About Seaside Park, New Jersey

On the edge of Ocean County lies Seaside Park. It's been a popular tourist destination since 1875.

Hundreds of city dwellers flock here during the summer months to soak up the sun and get away from their busy lives.

Seaside Park sits on a tiny strip of sand away from the mainland. It’s in a unique position, with calm water to the west and the wild expanse of the Atlantic to the east.

The original settlers were the Lenape Native American tribes. They loved it because of the plentiful supply of fish, crabs, clams and scallops. But, don't worry – there's still plenty of seafood for you to try today! It’s all freshly caught and absolutely delicious.

This peaceful getaway is perfect for those looking to relax and enjoy doing nothing. Simply pick your spot on the 2-mile stretch of white sand and watch the waves of the Atlantic roll by.

What to do

First, you should hit the beach. The sand is soft and the water is cool.

It's a great spot for the family. If you want to try surfing, there are plenty of lessons available. See if you can catch a wave on your own before the end of the trip!

In the evening, stroll along the boardwalk and take in the stunning views of the ocean sparkling in the moonlight. Why not have dinner in one of the restaurants, or a quiet drink in one of the bars? Or, head further inland if you want a party!

Away from the beach, you can head to the nature park to follow the walking and cycling trails. They'll take you up to the best viewpoints in the area. We suggest taking a picnic and spending a day surrounded by nature.

Top Seaside Park travel tips

It's best to drive to Seaside Park. But, if you want to get a good spot on the beach (and a parking spot), you're going to have to get up early!

During the summer, New Jersey Transit provides a bus service so you can go without a car if you'd like.

Just a warning – the beach can be closed on national holidays as the town often hosts events. Check online before you go (and, before you book a beach pass).
