Ocean City New Jersey Wall Mural by Artist David Gilhooley

Ocean City New Jersey Wall Mural by Artist David Gilhooley
Ocean City in New Jersey is one of the most popular Jersey Shore destinations for travelers who are heading to the beach. Ocean City is a family resort and coastal town. You'll find no bars, pubs, night clubs or liquor stores on the island. It's one of the features that draws millions of families to their beaches every year.

Another great feature to Ocean City is their fun boardwalk! You'll find hundreds of different gift shops, souvenir stores, restaurants, cafes, miniature golf courses, amusement rides and other fun attractions as you stroll up and down the boards. You'll also see the world-famous Ocean City Music Pier that hosts all kinds of different attractions & events throughout the year.

When we travel we like to search out local street art and wall murals, and we've documented many of them here on the travel blog over the years. We're particularly fond of outdoor wall murals that depict sea life and beach life. You can take a peek at some of the ones that we've found during our travels in our Street Art and Wall Murals section right here on the blog.

On a recent weekend getaway down to Ocean City in New Jersey we spotted this huge hand-painted wall mural on the side of a building up on the boardwalk. The entire scene depicts the boardwalk, music pier, amusement rides, shops, the beach and of course...the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. This long mural is located at 720 Boardwalk Avenue. The mural is paint on concrete and was painted by the talented artist David Gilhooley. This is the first mural of his that we've ever seen and trust me, it's gorgeous!

I would want to go to Ocean City just to see all the beautiful murals. This one is one of the nicest yet, although it is hard to compare the murals of sea animals to the boardwalk scene.
