History of Midland Beach
Once populated with oceanside resort communities, Midland Beach drew beach-goers looking to escape the city and spend the warm months swimming in the surf, sunning on the shore, and playing at the area's famous amusement park, Happyland. Visitors would spend their summers gambling at Midland Beach's casinos, catching Vaudeville acts, or fishing off the piers. Now, the neighborhood is home to fulltime residents who still enjoy the new recreational opportunities along the boardwalk.
