What Bert Has To Say About Ocean City Metro Area

Ocean City is just south of the bustling and quite-different Atlantic City and has been an established family-oriented resort and tourist destination for years. Unlike Atlantic City, it isn’t on the national and international radar but is mostly enjoyed by vacationers from nearby East Coast cities, the nearest of which is Philadelphia.
