Rent a vacation rental home in New Jersey, USA. The irresistible lure of the Jersey Shore is blue skies, refreshing breezes and 127 miles of beautiful, white sandy beaches, making it one of the most desired year-round travel and vacation destinations on the East Coast. New Jersey's Gateway Region is known for the thousands of immigrants that passed through Ellis Island, and is rich in history, world-class arts and culture, professional sports and historic "firsts" – from the first organized baseball game, brewery, steam locomotive, diner and more!
Seaside Heights is the place many people picture when they think of the Jersey shore. Wide sandy beaches, a lively boardwalk, and an energetic nightlife are all there - and within a few hours drive of NYC and Philadelphia. During the warmer months of the year there are more young adults here than at other Jersey shore destinations, to the point where every weekend can seem like spring break.
Even with all the youthful energy Seaside can play host to, it is also a fun place to visit with your family. The beach is great for the kids and the boardwalk is right at hand - enticing you with its games of chance, amusement rides, arcades, and more. Seaside also offers many family oriented events and special weekends throughout the year. These parties and celebrations may include live music, films, parades, and fireworks. All for free.
The anchors of Seaside's boardwalk are the two piers - Casino and Funtown - and their associated rides, stands, and buildings.
The main attractions are the amusement pier with its rides, the carousel building, and the rooftop miniature golf course. The casino pier has games of chance and skill, and you will also find food stands and a number of shops. The carousel building contains a historic wooden horse carousel, pinball machines, video games, and games of chance. Across the street from the carousel building is Breakwater Park. It has water slides, pools, and a small go-cart track. You can even fish in the ocean from the pier but like most of the attractions here, you do need to pay an entry fee to gain access.
At the southern end of the boardwalk is the Funtown Pier. It has its own amusement ride area, enclosed arcade buildings, its own carousel, eateries, shopping booths, games of chance and games of skill. The amusement rides first open on weekends in March and from the middle of June until August they are open every day. After staying open for a few weekends in September, the rides then shut down for the winter.
