Why New Jersey Family Beach Vacations Are So Popular

Atlantic City, once home to mobsters and bootleggers, is most famously known for the Boardwalk. Along the wooden footway are a plethora of casinos, bars, restaurants and performance theater. Laying so gently along this is the pale yellow beach which radiates the sun’s glare so flawlessly. At nighttime, the lights shine bright, the food is delicious, and ice cream doesn’t stop getting served no matter what.


Summer is almost here, but you may want an early vacation from work. This city is a remarkable once in a lifetime experience. Some say New Jersey has a history longer than New York. The traditional 19th-century wooden architecture smell of times gone by while the interiors of the shops and restaurants are similar to upscale NYC. Adults come for the sun, and the restaurants and the kids come for the ice cream and sand. Atlantic City is still what it always was, a diamond in the rough.

Stone Harbor
A quiet family beach, in the heart of a small town. Scarcely any hustle or bustle, you can shop at your leisure as the locals like to take life slow and steady round these parts. The bay’s complex ecosystem is unique along the east coast, so if you’re feeling in the mood to get an in-depth history lesson head down to the Wetland Institute.  The beaches are never crowded as many are doing their upscale shopping on the famous 96th street. The town has so much to offer kids, with kayaking, surfing, bike renting tours and an excellent mini golf course, all at their disposal. Finish off the day with the world famous ice cream from Springer. 100% homemade, with locally sourced milk and chocolate, Springer Ice Cream is almost 100 years old since it’s been around since the early 1920s.

Point Pleasant Beach
A superb family vacation destination. This boardwalk features a world-class aquarium with some of the most exotic fish from around the globe. The aquarium harbors anything from penguins, alligators, seal to sharks and stingrays. At night, the strip becomes alive with live entertainment. The kids won’t get bored in the Jenkinsons’ South Amusement Park. To top it all off, Frankie’s Bar and Grill serve one of the juiciest 10-ounce steaks in the entire state. For desert, Hoffman’s homemade ice cream peanut butter, and bonbon flavor will more than satisfy your sweet tooth.

New Jersey has some of the best food and drinks you’ll get at any beach resort, anywhere in the world. With its history intact, yet it’s willingness to modernize, you can see why New Jersey is one of a kind.
