Under the Arches of Ocean City

The boardwalk at Ocean City Maryland is the place to travel to! It initially dates back to 1902 and was built as a removable wooden walk that was stored on the hotel porches at high tide. In 1910 that was replaced with a more permanent walkway that ran about five blocks.

Over the years it’s been redone several times due to wear and tear and storm damage. It was last refurbished in 2012 and now runs about five miles. It is ideal for long walks, bicycling and rollerblading/skating.
