Things to do in Ocean City this week

I’m going to amend this header to call it thing to do in the region, because this week we have a day trip pick: Go to Chincoteague and participate in nature. It’s similar nature to Assateague, but it is in Virginia, so it is more exotic and a little bit old-timeier

There is a beer festival in Salisbury the week of June 18. That, we know, is the weekend of the air show. But we’re providing transport to and from the festival at several sites in Ocean City, so take four hours off of watching the skies to have a local beer, dance and look at a bit of art…



I would call it Senior Week just yet, but we’ll have plenty of recent grads coming to town over the next month or so. The Play it Safe program does a great job, but planning ahead has its own merits. Either way, if you wanna get out on a jet ski before the water gets too crowded, there’s a coupon code and a link at the bottom of this story:

Ocean City Happy Hours

Our Happy Hour pick for the week is the Angler. Take advantage of the beautiful weather at every turn, in case it doesn’t stay this way forever. Get out, sit and enjoy the view as well as the drinks.

Brunch recommendations

What makes the most sense for Memorial Day Weekend is to build your own brunch, which is easy to do at the General’s Kitchen. If it is a breakfast food, they make it, and if they make it, it’s going to be tasty.
