The History Behind
Ocean City's Boardwalk
The Ocean City Boardwalk is an entertainment mainstay for visitors and locals alike and has been for more than 100 years. Hotels and businesses, like the Atlantic Hotel, would lay down boards for guests to walk on and remove them at high tide. Around 1910, a permanent promenade was constructed. Throughout the years the boardwalk has changed, but to this day many businesses still remain. Fisher's Popcorn is celebrating its 86th year this summer, Thrasher's French Fries is one year away from celebrating its 95th anniversary, Dolle's has been operating since 1910 and Trimper's has been in existence for 130 years.
