Prior to 1870, what is now Ocean City was known as "The Ladies Resort to the Ocean."
The Atlantic Hotel, the first major hotel in the town, opened July 4, 1875.
The Ocean City Inlet was formed during a major hurricane in 1933, which also destroyed the train tracks across the Sinepuxent Bay. The inlet separated what is now Ocean City from Assateague Island.
In 1952, with the completion of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, Ocean City became easily accessible to people in the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area.
In 2002, Ocean City undertook the most recent of many, multi-million dollar, beach restoration programs, in an attempt to slow the westward migration of its beaches.
The program pumped tons of sand from offshore and deposited it onto the beach.
Ocean City now extends just over 9 miles (~15 km) from the southern inlet to the Delaware line.
The strip now supports hotels, motels, apartment houses, shopping centers, residential communities, and condominiums.
