The Chesapeake Beach Boardwalk Looking North
Visitors enjoyed strolling along the Boardwalk, which was nearly a mile long, and enjoyed taking in the many attractions. Going north from the entertainment bandshell, which is visible in the right of this picture, in the direction of the railway station, one would find the dancing pavilion, several eateries, a photo studio, and a swimming area. During the peak of the summer season, thousands of visitors would make the day trip to the Beach. For more historical information, please visit the Chesapeake Railway Museum.
