Eat your heart out

The perfect meal can make a staycation feel like a pilgrimage. Ocean City Restaurant Week begins on April 19 and runs through the end of the month, giving you an opportunity to try all the crabs, steaks and seafood that you want. Participating restaurants will offer special fixed price menus made just for the occasion. Don’t worry: Most restaurants that close for the winter season or have limited winter hours are back to normal by April.

Hit the links

It’s OK if you’re a little rusty. Get your swing back after the winter layoff at one of the 17 courses in the Ocean City area. The Links at Lighthouse Sound, Run Pointe Seaside Golf Links and Eagle’s Landing Golf Course each have earned recognition for being among the best golf courses in Maryland. Other public courses include Ocean City Golf Club, Baywood Greens and River Run Golf Club.

Reel in the big one

It doesn’t matter what your friends say—you know how big that whopper was that you just missed last year. Come back and get the trophy (and the picture) this April before most out-of-town anglers get their lines in the water. Flounder, rockfish, sea bass, red drum and black drum can all be caught inshore in Ocean City waters in April. If you’re a landlubber, you can cast off from Inlet Park, Third St. Pier, Ninth St. Pier and Northside Park. (Fishing licenses required) 

Get back to nature

When we said getaway, we meant get away. There are plenty of beautiful open spaces along the shore where daily stresses can’t find you. Assateague Island National Seashore—known for its wild horses—has been named one of the country’s most beautiful National Park beaches by USA Today and National Geographic. Across the border in Delaware is Fenwick Island State Park and Assawoman Wildlife Area, home to bald eagles, river otters and pileated woodpeckers.
