm-damaged area, so you can guess why my tone favors one town over the other.
But they do share the same name, and for the last seven years I’ve had a Google alert set for Ocean City, which means I’ve read a lot about both.
Can you tell which is which? Below are some Ocean City headlines from this summer.
