Seaside Heights, NJ Seside Heights best Ocean County NJ shore town attractions
Seaside Heights, NJ 08751

Seaside Heights NJ top 50 Ocean County NJ attractions Seaside Heights… where the FUN is!
For a classic NJ shore town feel, nothing comes close to Seaside Heights NJ. The Seaside Heights beach stretches from Hiering Avenue on the north end to Dupont Avenue on the south end. The beach is famous for its soft white sand and has been voted as one of New Jersey’s Top 10 Beaches.

If you prefer a quieter day at the beach, try the bay beach on the north side of the borough. The shallow swimming beach is an ideal location for younger children to frolic in the water or search for mussels, snails and minnows. During the late morning hours numerous large and small private boats arrive in Seaside Heights Harbor and anchor for the day while other boats make their way through the channel as they steer toward the bridges. At dusk, sit on a bench along the boardwalk and celebrate a sunset that is as brilliant as an ocean beach sunrise. Crabbing and light tackle fishing are favorite pastimes at the north and south bayside docks. Food, fishing tackle and bait, rental boats, and restrooms are available on both sides of the bayfront.

The Seaside Heights Boardwalk endures as an enjoyable and simplistic Jersey Shore vacation destination. With arcade games, waterpark, kiddie and thrill rides, concession stands, and restaurants lining the west side of the Boardwalk Promenade, Seaside Heights provides a combination of nostalgic fun and modern exhilaration. While you can still find skee-ball and pinball machines, visitors today have taken a liking to crane machines that offer the chance to win high priced items such as iPads and smartphones. The late night aroma from the pizza shops and sausage stands brings back many a memory for New Jersey natives.

The summer and fall are packed with exciting events for the whole family. Music concerts, bonfires, festivals and sporting events will keep you coming back to Seaside Heights. Seaside Heights is a great getaway town in NJ for the entire family regardless of age.
