Live Beach Webcam at Ocean City - Maryland
More info: Ocean City is an Atlantic resort town in Worcester County, Maryland. It is located between the Atlantic Ocean and Isle of wight Bay and has 10 miles of sandy beach. During the summer, Ocean City becomes the second most populated municipality in Maryland, after Baltimore. Ocean City is most famous for its boardwalk, beach, salt-water taffy ( candy ) and its status as the White Marlin Capital of the World.
Originally called the "Atlantic Avenue", the first Ocean City boardwalk was constructed in 1902. After being damaged by a storm in 1962, the boardwalk was rebuilt to stretch a total of 2.5 miles. Many years later, in 1985, the boardwalk suffered extensive storm damage during Hurricane Gloria which pummelled Ocean City with 89 MPH winds. The boardwalk was refurbished and a concrete sea wall was soon constructed following the storm to prevent further damage. In 2012, that the Ocean City Boardwalk was damaged again as a result of Hurricane Sandy and was restored again.
