Ocean County is home to one-third of the fabulous Jersey Shore--44 miles of the Atlantic Ocean coastline with sandy beaches, inviting surf, fantastic fishing and great water sports.
Three major resort areas dot our coast - Point Pleasant Beach Boardwalk with Jenkinson's Aquarium and Seaside Heights Boardwalk featuring an antique Dentzel/Looff Carousel and their boardwalks, Long Beach Island with its activity-packed Beach Haven and Fantasy Island. Add two fabulous oceanfront state parks - ten-mile long Island Beach State Park in Seaside Park and the famed Barnegat Lighthouse State Park in Barnegat Light.
But, the Ocean in Ocean County is only half of it! We also boast the gentle breezes of the protected water playland of Barnegat Bay , not to mention rivers, big and small and great mainland attractions.
Whether you want to relax at a hotel or motel, escape to a quaint B&B, rent a cottage or sand castle at the shore or be informal at one of dozen campgrounds, it's all here. And, we're within a two-hour drive of New York's Broadway, Philadelphia's Liberty Center , the excitement of Atlantic City and Trenton , the state capitol.
