OCEAN CITY, Md.  - When it comes to who has the best beach, Ocean City, Maryland has earned some bragging rights.

"I think that's amazing. It's quite amazing we ranked higher than them," said Demarius Hardy of Burlington, North Carolina.  "This particular part of the earth is phenomenal  I love what Ocean City offers. I love the Thrashers french fries, the popcorn. All the great things that we have here."
People out enjoying an unseasonably warm day at the Ocean City beach Thursday agreed with that assessment saying the ranking could help shed a positive light on the area.
