If the outdoors calls to you, Long Beach Island is the place to be. Bordered by the Pinelands National Reserve and the Atlantic Ocean, outdoor recreation is endless. Go camping, canoeing, hiking and wildlife viewing at the Pinelands National Reserve or spend the day relaxing on the beach. If you’re more of the city type Long Beach Island is a short drive from three major metropolitan areas: New York City, Philadelphia and Atlantic City. Many families come down and enjoy the sun, surf and sand and with a new custom home, you can extend your summer on Long Beach Island into the fall.
If you are looking for things to do while you are here, Long Beach Island also has a very active calendar of events to stay social with the local community from now into the fall. From the Harvey Cedars 21st Annual CAT-BOAT RACE at the end of August to the Annual Irish Festival in Ship Bottom in September, the ever-popular Chowderfest in early October and every festival and event in between, there is always something fun happening, even in the fall! There are a plethora of tours, tournaments, galas and sporting events happening and Long Beach Island has events large and small for everyone to enjoy.
Over the years Ocean County has ranked in Money magazine for “Best Places to Live”, “Best Places to Raise a Child” in Reader’s Digest and “Best Places to Retire” in Fortune magazine. So, extend your summer on Long Beach Island into the fall and make your favorite vacation spot your home and vacation all year long!
