Rockaway Beach Chamber of Commerce
The Rockaway Beach Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center is 100% powered by Volunteers. A special Thanks to all who have donated to enhance it!
Our Community supported Chamber has promoting tourism and Rockaway Beach for nearly 36 years. Starting as the Gold Coast Merchants, becoming the Rockaway Beach Chamber of Commerce in 1979.
Today you will find "The Little Red Caboose" that serves as The Rockaway Beach Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center office set up at the Oceans Edge Wayside as a symbol and tribute to these beginnings.
The first passenger train came to Rockaway in 1912. At all the beach resorts in those days, it was quite an occasion when the Friday afternoon train arrived, bringing the daddies who were joining their families for the week-end, thus earning the name of "Daddy-Train thus our little red caboose".
