Looking for ideas/recommendations on what to do while there.
Keep in mind I have a 15 and 13 year old coming along with me.

Having been there with an 8 year old, I suggest you do some online research with what your kids like to do. All we found to do were nature tours by land or boat. After the second tour, my DD wanted to go home. Maybe staying in Ocean City would offer more options and you could always take a day trip to Chincoteague. Our trip was 9 years ago so there may be more activities now.
Edited: As mentioned: bring LOTS of bug spray!

i went last year with my dogs. loved chincoteaque, most gorgeous and unspoiled beach!!! dogs allowed, on leash. didn't have a problem with bugs; think you have to stay away from water areas at nearly dawn / dusk, or maybe i was just lucky. found assateague okay, not as charming as i'd have hoped, but would be great for a couple of kids IF they like to do more sort of old fashioned things, like swimming, crabbing, maybe some berry picking.

Haven't been, but many friends have. It is VERY quiet, which is why I haven't been.
If you enjoy camping, nature, peace and quiet, it is a good place to go. If your kids don't like that, be sure you bring your charger for their smart phones.
