Do you remember walking along the boardwalk with your parents when you were a child, begging for one of the boardwalk’s many tempting snacks and riding rides? Perhaps your duty was to hop out of the car and stand in a parking space to hold it as your parents drove around, getting extra points if you found one with money still on the meter. Or maybe you developed your own traditions when you came to Ocean City with your children and want to share those with your parents.  Perhaps you’ve never been to Ocean City, and want to discover it with your family.  Whether you’re Ocean City veterans or newcomers, Mother’s Day is the perfect time to visit.  The weather is perfect for strolling the boardwalk, playing a game of mini golf and enjoying outdoor bars.  The businesses are opening and looking their best after winter renovations.  The summer rush is not yet upon the city. Make Mother’s Day of 2017 about tradition, whether it’s reliving the past or starting something new that will be remembered for years to come.
