As COVID continues to cancel Travel plans to other countries, Tony and I took the time to spend a week at the beach with my parents in Ocean City, NJ. I recently did a blog post on OCNJ and shared a ton of my favorites. You can check it out here.
I wanted to share today a vacation round up on the blog of what we did during the week!
Sticky Buns from Mallons.
Eagles Game at Charlies // The best neighborhood bar in Somers Point.
Shopping on Asbury Ave // My favorites are Heritage and 7th Street Surf Shop.
Iced Lattes from Drip and Scoop.
Painted Pumpkins at Glazed Over.
Rented Bikes to Ride on the Boardwalk.
Coffee at Drip and Scoop.
Brown’s Donuts- These are a can’t miss during a week at OCNJ.
Lunch at the Anchorage Tavern in Somers Point.
Dinner at The Crab Trap in Somers Point.
A visit to Local, the best gym on the island.
Cold Brew at Ocean City Coffee Co.
Lunch at the Princeton in Avalon NJ.
Wine Tasting at Cape May Winery.
Brews at Cape May Brewing Co. The Crushing’ It.
Brunch at Dockside Kitchen right on the Bay.
Hard Rock Casino for dinner and gambling!
Nauti Donuts // This was our first time here. It was similar to Duck Donuts where you pick your toppings on your donuts. Yum! They also had cold brew with pumpkin flavoring.
Manco Manco Pizza, because you can’t come to OCNJ without getting Manco Manco // Tony and I love this pizza so much we would drive from Baltimore just to have it!
Ice Cream from Kohr Bros // They had a pumpkin cinnamon swirl. It was out of this world! Best Pumpkin ice cream I have ever had.
Shrivers Salt Water Taffy // I love to do the pick your own so I can get all the Vanilla and Peanut Butter flavors.
Johnson’s Popcorn // Always make sure to ask for the lid off, it will give you more popcorn.
OCNJ is the beach town I grew up going to, and it’s still my favorite to go back and visit! Sharing my favorites with you guys today.
Manco and Manco Pizza // You will never find a better pie down the shore. It is to die for. I will drive from Baltimore just for this pizza. They have three locations on the boardwalk and one in Somers Point.
Browns // One of the most classic places for breakfast in town. And don’t forget to get a donut or two while you are there.
Sunrise Cafe // One of my favorites for breakfast. You probably won’t want to leave until you buy one of their coffee mugs.
Ocean City Coffee Co. // Strolling on Asbury or on the boardwalk, Ocean City Coffee Co. has a spot for you. Their 9th and Boardwalk location is my favorite. Total beach coffee shop vibes.
Drip & Scoop // Sweet tooth? They’ve got it covered. From lattes, to ice cream, and donuts. Their donuts remind me of funnel cake which makes them that much better.
The Crab Trap // Right before the bridge to OCNJ is the Crab Trap in Somers Point. If you have never had their crab soup, I highly recommend. Ocean City is a dry town, but Somers Point isn’t so most nights we have dinner right outside of Ocean City so that we can enjoy a cocktail.
Crabby Jacks // Looking for casual dinner on the water, this place is located right behind The Crab Trap and its a perfect pier bar for apps and drinks.
Heritage Surf Shop // In need of a new pair of rainbows or sunbum sunscreen to get you through the week? This is your go to place. I actually started shopping at the Margate location first, but the OC location is a bit larger!
Island Gypsy // A newer shop that is perfect for any twenty something. All the pieces are on trend and the vibe inside is great.
7th Street Surf Shop // I most definitely have been shopping here since high school and it is still just that good.
