If watering holes were a family tree, dock bars would be the crazy uncle. They're loud and colorful, and often their clientele is a culture clash.
This is especially true in and around Dundalk, a traditionally blue collar area with lots of waterfront. Here, you'll find more than a few bars with parking lots on one side and docks on the other.

With summer heating up, we took a trip to the dock bars of the Dundalk Riviera -- also called the Redneck Riviera. Here are five of the standout spots.
