Most of the real estate in Ocean City is owned by the shoobies, which is why some consider it to be a "dead town" in the winter. The year-rounders are typically wholesome people who like to smoke some weed in their free time. Their kids are coke head homecoming queens and gansta surfers with dreadlocks.
The locals can tell you about the underground quirkiness of the town. For example, everyone who lives there knows about Slobber Bob and Underdog Girl. Also essential to the town are Express Pizza, Sack O' Subs, 7th Street Surf Shop, Denovum, and, of course, The Boardwalk.
