Summer in Ocean City is great for making new friends and memories.

A couple weeks ago I was asked to play softball for Kirby’s Pub at Northside Park. I was all for joining the roster, even though I hadn’t picked up a bat or glove in over a decade. Needless to say, watching me play softball is quite hilarious.

After the game Monday, a few of us went to Coconuts on 37th Street to eat and hangout. The girls decided to play corn hole, and my bean bags kept landing on the volleyball court and nowhere near the board. How good I am (or not) doesn’t really matter as long as it’s a good time with positive vibes and great friends.

While in Ocean City for summer, vacation or living life as a local, keep in mind that you’re here. So take a breath, check out at all of the fun things to do, enjoy a cold one and take a few pictures.
