The Ocean City Chamber of Commerce has been the lead organization on a bold marketing campaign in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania region to promote Ocean City as a great vacation destination on less then a tank away. This campaign is similar to the campaign that the Chamber launched in the 70’s when there was a gas shortage.

A popular Jersey Shore community for over 125 years, Ocean City was founded by a group of Methodist ministers who established the family theme. The City has evolved over the years into a popular vacation center with many special events, recreational activities, entertainment programs and water sports.
