For those in search of a calmer beach experience, nearby Assateague National Island Seashore can be a good alternative to Ocean City. And there's another perk to this great park- you can have bonfires on the beach. There is no better way to unwind than to sit around a fire with friends, eating s’mores, and looking up at the stars - which are easier to see at the park, miles away from civilization. It’s something I’ve done regularly for many years. If you’re going to have a fire on the beach, you'll need to pay an entry fee to get into the park.

" She made sure to make it a memorable one. In her opening round, Thomas hit her approach shot on the par-5 14th hole within an inch of the hole, tapping it in for one of her three birdies. The Golf Channel named it "The Shot of the Day" and she was interviewed following the round.

Neil Simon's "Brighton Beach Memoirs" opens the 55th season for Prince George's Little Theatre, and the production at Bowie Playhouse qualifies as the troupe's strongest start in recent memory. This is inspired theater by every measure, starting with the choice of the largely autobiographical 1968 work by Simon, which traces his adolescent years, to begin what became known as his Eugene Trilogy. Perhaps because of frequent stagings of "The Odd Couple" and other favorites at regional theaters, Simon is sometimes dismissed as a master of the one-liner but lacking in substance.

A 70-year-old film that captures annual summertime excursions to Carr's Beach in Annapolis will debut at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Walbrook Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library , 2302 W. North Ave. The original footage, found on E-Bay and made into a DVD, shows employees of a city insurance company spending a day at the only beach open to African-Americans in the era of segregation. Organizers are asking seniors who have memories of the beach, which was a popular resort that drew well known black entertainers, to help them identify those pictured in the film.

Lawyers for the owner of an island in the Magothy River argued Thursday that if the state's highest court forces David and Diana Clickner to open their beach to the public, it would set a troubling precedent and raise liability issues for all waterfront property owners. But an attorney for the Magothy River Association, which sued the Clickners for access to a 1,200 foot swath of sand, argued that her clients have met the legal requirements to be granted an easement. The Court of Appeals on Thursday took up the case of the beach on Dobbins Island – whether the public has a right to use a beach that is privately owned, mainly because they have always done so. Last year, Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Ronald A. Silkworth granted what's called a "prescriptive easement," ruling that the beach up to where grasses and shrubs grow is public, and ordered the Clickners, who purchased the 7-acre island in 2004 with plans to build a home there, to remove a fence they'd erected.

Everybody likes to look their best on the beach right? Of course we all do, especially when you're bronzing up in the summer sun. Well, maybe you aren't at the shore for long, maybe just a weekend or a few days, but you should considering taking advantage of different workout opportunities the beach provides. No gym membership needed for this style of workout, the beach itself is your gym. For those looking for a nice wake up to the day try a nice walk along the shore. It's a great way to get the day started and force yourself to get on the beach early.

Ocean City officials voted earlier this week to draft a law to restrict smoking on the beach and boardwalk beginning May 1, 2015. The proposed ordinance, which passed on a 4-3 vote at a work session for the town council on Tuesday, identifies a number of designated areas for smoking along the boardwalk and on the beach. Police will be responsible for enforcement of the law through verbal as well as written citations ranging from $25 to $1,000, a "worse-case scenario" for non-compliance.

Baltimore beach volleyball is a highly visible contrast to the many negatives often associated with Baltimore ( "How to save Baltimore's beach volleyball," Aug. 6). In fact, an investment banker who is an avid player told me it was the main reason he chose Baltimore to live and work. It is not only a place to play and unwind after a hard day's or week's work, it is an inviting social setting to network with real live, lively people. I actually discovered the Inner Harbor myself when my daughter played and ended up moving to Key Highway.

The beach. The beautiful water. The strolls along the boardwalk for summer foods. The lovely house with the wraparound porch and the sunny breakfast nook. And the two-hour backup on the Bay Bridge. The rowdy, half-naked crowds pushing in line for french fries and saltwater taffy. The expensive rental house with the unstable porch, not to mention the dingy decor. Beach vacations can be a mixed bag - and that's when you've taken care of the things you can plan for. Bad weather, unexpected traffic and incompatibility among friends who don't work so well as weeklong housemates can all put a damper on what you hoped would be a great vacation.

A sighting of a bull shark off Sandy Point State Park Monday prompted a brief closure of one of the swimming areas, but the park's manager said the popular Chesapeake Bay beach returned to "business as usual" on Tuesday after seeing no more of the wide-ranging predator. Ranger Steve McCoy, Sandy Point's manager, said a fisherman reported seeing a small bull shark around 5:30 p.m. Monday near the east beach. A ranger walked out on the rock jetty jutting into the water and confirmed seeing some type of shark, McCoy said, so park personnel moved "a handful of people" to the lifeguard-monitored main beach in another area of the park and kept a close watch on the shark.

MY HUSBAND and I have vacationed every year of our married life at exactly the same spot on the Atlantic Ocean.I have tried to persuade him to visit a new section of beach -- something farther north or farther south -- but each year he repeats that he is not a "changer," the unspoken codicil being that this trait bodes well for me as his wife.He has also pointed out, quite accurately, that 10 or 12 hours in an overstuffed station wagon with the battling pre-adolescents we travel with would be no one's idea of vacation.
