Ocean City, Maryland's Boardwalk dates back to 1902 and is recognized as one of the best Boardwalk's in the country. Featuring shops, eateries, amusements, night life and lodging, Ocean City's Boardwalk blends history and culture with modern convenience and fun. The Boardwalk, officially known as Atlantic Avenue, dates back to 1902, when several oceanfront hotel owners got together and constructed a wooden walkway for the convenience of their guests. At high tide, it was rolled up and stored on hotel porches. Around 1910, a permanent promenade was built. It ran about five blocks and was expanded to 15th Street in the 1920's. After being leveled by a storm in March of 1962, it was rebuilt to its present 2.5 mile length, ending at 27th Street.
