Jersey Shore Fact of the Day 24: Grace Kelly was an Ocean City Girl

Grace Kelly might have been a movie star who married into royalty, but she started out as a Philly girl whose family had a house down the shore - specifically Ocean City. Her brother was even a lifeguard. She visited the Ocean City home every summer, even when she was Princess of Monaco, until she died. People magazine has a fascinating article on their website from the first summer she didn't come home.

The Kelly home was at 26th street and Wesley but has been demolished. The Press of Atlantic City has a great article about that, too, which you can read here.

She was beautiful, wasn't she?

Wow, Jen, great post and links. Thanks! Love the movie clip too. She was a beauty. I've been to the Kelly house in OC before it was demolished and peered through the windows imagining what life must have been like there in those times.
