Things to do on a rainy weekend in Ocean City.

Chris and I spent two nights in Ocean City this past weekend and even though the weather wasn’t great, we had a great time! I have to once again thank my parents for their help…I don’t know what we would do without them.

I’m going to warn you now, this post is very picture happy. πŸ™‚

We arrived in the late afternoon and checked into our hotel, The Dunes Manor.

The view from our balcony. πŸ™‚

The sunset later that evening…I love this picture.

I googled some dinner options because a lot of restaurants and hotels are closed during the off season. We decided on the Coral Reef Cafe in the Day’s Inn on 17th Street and it turned out to be a great pick. We were a little concerned at first, but our bartender (Patrick) was super nice and the food was really good. I ordered the Coral Reef Turkey Sandwich (focaccia, turkey, avocado, lettuce, tomato, and red pepper aioli) with a side of sweet potato fries. These fries were AMAZING.

After dinner, we headed back to the hotel to relax and watch TV. Yes, this is a fun night for us since sitting and watching adult TV is a luxury now. πŸ™‚ We watched some Full House while eating m&ms and fell asleep by 11 ish.


I started Monday in the best possible ways!

A. A selfie with the ocean

B. A 9 mile run on the boardwalk…in the rain.


C. Breakfast at Dumser’s


The rest of Monday was spent watching the Oriole’s game at The Greene Turtle…

Tea time at our hotel (they have it everyday from 3-4 and it was amazing)…. Me and crumpets and chocolate chip cookies.


Dinner at a restaurant called Hooked… All of the food is acquired locally and everything was fresh and delicious (the lighting was low and my pics didn’t turn out without a flash).

Dessert at Dumser’s… Chris ordered a chocolate milkshake and I got an Oreo super sundae. They make their own ice cream and I could eat the Oreo crush everyday of my life.


I “slept in” until about 7:45 and then headed to the hotel “exercise room”. The room was small and only contained a bike, an elliptical, and a stair stepper, but it was nice to have and it did the job. I rode the bike for 15 minutes and then did the following exercise circuit.

– 15 jump squats with alternating knee raises
– 15 push-ups
– 15 back kicks on each leg
– 10 side tricep push-ups on each side
– 15 tricep dips
– 50 sit ups
– 10 plank push ups on each side

I completed the circuit 3 times and I was a sweaty mess at the end.

After I took a quick shower, we packed and headed down to the Victorian Room for breakfast.

This was our view…the ocean is behind that wall of fog. 😦

French toast and sliced strawberries.


It was sooo nice to have a few days to relax and unwind, but we were so happy to get back to you know who. πŸ™‚ We will see you again soon Ocean City!


If you didn’t stop reading after the 15th picture, where would you go for a weekend getaway if money wasn’t an option?


  1. Looks like fun, great pictures that totally made me hungry..

  2. I love Ocean City – I ran my first 5K there! We always make a stop at Thrashers for the most delicious fries ever.
