Founded in 1881, the seaside Chautauqua community of Ocean Park has a history and heritage as a summer assembly in the Chautauqua tradition. Each summer it offers lectures, workshops, family programs, and opportunities for spiritual growth and renewal in a non-denominational, inter-faith setting.
The seven mile beach and the surrounding marsh and forest land are national treasures. The historic buildings of Ocean Park are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Larry Bleiberg, co-author of The 100 Best Affordable Vacations, a guide published by National Geographic that can make your next trip memorable, claims Chautauquas are “like a theme park for the mind.”
The Chautauqua communities below are members of the Chautauqua Network.
