Ocean City, Md. -- 3 hours/145 miles
Oh, come on... who can argue with the beach, boardwalk and rides? Sure, it's lacking the same tacky charm as the Jersey shore, but it's a lot closer -- and anyway, who wants to pack all that hair gel?
Smart phones can do just about anything these days, and now yours could help you plan your next trip to Ocean City, Md.
The Android app is similar to one launched in June for the iPhone. Ocean City Mobile was created by MGH, an advertising agency.
