Myrtle beach and the Outer Banks are more friendly to gun owners and honor my carry permit.
If I had to think about carrying a gun on my vacation I wouldn't go there. Not much rest and relaxation if you think about it.
As far as Ocean City is concerned: You'll be fine, just stay away from the rif-raff at the base of the boardwalk between 12am and 2 am. Any other time, you are safe and the city is fairly quiet.
Staying in OC and have small kids... drive to Rehobeth DE. The prices are much better for rides and stuff. The boardwalk is very quiet with far less "characters" than OC. Takes about an hour and the kids will enjoy it.
