5 Vacation Tips You May Not Have Known

Vacationing on Long Beach Island can be a great time to build long lasting memories. From the amusement of Beach Haven to the history of Barnegat Light, there is something for every member of the family to enjoy during your Long Beach Island vacation. However, sometimes it would be even better to get a few tips from the locals to make your stay a breeze. Here are a few tips from the locals that you may not know.

  1. Cash is King

Even though we are in a world where debit cards and credit cards are accepted in more and more places, when it comes to LBI, not every place does. So my advice is to keep a supply of cash on hand or check ahead before you visit certain shops. This is especially true if you plan to visit the Barnegat Light area. There are very few ATM’s available, so plan your trip with this in mind.

  1. Bay Beaches

Bay beaches on Long Beach Island are a “hidden gem”. The ocean side beaches are second to none, but sometimes you may be looking for a calmer experience. Most bay beaches are often less crowded and kid friendly. With the lack of waves there is less to worry about when letting the little ones enjoy the water, and with nearby playgrounds bay beaches are a great escape.

  1. LBI Sunsets

There are 2 outstanding spots on Long Beach Island to enjoy a breath taking sunset. In the southern end of the island Bayview Park in Long Beach Township is a great place to sit on the benches along the short boardwalk and take in the sunset over the bay. At the north end of the island Barnegat Light sunsets will keep you coming back to Long Beach Island year after year.

  1. K9 Adventures on LBI
