History

North Beach was incorporated in 1910. The town was a gambling vacation for summer visitors from the Washington, D.C. area during the 1940s. In the 1960s and 1970s it became a destination for motorcycle gangs.
Revitalization began in the 1980s, and escalated in the 1990s. Tropical Storm Isabel destroyed many of the waterfront homes and boardwalk in 2003. Since then, the waterfront of North Beach has been rebuilt with multi-story homes and a condominium. North Beach currently has no gambling venues, other than MD Lottery sales, although many establishments in Chesapeake Beach offer games that exploit loopholes in the current laws to make playing profitable for patrons. The legalizing of slot machines at some horse racing tracks passed in a statewide referendum in November 2008.
