I was born in August, and I've lived in New Jersey all my life, so I like to tell people that I've been coming to the New Jersey shore every year since before I was born. My grandparents used to own houses at the shore, and even now I find somewhere at the shore and an excuse to go there.... More

Providing & caring... They walked the walk.. Plan on riding a bike if practical for you. Avoids the local Summer parkong difficulties. Bike rentals are available, locally. Most attractions are in easy walking distance from the Inn.

Long Beach Island is the best place to go for families or couples. We have been driving there from New York for years - we have had family reunions there, had romantic weekends, and had great fun with the kiddies. You have beautiful beaches, fantastic restaurants, fun attractions, great shopping and even a little history. We don't bother getting on... More

The beach is truly beautiful, picturesque and wide and there is no boardwalk. The ease of access depends on town. During the spring it is an ideal place to go for a long, beautiful, healthy walk but be prepared for windy weather.

LBI is a pleasant change from the over-developed beach areas on the Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland shores. Lots of restaurants (tho most were still closed for the winter season), plenty of beautiful beach to choose from, small amusement area with rides that is not on the beach itself, and the beach area on the south end of the island at...

A great place to vacation with family and friends. Loved it as there is so much to do for all. From the beaches, shopping, miniature golf, water park, fishing, boating and night life.

In response to some of the criticisms of LBI... we have been coming here for 50 years and have owned a home for 17 years. Some are upset that you can't just swim anywhere... that's for your safety. Also to those not happy that rest rooms and food isn't everywhere. Go to Atlantic City or Wildwood if you want that.... More

This Island is a clean family friendly vacation spot. There are may great restaurants and family activities to do. The beaches are spotless, probably because you have to pay to play.
