They're not in the restaurants or the bars and the hotels have many vacancy's available. That crowd doesn't really have any money to spend so they just gather in whatever field is set aside for them outside of town. They really are a non-issue. There aren't too many of them at all.

The bikes, however, would be an issue if someone doesn't want to deal with them. The restaurants and the bars are packed. The hotels are full. The noise. The burnouts. It's called Delmarva bike week and it has gotten pretty big. No, it's not like Daytona but we are starting to see a bunch of bikers from SC on up to Maine and west to the Mississippi. It pretty much covers the whole central part of Delmarva with OC being a main gathering place. Personally, I think it's good for the town and there aren't really any problems. No more then a typical summer weekend. But I figured it should be mentioned for someone to consider it if they are planning a weekend get away.
It is really interesting to hear that point of view from a local. I was under the impression that the locals hated the VW crowd especially after that guy put his supra into a stairwell. I have been going for years now and if I wasn't into cars I would think I would hate it. Most of the bars and clubs are filled with people in their 20s and the strip is absolutely packed with cars all day and night.

The locals aren't to fond of them because they don't spend any money. The bikers fill up the bars and restaurants and spend a lot of money. Yea, the bikes are loud but the people have no problem going out. Personally I'm not to fond of the VW's. Not my style. I like the classic cars. However, locals complain about them as well because they break out their lawn chairs and drink what they brought from home. They don't spend much. But in their defense, they are there to look at cars. They can't hang out in the bars and show off their cars.
