Signs of Ocean City, Maryland, Part III

Welcome to MORE signs, logos, locally-owned businesses from Maryland's favorite summer time beach town. Already posted in Signs of OC, Part I are: English's, Kohr Bros, Rick's Market, Jonah and the Whale Buffet, Layton's restaurants, General's Kitchen, Nicks Pancake House, Cowboy Coast, Plim Plaza, Yummy Sweet Shop, the Fractured Prune and King Kone.

Signs of OC, Part II included the Oceanic pier, Anthony's Deli, Billy's Subs & Pizza, the Sahara Cafe, M.R. Ducks, Justine's Ice Cream, the Princess Royale Oceanfront and the Cabana motel.

Fisher's Popcorn is a tough name to say - without in your mind, quickly conjuring up images of sticky-sweet caramel popcorn, freshly cooked and best enjoyed while strolling down the boards. For that reason this iconic favorite became the first local business to be included here in part three.

Up close at the counter.... can almost taste the golden crunchiness.

Did you know that Fisher's was established in 1937?

My favorite is the one drizzled in chocolate. 😜
Congratulations to Fisher's as they celebrate
their 80TH anniversary this year!

At Coastal Highway and 23rd Street there are dragons!
These terrifying creatures stand guard at the
downtown location of Old Pro Mini Golf
No course is complete without a Temple of Doom, right?
Actually, it IS called "Temple of the Dragon"
During a snowstorm last winter it looked as if
the dragons were catching snowflakes 😀

Dead Freddies on the Bay at 64th Street is a
great place for food and entertainment.
Opened May 2010, probably one of it's best-loved characteristics is the beach and playground area on the bay.

Fun City Arcade on the Boardwalk

This is one of my favorite places to take photos!
Between the signage and the lights, it's a win-win.

Unfortunately there's no info on date or history on the Facebook page, and no website that I could find.

An old YouTube promo

Still to be added here: Phillip's, Daytons chicken, Guido's Burritos and more.
