For a sweet treat head to Dumser's for an ice cream sundae and don't forget to pack along some board games to play late at night. :) Have a great trip!
Here are some ideas from a post from my fellow Insider Darlene. These are all open for business this weekend:
play mini golf at two indoor locations on 68th and 136th St.
rent bicycles and ride on the boards. Try Dandy Don's on 2nd St.
go ice skating indoors at the Carousel Hotel
play laser tag at Planet Maze
drive go karts at Baja Amusements in West Ocean City
visit the Life Saving Station Museum on the boardwalk
take the historic Walking Tour of Ocean City. You'll find the brochures in your hotel lobby or at the visitor's center at the Convention Center
drive to Assateague and see the wild ponies there and visit the nature center on the way in
visit the commercial fishing district in West Ocean City
go bowling or see a movie
buy a kite or two and fly them on the beach
As for beaches and other activities, there is always something to do in OC! Spring is one of my favorite times to visit. Great time to have a seashell hunt, ride bikes on the board, shop in all the great stores, play mini golf or go bowling, and relax!
Trust me - you will enjoy your visit to OC in April! Don't forget to use the trip planner on www.ococean.com. It's a great tool.

If the weather is nice, many of the boardwalk shops will be open (however shorter operating hours).
If you are looking for a place to stay on the boards, highly recommend Holiday Inn Suites or Quality Inn Boardwalk.
Have a great weekend!
