Most of the houses located close to the beaches have glass walls as one cannot simply keep their eyes off the beauty of the locality. So if you are planning to move to Ocean Beach, visiting it, or buying a property there then this quick guide is definitely your next best friend. 

History

Before 1887, Ocean Beach was known as Mussel Beach because of infinite mussels found on the shore. The development of this less inhabited area started in 1887 when Albert E. Higgins and Billy Carlson, the two developers, visited and named it the Ocean Beach due to a series of ocean beaches here. The slow but steady development was sped up with the development of Ocean Beach Railroad. Later, Ocean Beach Elementary School, Correia Middle School, YMCA, Church, and Cleator Community Park attracted more people from all over America but the core center of attention became the construction of Wonderland Amusement Park. 

As more people started visiting Ocean Beach, the investors took advantage of its clear blue water and golden sand, and introduced water sports. Surfing was introduced in 1916, soon followed by Kahanamoku. In 1970s, local urban development started including construction of more attractive houses, tourist resorts, hotels, restaurants, and beachside entertainment zones.
