Summer is quickly approaching and it's time to start planning your vacation! One of the best spots in the U.S. is the Jersey Shore, a haven of beaches, boardwalks, and birding.
There's a lot to do on the Jersey Shore. Here are some suggestions for summer fun on the Jersey Shore. Enjoy your trip!
Travel back in time to the Victorian era in Cape May's downtown Historic District. Some of the period's finest architecture remains in pristine condition sporting turrets, stained-glass windows, and more. Explore the area on foot or take a ride on one of Cape May's famous trolleys.
Standing since 1859, the Cape May Lighthouse is a New Jersey icon. You'll find it at Cape May Point State Park, the southernmost point of New Jersey.
In addition to the lighthouse, the park offers several coastal and forest hiking trails. This renowned natural area is one of the best birding spots in the U.S. featuring numerous summer shorebirds. When September strikes, you can spot raptors migrating south along the Jersey Shore.
The classic East Coast boardwalk experience can easily be found near Cape May. Head over to Wildwood and you'll find Morey's Piers, a 6-block amusement park on the beach. The carnival ride and water parks are just one part of the 38-block Wildwood Boardwalk. Along with the attractions, you can enjoy sandy beaches and scenic seaside views.
Deals abound in the outlet malls of Atlantic City. Score deep savings on big name brands at the Tanger Outlets or head over to The Quarter at Tropicana for a shopping experience in the middle of the action.
More of an art buff? The Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University may just have your next prized possession.
One unique aspect of Long Beach Island is that it does not have a boardwalk. Instead, the island features miles of sandy beaches, with small shops and restaurants along the main strip. For those seeking a small town feel and quiet Jersey Shore beaches, Long Beach Island is the place to be.

Granted, this attraction is a bit inland, but it's well worth the trip. Six Flags Great Adventure & Safari features rip-roaring fun for the whole family. Thrill-seekers can take on coasters like BIZARRO™ and BATMAN™, while family rides like the Big Wheel and Congo Rapids offer a gentler adventure.
We hope you love the Jersey Shore as much as we do. Let others know about its amazing attractions by sharing this post on social media!
