A visit to Ocean City, MD in March sounded a little crazy but we do like the ocean in every season and it was well within our budget. It was driveable, our criteria for that being less than eight hours, so we decided to take the chance. After all, we had been there in August and in October, could March be that bad?The absolute best part about visiting Ocean City is that you can visit Assateague Island where wild ponies abound. We were not disappointed. We were able to acquire a timeshare week as an extra vacation from RCI at Club Ocean Villas II for . It was a two-bedroom with an outdoor Jacuzzi and supposedly a block from the beach—not exactly true—but it was an excellent price for seve...Read More

We chose Club Ocean Villas II because it was available as an extra vacation through RCI and it sounded the best of the choices available this week.The unit was a two-bedroom but because it is marketed as being able to be used as a lockout, the result is that the master bedroom looks like a hotel room. It is rather small for a time-share master bedroom, which was disappointing.This unit (194) happens to be on the street side of the resort. It has a courtyard with its very own outside jacuzzi, definitely its strongest asset! Ocean City rules stipulate that all hot tubs must be cleaned weekly so it was very clean and very enjoyable. We were able to sit in it during a snowfall which was wond...Read More

Restaurant | "BJ's on the Water"

BJ's is right on the water bay side which means you should go at sunset for an awesome view. The restaurant's non-smoking area is completely surrounded with windows so you will not miss that sunset! This was truly a great experience! At sunset, they played Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong followed by Ray Charles' America. It gave me goosebumps and is actually giving me them now just writing about it. The sound system in this restaurant is really great. They played Motown all night which was fine with us! The food is good here. I had a combination chicken teriyaki and shrimp scampi served with rice, onions, mushrooms, broccoli, baked potato. The salad with feta cheese vinaigrette was fresh and cold. ...Read More

The Dough Roller

Restaurant

I definitely will not recommend this restaurant, though my niece says it is her favorite. Go figure!
It took us a while to get seated and then awhile for the waitress to come over.
I had the Omelette style egg sandwich on Sourdough and home fries. Not good! However, the coffee was very good.
Jim had the "Three Roller" which was 3 pancakes, 3 eggs, 3 slices of bacon which he described as just mediocre. For breakfast, go to Dumser's-much better!!!!

You MUST see Assateague Island when you visit Ocean City, Maryland. It is located about 10 miles from the southern end of Ocean City across the bridge. There is a charge to enter the National Park. It is $6 for the day but, for $10, you can get a pass to enter all week, or for $20, you can get an annual pass. Definitely get the $10 because I guarantee you will return.Wild ponies abound on this island! They are so beautiful. There are many theories as to how these ponies came to live here. The most popular theory is that they were on a shipwreck and swam to shore. There are about 100 horses that live here. The newest pony was born Christmas Eve 2006. We saw him nursing so we knew it was h...Read More
