We go to Ocean City every November to visit family at Thanksgiving. We like to walk on the boardwalk and the beach. Neither is crowded and we have been there on weekdays and weekends at probably every time of the day from very early (7am) to late (7:30pm) and it has never been busy. There are very few shops open at this time of the year. Theres a coffee shop, pizza parlor, a candy store, a gift store, a jewelery store and some clothing/mostly T-shirts boutiques. The deals are fantastic as the stores are trying to get rid of the last of their stock. There arent many restaraunts near the shore either. Most activities are shut down. Theres an arcade on the board walk thats open. There's a movie theathre there too but I've never seen it open. Not anything else open as far as activities on the boardwalk. But if you want to travel a short distance there's some neat things to do in the general area.
