New Jersey Under the Boardwalk


Jersey Shore

New Jersey's crown jewel remains their 127 miles of coastline, spanning from Sandy Hook to Cape May. Their unmatched beaches boast beautiful barrier islands and bays dotted with majestic lighthouses, fishing villages and scenic views.

New Jersey's coastline along the Atlantic Ocean and 83 miles of shoreline along the Raritan and Delaware Bays provides an unsurpassed combination of ecological riches, economic opportunity and quality of life for both residents and visitors alike. Miles of sandy beaches, bustling boardwalks and busy coastal waterways provide New Jersey with a robust tourism industry estimated to be worth over $16 billion annually. Over 1.5 million migratory shorebirds call New Jersey's pristine wildlife refuges and tidal wetlands home. New Jersey’s bays, rivers, marine estuaries and oceanic habitat contribute to a commercial fishing industry that harvests over 50 different species of finfish and shellfish annually, and boasts world-class recreational fishing, clamming and crabbing.
The Northern Jersey Shore region can be broken up into four areas, the Raritan Bay, the North Shore, the Barnegat Peninsula and Long Beach Island. Each beach area has its own character and you're sure to find one that offers the attractions you enjoy. If you're looking for nature, check out Sandy Hook or Island Beach State Park. For exciting amusement rides and water parks, nothing beats going to Keansburg, Pt Pleasant or Seaside Heights/Seaside Park (collectively referred to as Seaside). For the lighthouse enthusiasts there are several to choose from, including Old Barney (Barnegat Lighthouse) on the northern tip of Long Beach Island and the oldest lighthouse in North America, Sandy Hook.

Southern Jersey Shore: You can't go any further south in NJ than Cape May and the southern shore region. Spend your vacation reliving the 50's in Wildwood, where Doo Wop was invented and is still alive today in the many 50's hotels. If you really want to go back in time, then nothing beats the relaxation of Cape May, with it's many Victorian era Bed & Breakfasts. Cape May is THE location for romance on the Jersey Shore.

Home of Atlantic City, this area offers anything from gambling to Lucy the Elephant, to several wineries. Atlantic City is not just about the casinos anymore. There are the beach bars with live music right on the beach, the shopping such as the Pier at Caesars and The Walk, which features top of the line shopping experiences, then of course there are many new world class restaurants that have recently opened. Still no trip to AC would be complete without a stroll down the historic Boardwalk, which was the world's first (constructed in 1870) and is still the world's longest, climb up Absecon Lighthouse or get a fantastic view of Atlantic City from the top of the Ferris wheel at historic Steel Pier. For the art lover, don't miss a trip to Noyes Art Museum and then head into Historic Smithville for some shopping and dinner at the Smithville Inn.
